MELKSHAM Mitsubishi will host an event designed to raise awareness of the support available to disabled people when it comes to Motability and independence.
Chris Edwards, Dealer Event Executive at the Motability charity, will be on hand to explain how the support works, while SVO, a Motability Adaptation Partner based in Calne will also be at the dealership in Western Way for the event on July 30 and 31.
James Ryan, sales manager at Melksham Mitsubishi, said: “This is a great opportunity for people with disabilities to learn more about the financial support available to them to help them become more independent when it comes to driving.
“Motability is a fantastic charity and there are some great deals available to people through the scheme but it’s surprising how many people still don’t know about the help on offer.”
The entire Mitsubishi Mirage and ASX ranges are available on the scheme, as is the Outlander GX3 Auto – one of the few seven-seat four-wheel-drive autos included in the Motability scheme. Full details for all the 14 models are available at Melksham Mitsubishi.
James added: “We’re proud of our ongoing commitment to disabled drivers, and we have some winning Motability deals with Mitsubishi. The Mirage, ASX and Outlander diesel are all fantastic vehicles, and these special offers mean it’s never been easier or more affordable for people registered with the Motability scheme to get behind the wheel of a new Mitsubishi.”
Motability is a national charity offering disabled people the opportunity to obtain a car, powered wheelchair or scooter by using Government-funded mobility allowances. To qualify, recipients must receive a higher-rate Motability component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement. The scheme is also available to parents and carers.
The Motability scheme enables qualifying customers to have a new car every three years with insurance and personal accident cover, servicing and maintenance, full breakdown assistance from the RAC, free replacement tyres fitted by Kwik-Fit and windscreen replacement at no extra cost.
