  • 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.

    • 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.

    • My experience at Keith Motors Christchurch was positive because , Haydon was a real nice person and we had quite a bit in common. I would like another lesson in some of the audio and phone I am still having problems with. Can you arrange?

      Mr Ken Lloyds, 6th December 2018

    • The experience at Keith Motors Select was good because, to start with, I was pleasantly surprised you were prepared to hold the car for a month, albeit in return for a deposit. I also found Mr Coleman helpful and informative, especially when advising me of the extent to which Keith Motors are prepared to go to to make the sales experience a satisfactory one. There are 3 or 4 small issues I have and it will be interesting to see how these are handled under the warranty but I have no reason to anticipate anything other than good service.

    • The cars displayed were all clean and tidy The salesman ,Ben was attentive and very helpful. Finally I am very happy with the vehicle I purchased.

      Mr John Forster, 22nd October 2018

    • I do not live locally to Keith Motors Christchurch. Approx. 3 years I was on the Motorway driving to the coast and had a problem with my Kuga of that time. On arrival at my destination I started looking for a local Ford agent and found my way to Keith Motors where I found them to be very helpful. My own local Ford agent, from whom I had purchased my car, had unfortunately closed and so when the next service was due I took my car to Keith Motors. Everything went well and on the strength of that my wife decided to have her car serviced there as well. We have, for the last 3 years had our cars serviced at Keith Motors without problem. I'd recommend them to all.

      Mr B, 16th October 2018

      Mr P, 15th October 2018

    • I'd definitely recommend Keith Motors Christchurch to friends and family because the salesnan, Sam, really listened to my needs and narrowed it down to a couple of cars to try and talked through the benefits of both. After a test drive and purchase of my car he did everything possible to deliver it to me on a convenient day. The car looked brand new on delivery and Sam made sure that I could use all the media features and controls.

      Mrs Kay Stead, 14th October 2018

    • The staff at Keith Motors Verwood were good because I know all the staff there and they go out of their way to help me, whether it relates to servicing or buying a car. Earlier this year I had a lot of work done on a previous car to get it through the MOT. However, it failed on emissions, which was unexpected. Ford did not charge me for the work. I am very grateful for this and consider them to give a very good and caring service.

      Mrs Angela Oliver, 14th October 2018

    • I would recommend Keith Motors Select to friends and family because as they always aim to please

      Mr Kevin Gilbert, 14th October 2018

    • I'd endorse Keith Motors Christchurch because Ryan was very open and placed no pressure on me to buy. I found him to be honest and helpful throughout the process. The car was presented well and I was allowed to take it out on a test drive, and it was that sold the car to me. Susequently there was one minor problem which Keith Motors are in the process of sorting out and any delay has not been their fault and I would like to praise Colin and staff for the way that they have dealt with this and managing to solve the problem and bring it to a successful conclusion. I have already recommended Keith Motors in my conversations with my acquaintances especially for the way that they have attended to me and the way that they have stuck with the problem. There is one other person I would like to praise and that is the telephone receptionist, she comes over as having a truly lovely personality and I can say that her cheerful and welcoming answers on the phone are more than acceptable and encouraging. Well done Keith Motors.

      Mr John Bright, 13th October 2018

    • I'd definitely recommend Keith Motors Christchurch because they extremely helpful they didn't pressure you for a sale , we had a number of test drives with Ben who is an excellent salesman. Very happy with our trade in and sale.

      Mr Rowland Collis, 13th October 2018

    • I'd recommend Keith Motors Christchurch because Hayden Morton-Taylor was extremely helpful pre sale, during the sale and post sale. He is the reason we bought Ford rather than VW or Mini.
