We’re here to provide our customers access to affordable, worry-free mobility.

Motability Operations was established in 1978 to deliver the Motability Scheme, under contract to Motability the national charity (which is responsible for oversight of the Scheme). We provide mobility to almost 635,000 customers with a wide range of different disabilities, providing an opportunity to achieve freedom and independence.

As we do not pay shareholder dividends we can focus purely on delivering for our customers, with profits available for reinvestment to support their current and future needs. In addition we may also donate to Motability (the Charity) supporting their broader aim to enhance the lives of disabled people with transportation solutions.

Focused on our stakeholders

Our objectives underpin the core Scheme proposition, ensuring that through our people and our partners, we meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s customers.

No matter what, supporting our customers is our number one priority. This clear purpose underpinned our response to the Covid-19 pandemic to support customers, employees and the Scheme proposition.

How we deliver and protect the Scheme

We provide mobility to 635,000 customers, all of whom are in receipt of the Government’s mobility allowance. Through integration of manufacturers, dealers and other suppliers, we deliver customers with worry-free, affordable mobility to meet their individual needs.

As operators of the Motability Scheme, we bear a number of significant risks which could, if not carefully managed, undermine the long-term sustainability of the customer proposition.
