Marshall MINI is a proud champion of the Motability scheme, offering a range of cars for disabled drivers that can be adapted in a variety of ways.
The Clubman, Paceman, Countryman and classic three-door and five-door MINI models are all on offer for Motability drivers, often with nil advance payment through Marshall. With extra stowage facilities, easier access provisions and modified driving tools all available, mostly free of charge, you can drive away in a MINI that perfectly suits you.
The comprehensive scheme is designed for ease. Your car is paid for using your mobility allowance to cover the monthly payments, and you simply pay the difference on cars that are more expensive than your allowance. These payments cover the road tax, accident and breakdown cover and insurance for up to two named drivers, as well as maintenance costs, such as servicing and windscreen and tyre replacements.
You can drive the car for three years and up to 60,000 miles, and simply select a new car at the end of the contract.
Here at Marshall, we have a dedicated team who will give you more information on the cars and offers, and organise the adaptions for you.
Make an appointment to see one of the team to discover the MINI Motability models and to get started with your new car. Either call or enquire online today to arrange a time that suits you.
