Shoppers visiting intu Metrocentre in Gateshead next week, will be given the opportunity to get first hand advice and guidance regarding all aspects of Motability, thanks to a promotion organised by Jennings Motor Group.

Starting on Monday 14th July through to and including Sunday 20th July, Motability specialists from the group’s Kia franchise on Parsons Road in Washington and the Ford branch at Eslington Park in Gateshead, will be on hand at Exhibition Square, to give advice to customers who are eligible to lease a vehicle through the Motability programme.

In addition to an indoor Motability display stand, there will also be a four-car vehicle display, so customers can see some of models available through the programme.

Shoppers will also be given the opportunity to speak to Motability Ambassador, Chris Edwards, who will be present on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th July.

Paul Pellegrino, Motability specialist at Jennings Ford’s branch in Gateshead, said; “The Motability programme enables disabled people to use their government-funded mobility allowance to lease a car.

“The programme offers peace of mind motoring with no worries regarding insurance, breakdown or servicing, as these are all part of the lease agreement.”

Customers eligible to lease a car through the Motability Programme, must be in receipt of either the Higher Rate Motability Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP), receive the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement or the Armed Forces Independence Payment.

Motability’s worry-free package includes; a new car, insurance, servicing and maintenance; full breakdown assistance; replacement tyres; windscreen repair or replacement; 60,000 mileage allowance over three years; many adaptations at no extra cost and two named drivers for your car.

Paul added; “We are delighted and looking forward to giving customers advice and guidance at the event next week, which will also allow us to display examples of models available, in addition to making customers aware about the services available across the Jennings Group.”
