There are two options (contract hire and hire purchase) that enable you to turn your mobility allowance into a mobility solution for your needs. Hearing And Mobility will help you decide which option would be best suited for your personal preference and financial budget.

Contract Hire

With the convenience of a single monthly payment, no advance payment required, and all of the essential extras listed below, ‘Contract Hire’ means worry-free mobility.

Contract Hire includes:

  • Powered wheelchair or scooter
  • Insurance*
  • Extended warranty*
  • Servicing and repairs
  • Tyres (excluding punctures) and batteries
  • Breakdown cover

The period of the agreement is normally 3 years. The vehicle is returned at the end of the agreed period with no further costs incurred.

Hire Purchase

Some customers prefer to buy their own vehicle, particularly if special adaptations are needed. The period of the agreement is normally 3 years  You will own your vehicle after the agreement has ended.

Hire Purchase includes:

  • Powered wheelchair or scooter
  • Insurance*

You are responsible for organising and paying for any servicing, repairs and breakdown cover. However, you do have the option to purchase cover for these. The powered wheelchair or scooter usually comes with a 1-year manufacturer cover that will protect you against funding the cost of any serious manufacturer defects during the first year of ownership.

* You pay an excess in the event of theft, accidental damage, third party, or an extended warranty claim.
