Why Join Motability?

Our latest customer that bought a Rascal 329 LE ďIt gives me the choice and the easiness (if you want to call it easiness) of getting about. Itís better than going on public transport, being thrown about on a bus: I can sit in my luxury scooter and can drive in style. ď Another customer ďMy scooter was getting older and needed a few repairs so i part exchanged it for another. I needed something that was more adaptable for my condition, for the wheelchairs, etc. etc. and that was the main reason. Plus, it was something I could pay monthly out of my allowances and it was, as far as I was concerned, cheaper than running my own scooter if Iím really, really honest. Trouble free scootering and no worries to me at all.Ē
