It’s official – JenningsSEAT in Middlesbrough is now a motability specialist accredited dealer.

The dealership, based on Cargo Fleet Lane, is now able to offer an additional service to customers who are entitled to purchase a vehicle through the motability scheme.

Former sales executive, Jamie Davidson, 27, from Ingleby Barwick, has successfully completed a training course, which now means he is an official motability specialist and will be responsible for the dealership’s motability customers.

Jamie said, “I’ve worked in sales at the dealership for the past 2 ½ years and I’m delighted to be taking on the role of motability specialist. It’s an exciting challenge for me to progress my career in sales.”

In order to give a full understanding of the motability scheme, the course involved taking part in a number of theory and practical activities, in addition to learning about the relevant procedure and customer service criteria required when a customer purchases a vehicle through the motability scheme.

Jamie added; “I found the training course extremely beneficial and look forward to putting the theory I’ve learnt into practice.”

In order to provide the motability service to customers, the dealership will work closely with Motability across a variety of schemes. It is through these schemes that disabled people are offered a range of SEAT vehicles, including the Ibiza, Leon, Altea and Toledo.

Customers who need specific adaptations carried out to a vehicle can also take advantage of this service, which is available at JenningsSEAT, in addition to a ‘Home Visit’ service, available to those who are unable to get to the dealership.

Motability, a national UK charity, was set up by the government in 1977 with the object to help disabled people and their families to achieve greater mobility on the road. Since its launch more than 1.28 million cars and powered wheelchairs have been provided.

In order to qualify for a car through the motability scheme, customers must be in receipt of one of the following benefits; the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC of DLA), War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or currently driving a government vehicle, trike or mini.
