Are you in receipt of DLA or PIPs? You could have a Scooter using your weekly allowance. If you are awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) you are eligible to join the Motability Powered Wheelchair and Scooter Scheme (PWSS) and lease a new Scooter. If you have 12 months or more of your current allowance remaining then you can go ahead and lease a Scooter.
Motability is now offering all new 4 mph Mid-Range, 6 mph and 8 mph Scooters canopies to protect you from the typical British weather.
Over the past 30 years, Motability has helped millions of disabled people exchange their government funded mobility allowance to lease a new Car, Mobility Scooter, Power/Electric Wheelchair and also adaptations such as also vehicle adaptations such as Personal and Scooter Hoists, Hand and Foot controls.

The scheme offers breakdown assistance from Motability Assist, replacement batteries and tyres, servicing, maintenance and repairs, Insurance equivalent to fully comprehensive cover and weatherproof storage cover for when your product is not being used. Capitol Mobility is a recognised accredited dealership and has been working closely with the Motability Scheme for many years. Our experienced team will be pleased to give advice on the most appropriate Scooter. We stock a wide range of Scooters to choose from. We offer a free, no obligation assessment at your home and will bring some products for you to try.
Each Scooter differs depending on the number of wheels, its maximum speed, the maximum weight it can carry, the average distance it can travel on one battery charge and the actual weight of the product itself.
All our staff have attended specialist training and are monitored to ensure we provide the very best level of customer service. We will carry out all the service and any maintenance on your product, which is all included on the scheme.
Before arranging a home assessment we will discuss your needs and ask a few basic questions, such as:
· Your height and weight
· How far you travel on your scooter
· If there are hills in your local area that you regularly travel up and down
· If you will use the product around your home
· If you are likely to carry much shopping on your scooter
· If you want to transport the product in a car
· How much space you have to store the product
Each of these factors will make a difference to which product is right for you.
Once you are happy with your decision with the product from Capitol Mobility the Motability Scheme will ask for a £100.00 non refundable deposit before the delivery of your product. Then at the end of your three year lease, you will be eligible for a £100 End of Contract Bonus.
The following are included in a worry-free package:
• A brand new Scooter every three years
• Insurance, servicing and maintenance
• Full breakdown assistance
