What if I donít qualify for Motability?

In some cases you might find yourself in need of a vehicle typically associated with Motability, an adapted vehicle or a wheelchair accessible vehicle, but you don’t qualify for the scheme. If you find yourself in this position, you can pay privately for a vehicle or possibly go for a similar package to the Motability solution.

Even if you aren't taking getting your car through the Motability Scheme, it is worth noting that it has been designed with disabled drivers, passengers and their family in mind. As such it makes sense to go through it to understand some of what you might need to consider. Here at McElmeel’s we can talk you through the whole process and provide suggestions on how you can achieve a similar package, privately. 

At McElmeel Mobility Services we have a range of specialists who have decades of experience in our industry. These specialists are the same people who would support you through the Motability process, so you will be able to avail of the same available knowledge. We will start to gather an understanding of your own specific needs, from the adaptations or conversions needed through to having an understanding about how you intend to finance the vehicle. Furthermore, we can support you to understand any maintenance and servicing options you might enquire after.

A new car might not be the solutions so we can also take you through our range of nearly new and second-hand wheelchair accessible conversions. Certain adaptations might also be available for installation onto second-hand vehicles so we will give the best advice and service possible to help you get the most suitable option for you.
Finally, circumstances might dictate that instead of a purchase. you are seeking a long-term lease and this option may also be available to private customers.
