Motability Scheme

Sirus has worked with Motability for over 15 years and we are a Motability Preferred Adaptations Supplier. Many of our customers use the Motability Contract Hire Scheme, which enables people to become mobile by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease an adapted car or wheelchair accessible vehicle. The Motability WAV Scheme provides a simple way to lease a wheelchair accessible vehicle without the worry of owning and running one. You are eligible to use the Motability Scheme if you receive the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment or the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance. Today, over 600,000 disabled people and their families benefit from worry-free motoring. Read more about how the Motability Scheme works.

Motability Grants

Many of our customers apply for a grant towards the cost of the Advance Payment of their Motability WAV.  If you would like to apply, you should contact Motability Grants. If they think you may be eligible, they will send you an application form to complete.
