Motability

We are proud partners of Motability, a government-created scheme that has been helping disabled people to become more mobile and independent since 1977.

In exchange for your mobility allowance, you can select a brand new vehicle at Freeborn Motors from the Citroën and Mitsubishi range. With Citroën, choose from city cars such as the C1, MPVs like the Berlingo Multispace or upmarket vehicles such as the DS 4. From Mitsubishi, we offer hatchbacks such as the Mirage and SUVs that include the ASX and Outlander.

As part of the scheme, we can adapt your vehicle of choice, free of charge, to make it much simpler to operate. For example, hand controls can be installed adjacent to the steering wheel, allowing the driver to operate acceleration and braking functions. If access is an issue, we can assist by modifying a seat, enabling it to swivel so that your entry and exit is much easier. We can also introduce a hoist system to help with access. If you require the use of a wheelchair or scooter, we can install a system that will enable you to easily store such an item, either in the boot or on top of the vehicle.

There are a number of other advantages to Motability, including free insurance, inclusive servicing and maintenance, tyre and windscreen replacement and full breakdown assistance. You will also be entitled to a 60,000 mileage allowance for each 36-month period. Furthermore, Motability allows you to select a new vehicle every three years.

You don’t need to be the driver to take advantage of the Motability Scheme, because you can nominate up to three people to do so on your behalf.

Eligibility for Motability is dependent on you receiving one of the following:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

  • As long as you have 12 months remaining on one of the above allowances, you will qualify for the scheme.
