Volvo Motability

Marshall Volvo is pleased to offer a range of cars with competitive deals for disabled drivers through the Motability scheme.

The sophisticated V40 hatchback and bold XC60 compact SUV are available through the scheme, both of which are praised for their reliability, safety and comfortable drive. Both models can be adapted to suit you, with modifications on the access, stowage and driving controls. Most of the modifications are free of charge and the team at Marshall Volvo will organise them for you.

Thanks to our exclusive offers with lower advance payments, you could secure a Volvo in a higher trim level or specification.

The car you choose will be yours to drive for up to three years, and after that time you can trade it in for a brand new model. All you have to do is pay for it using your mobility allowance, and pay a bit more if the cost of the car exceeds your allowance. It has a 60,0000-mile limit, which is usually more than enough for everyday driving.

Thanks to the scheme, you don’t have to worry about road tax, breakdown and accident cover, insurance or servicing, it’s all included in the monthly payments. Tyre and windscreen replacements are also built in to the cost.

If you would like to drive a Volvo through the scheme, make an appointment with us to view the cars and get started. Call us or enquire online to book a time to come and see us.
