It's Motability Awareness Month all September at Lookers
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.

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.
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.
Qualified Specialists across our dealership network are ready to help you find your next, or even first, Motability car.
We're Supporting Autism Hour
We are really pleased to be taking part in another amazing awareness campaign - this year’s Autism Hour - which gets underway in October.
The initiative set up by The National Autistic Society is designed to help create autism-friendly communities all over the UK, with thousands of shops and businesses, including Lookers, signed up to give autistic shoppers a much calmer experience and an environment they can enjoy and feel safe in.
We will reduce the noise, turn down the lights where it is safe to do so, and provide awareness training for our staff to make our place of work a place that works for autistic people and their families.
Stay tuned to our social channels where we will provide more details on dates and times for #AutismHour.
