New scooter or powerchair every three years

You can choose from a wide range of new scooters and powerchairs every 3 years. At the end of your 3-year lease you will receive a £100 End-of-Contract Bonus.


The Motability scheme includes an insurance package, which provides cover in case of an accident, damage or theft of your scooter or powerchair. You’re also covered for any damage caused by your scooter or electric wheelchair to other products, property or people.

Servicing and maintenance

To keep your scooter or powerchair reliable and in good condition, all servicing and maintenance is included as part of Motability’s worry-free package.

Breakdown recovery

If you breakdown or get a puncture, you just call Motability Assist on 0800 953 5000. They will make sure to get you and your scooter/powerchair home where you can then arrange any repairs with your dealer.

Battery replacement

Your scooter or powerchair will come with a battery as standard, all you need to do is keep it charged. If anything goes wrong through normal everyday use, Motability will replace your battery free of charge.

Tyre replacement

Motability will repair or replace your tyres if there is a problem, free of charge.

Your choice of optional extra

Your lease package includes a weatherproof storage cover to protect your product when it’s not in use. If you already have a cover, you can choose another accessory up to the value of £35.

Do I need to manage the payments?

Motability will organise the relevant payments to be deducted from your mobility allowance every four weeks, they'll go directly from your benefit payment agency to them. Because most scooters or powerchairs cost less than your weekly allowance, you should receive the leftover money to spend however you choose.
