Mobility is regarded as essential to much of modern life but for some people it is not always easy to access.
But for around 300 customers of Freeborn DS, Citroën and Mitsubishi who qualify under the Motability scheme, Tony Black is the key to them getting out and about.
Tony is Freeborn Group Motability accredited specialist, helping users of the scheme choose a vehicle for which they qualify because they receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS). Vehicles are taxed, insured, and serviced as part of the leasing scheme.
“Many people don’t recognise how good the scheme is and that you don’t have to be able to drive to qualify for a Motability lease car,” explains Tony.
“Children as young as three can apply through a parent or guardian while disabled people aged 16 can apply for a driving licence and take a test rather than waiting until they are 17 to drive a car.
“I can arrange home demonstration visits and cars can be adapted to suit the needs of their users. As far as my customers are concerned, the C4 Picasso and Berlingo Multispace are the most popular models for adaptations because they have such generous space, although the C3 Picasso and Mitsubishi ASX is also a popular choice because it has excellent accessibility.
“My role is not just to sell cars through the scheme but to be a point of contact for Motability scheme users. Our service departments are accredited, just like I am, and will arrange courtesy cars or for collection and delivery when service or repairs are due.
“Everyone here at Freeborn DS, Citroën and Mitsubishi value our
relationships with Motability customers and realises the importance of
their car to them. We always do our utmost to ensure it meets their
needs and we give the best possible service.
