Why Motability

What is Motability?

Since 1977, the Motability charity has been working in partnership with manufacturers to provide the Motability Scheme, a nationwide initiative that gives disabled motorists easier access to a car through a lease arrangement.

The scheme is government approved and funded, and supported by many world-renowned motoring brands including BMW, Volkswagen, and SEAT, to name just a few. The Agnew Group are proud to support the Motability scheme in Northern Ireland, and can offer a range of 9 Manufacturers to choose from.

Eligibility

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following disability benefits and you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. Please note that the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Scheme.

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

If your benefit is not renewed during the lease period on your chosen model, then you will have to return it when your allowance ends. It's also possible to apply on the behalf of a child aged three or older, as long as they are entitled to the Higher Mobility component of the DLA. There are no medical assessments for the scheme, and you can choose a vehicle straight away without being placed on a waiting list.

All vehicles are provided fully taxed and insured, and every manufacturer and dealer will offer you a reassuringly high level of cover.

How it works

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car by exchanging their Government funded mobility allowance. If you receive either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) , the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.

1. Choose your vehicle

When choosing a new vehicle, there is a lot to consider, including cost, suitability and fuel consumption. To make it easier to find a vehicle that meets your needs, please speak to any of our trained specialists who will ‘best match’ your specific requirements to the new car you deserve.

2. Search for the right Manufacturer

Once you’ve worked out what’s important to you in a vehicle, the next step is to visit a dealer...

Financial Help

We may be able to support you by:

  • Advising you about cars and adaptations that would meet your needs; some of which may be available at a low Advance Payment
  • Arranging a lease extension on your current Motability car if it is still suitable
  • Arranging a mobility or driving assessment to find out exactly what you need
  • Considering an application for financial help towards the solution that meets your needs*

If Motability UK is able to provide financial help, you are expected to contribute as much as you can afford towards a vehicle solution that will meet your mobility needs. There is a lot of demand for financial help and they try to ensure that the available money is used to help as many people as possible to become or remain mobile.

What can Motability give financial help towards?

  • Advance Payments on standard production cars. This is the one-off upfront payment on a car

Adaptations

Adaptations are available through Agnew Motability to make your driving, or travelling, experience as comfortable as possible. Adaptations can help you drive, stow your wheelchair or scooter, or get in and out of the car.

Driving adaptations, to help improve your driving experience

Agnew Accessibility

The Agnew Group has been working with 2 local charities Autism NI and MindWise NI to provide training and support for our employees.

We are aiming to achieve accreditation with Autism NI and as part of this process every Agnew Group dealership has Autism Champions who have been trained by Autism NI and can support you or anyone in your family who may need extra support during your visit.

Autism NI have also given us guidance about the provision of a quiet space in our showrooms, and within each of these you will find a sensory pack (ear defenders, darkened glasses and fidget pack) which help to calm anxiety.

Mindwise NI has assisted us with training of our Sales Executives, Aftersales Advisors on mental health disorders. This training has empowered our employees to recognise and understand the most common mental health issues, as well as provide the required skills to manage these sensitive customer journeys effectively.

The Agnew Group prides itself on ensuring that every customer has the same premium level of service, regardless of personal circumstance.

If you do require any additional support, please contact us in advance of visiting and we will do our utmost to make your visit as stress free as possible.

Retail customers

You will be greeted at reception with a friendly welcome and offered refreshments and a seat in the coffee lounge. The host will then introduce you to a Sales Executive who will assist you with your enquiry.

The Sales Executive will establish what you would like to achieve from your visit, how much time you have and where you would like to start. They will ask relevant questions to ensure they fully understand your needs.

They will recommend a suitable car based on what they have understood of your wants and needs and demonstrate the key benefits and features based on this information.

If you want to know the value of your current car they will give you a valuation based on the age, condition, mileage and cost of any repairs if needed. The offer will be based on a technical and commercial appraisal of your car as a trade in.

You will be given the opportunity to drive the car and we have a number of test drive routes available based on your most common type of driving i.e. motorways, rural roads. This will allow you to experience the drive and the functionality of the key features of the vehicle to ensure you are happy with the vehicle of choice.

Based on your requirements a fully comprehensive quotation will be provided by the sales executive on the vehicle you have chosen along with a range of funding options should you require them.
