For the last 35 years the government-funded Motability Scheme has helped more than three million people get mobile by using their mobility allowance to lease a car. Toomey Basildon has teamed up with Citroën to offer a diverse range of great cars under the scheme capable of meeting practically all motoring requirements.
Motability enables disabled people to lease a new car directly from us. If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment, the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement or the Armed Forces Independence Payments, then you may be eligible to join.
There is no upper age limit, and eligible parents or guardians can even order a car on behalf of their child if they are aged three or older. Up to two named drivers can be included as part of the lease, so even if you don't drive you can still take advantage of the scheme. Additional b enefits of the scheme include a fully comprehensive insurance policy, regular servicing and maintenance, full breakdown assistance, replacement tyres at no extra cost, window and windscreen repair and a choice of new car every three years.
At Toomey Citroën we have a wide range of cars for you to choose from, matching all needs and budgets. We currently have seven Citroën vehicles available on the scheme, including the agile Citroën C1, the stylish Citroën C3 and the ultra-practical Citroën C4 Picasso.
Once you have confirmed your eligibility to us then one of our Motability staff members will talk you through the variety of Citroën cars available. When you have decided on the model you prefer, our staff will complete the order online for you. You will then receive an acceptance letter with a Personal Identification Number, and you need to bring this with you when you come to collect your car.
Delivery times can vary depending on your choice of model and any adaptations required, and we will keep you constantly updated on the progress of your car. To find out more about the Motability Scheme, don't hesitate to contact us or pay us a visit at our showroom on West Mayne, just to the west of Basildon.
