Motability at Keith Motors

The Motability Scheme has been changing people’s lives since it started in 1978 and we’re delighted to be among the manufacturers who now support the charity. All of our models are built with increased space and practicality ensuring ownership is a pleasure.

As a scheme member you get access to a brand new vehicle every 3 years, with insurance, full breakdown assistance and a number of other great benefits that mean getting around is easy and trouble-free. There are no waiting lists or medical assessments, so it’s easy to sign up and choose your car.

You can apply to join the Motability Scheme if you receive one of the Government funded mobility allowances, including the Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component (ERMC) of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).

The government funded Motability scheme allows disabled people to retain their independence with exceptional value financial schemes to be used on a new car.

We at Keith Motors are extremely supportive of the national Motability Scheme, which allows motorists to use their Motability allowance on a new Ford.

Motability Adaptions

There are hundreds of adaptations that can be made to your vehicle on the Motability Scheme, ranging from simple driving controls to person hoists to lift a wheelchair user into a standard car.

All adaptations are designed to help make your driving, or travelling, experience as comfortable as possible and depending on which adaptations you choose they can help you drive, stow your wheelchair or scooter, or get in and out of the car.

Once you’ve decided on which adaptation you’d like made to your Ford vehicle our Motability Specialist will place an order for your vehicle. You can rest assured that everything will be taken care of for you by our specialist team and your adaptations will be;

  • produced and fitted by Motability accredited manufacturers and installers who will contact your dealer to ensure they are fitted before delivery
  • maintained, along with your car, by the Motability Operations Fleet Service team to provide worry-free motoring for the length of your contract
  • in most cases your Ford Motability Dealer will be able to order your vehicle and adaptation at the same time, while agreeing with the installer when and where the adaptation is to be fitted.
