Motability has confirmed that it will be extending leases for users who are coming to the end of theirs for a six month period.
It explained how the latest Government announcements will have a major impact on the scheme, with many dealerships now closing.
The organisation said it was doing all it could to keep users mobile, despite announcements meaning the end of most dealer-based activity for now.
This means Motability is not expecting dealers to process any further orders, or manage handovers, or car returns.
This means for those that are coming to the end of a lease, it will be automatically extended for six months. There will be no need to contact mobility; and users will continue to be insured.
It did suggest though that if users plan to leave the scheme at the end of the lease, they should contact Motability to discuss arrangements.
As part of the announcement, Motability stated: “At this time we are unable to process any further orders or new applications to the Scheme.”
Adding: “Non-essential service, maintenance and repairs are likely to be cancelled as dealers close, but the RAC will continue to offer an emergency breakdown service. RSA Motability (RSAM) will be able to handle claims, but please be prepared for longer calling times than usual.”
