WARNING - NEW TAX RULES START IN:

smart Motability in Blackpool and Bolton

Get about town in a perfectly-adapted Motability smart car with the help of the team at Marshall and our exclusive range of competitive offers.

Designed for the city, smart cars are compact, easy to drive and frugal to run. The scheme allows disabled drivers to choose from the fortwo with two seats or the forfour with room for four to travel. All of the models can be parked nose to the kerb, making them exceptionally practical for those based in the city.

There are lots of adaptations available on the smart cars for people with mobility difficulties and we can organise them all for you. From stowage adaptations to more convenient driving controls and easy access facilities, we can help you to get a car that’s perfectly suited to your needs.

Your car is paid for in exchange for your mobility allowance and you can pay the difference if you would like a model in a higher spec than the one covered through the scheme. It will be yours to drive for up to three years and it comes with a 60,000-mile limit. We have made the smart cars even more affordable with a series of offers, typically reducing the price of the advance payment.

Also included through the scheme is the road tax, insurance for up to two named drivers, accident and breakdown cover and servicing with tyre and windscreen replacement costs built in.

Get in touch with Marshall smart today, either over the phone or online using the contact form, to arrange an appointment with the team to get started with your new car.
