This well-run and beneficial scheme allows our clients in Street, Trowbridge, Yeovil and the surrounding areas to exchange all, or a percentage, of the higher rate mobility allowance for mobility scooters, power chairs, cars or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAV). Specialists in a wide range of mobility equipment and living aids, Mendip Mobility Ltd’s team of professional and knowledgeable staff is happy to offer advice about the best scooters and power chairs to suit you.

To suit the requirements for the Motability Scheme and avail of our range of mobility equipment, you must be in receipt of any one of these benefits, with at least 12 months left:
If you’re unsure whether or not you qualify, the Motability Scheme website has a list of questions you can answer which will indicate if you’re eligible.
You exchange your mobility allowance for a vehicle of your choice, with payments to the scheme transferred directly from your allowance provider. This is a simple solution which negates any further input from you. Bear in mind, however, that you will need to forward an Advance Payment for larger vehicles and cover the costs of any additional extras you choose as well. The scheme accepts trade-ins which can be put towards the cost of the Advance Payment.
The lease lasts for three years after which you can return your chosen scooter, car or chair and receive a brand-new replacement if you are renewing.
If you can’t afford this upfront payment, you may be entitled to a means-tested grant. Further information is available on the Mobility Scheme’s charity website - https://www.motability.org.uk/
Starting at £12.50 per week, Mendip Mobility has a number of scooters and power chairs available at our mobility shops in Street, Trowbridge and Yeovil. This cost covers the following, making the scheme an attractive option for many of our eligible clients:
