Did you know that if you return your car in good condition at the end of your Motability Scheme lease, you could be eligible to receive a Good Condition Bonus? The amount you receive depends on the length of the agreement. From 1 July 2019, the Good Condition Bonus has increased to £600 for a three year lease and £900 for a five year lease.
What is the Good Condition Bonus?
The Good Condition Bonus is our way of saying thank you for looking after your Motability Scheme car. When you return your car at the end of your lease, it’s 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 of our customers.
When you hand your car back 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.
About the Motability Scheme
The Motability Scheme enables anyone in receipt of a higher rate mobility allowance (such as the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment or the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance) to use their mobility allowance to lease a car, scooter, powered wheelchair or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. The Scheme provides flexible and hassle-free access to a brand new, reliable vehicle of your choice – giving you greater freedom, everyday.
How does the Scheme work?
You simply exchange all, or part of your mobility allowance to lease the vehicle of your choice. You choose the vehicle you want at a price that works for you, and payments are deducted from your higher rate mobility allowance every four weeks, then paid directly to us by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
Our standard lease is over three years, or five years if you are leasing a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and we take care of running costs such as insurance for up to two named drivers (this doesn’t have to be you), servicing, maintenance, breakdown cover and tyre and windscreen repair and replacement. All you need to do is add fuel and go.
