At W R Davies Dacia we believe in the importance of the Motability Scheme, which is why we have a Motability Specialist on hand to help provide you with all you need to know about the scheme. In addition, they will also guide you through the application process, leaving you to simply look forward to driving your new Dacia vehicle.
One of the most significant government initiatives for helping people with a disability maintain their independence has been the introduction of the Motability Scheme. Alongside some of the biggest names in the automotive industry, this registered charity enables eligible claimants to use their mobility allowance towards a brand new vehicle from such manufacturers as Dacia. The Motability Scheme allows you drive worry-free with a new car every 3 years, full service, maintenance and breakdown is included along with nominating two insured drivers.
To be eligible for the scheme, you should have at least 12 months’ award remaining on one of the following benefits:
If you fulfil this stipulation, you will be able to put your payment towards the car of your choice, as well as receive any necessary adaptations, full vehicle insurance, annual road tax, breakdown cover, and more as part of the package.
If you return your car in good condition at the end of your lease, you could be eligible to receive our Good Condition Bonus. The amount you receive depends on the length of the agreement: it's currently £500 for a three-year lease and £800 for a five-year lease.
When you hand back your car at the end of the lease, your dealer will take a photo and brief description of the car's condition. We know that over the course of your lease your car may show signs of wear and tear including minor scratches, dents or damage caused by wheelchairs or other mobility aids. However, if your car shows no sign of serious damage, you could be eligible for the bonus. You may still be entitled even if you have made an insurance claim or have a car on a low mileage lease extension. Please be aware if you have ended your agreement early, you will not be eligible for the bonus.
Receiving the bonus
If you are in line to receive the bonus, there is no need to contact us - we will automatically send you a cheque within 28 days of the car being returned.
The Good Condition Bonus is our way of saying thank you for looking after your Motability car. When you return your car at the end of your lease, it is sold, either online through a network of dealers, or at an auction house. Handing back your car in good condition helps us to achieve the best prices, keeping costs low for all our customers.
