Welcome to Quay Auto Centre's Motability Page, here we will give you a basic overview of the scheme and what is included.

The Motability scheme allows recipients of certain qualifying mobility allowances, to use this allowance to pay for use of a new car. Your payment gets taken straight from your allowance provider to make paying for your car simple. Some cars may require a top up of this allowance in the form of an advance payment towards the cost of leasing the car or towards the cost of certain adaptations which may help you with access to the car, stowage of a mobility aid or possibly even driving the car.

You can start an application by coming to Quay Auto Centre where one of the members of the Motability accredited sales team will guide you through the process of choosing the right car for your needs and test driving one, if the correct car is available. They can then guide you through the application process with motability. Or if you prefer you can start the application process at home once you have decided on the correct car and adaptations for the period of your lease.

  • A brand new car every three years
  • Insurance, routine servicing, MOT and maintenance
