September is officially Motability Awareness Month at Lookers, so we wanted to take the opportunity to talk to you about the Motability Scheme, the inspirational people who have used Lookers to get from A to B and the specially trained staff who go the extra mile to help eligible customers find the car that suits their needs.
What is the Motability Scheme?
The Motability Scheme is a government-funded scheme which allows motorists with disabilities to lease a new car every three years, and have insurance, road tax and repairs included in the monthly payments.
Our Motability Customers
Through the scheme we have been privileged to meet and help some inspirational people find the car that suits their personal requirements. Below you will find a couple of case studies that help paint a picture of who can benefit from the Lookers Motability Scheme.
After an unexpected fall, David was told he would never be able to walk again. Now he walks and drives almost every day. The VW Golf GTD he purchased through Lookers and the Motability Scheme gave him plenty of room in the boot for his scooter and hoist with the back seats still up.
As a child, Margaret was thrown under a bus which led to her leg being amputated. Recently retired from teaching, Margaret has relied on the Motability Scheme for many years to visit pupils who are not in mainstream school. Through the purchase of a Ford Kuga with Lookers she was able to have easy access and plenty of space.

Lookers Motability Specialists
Behind every inspiring story of people like David and Margaret, there’s a Motability Specialist on hand to give support and expertise to customers who are looking for a car that could make a positive difference to their everyday life.
One of those Specialists is Julie Sidgwick, who works at Lookers Ford Middlesbrough.
Julie loves helping Motability customers and gets an immense sense satisfaction from helping them find a real sense of freedom on the road, and this passion was recently rewarded as Julie picked up an award from the Scheme for providing outstanding customer service.
It’s not just Julie who has picked up certified recognition in recent times; both Lookers Kia Stockport and Lookers Volkswagen Newcastle have celebrated top awards this year for their work with the Motability Scheme.
