Payments & Expenses

Using the Motability Scheme means being able to get a high-quality car from the likes of Smart behind the wheel. It is the aim of our mobility experts here at LSH Auto to be able to provide you with all the assistance and advice you need to help make the right decision and help complete the application process so that you can drive away at the best price in the ideal car.

Part of our dedication to you is to ensure that you are fully aware of all the appropriate costs and fees, and to confirm that you can exchange your mobility allowance to rent the vehicle of your choosing. These payments will be received directly from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) every four weeks.

Advanced Payment Service

An Advanced Payment may be required for those models that cost all or above the sum of your allowance. Such a payment is a one-off and non-refundable payment which is made prior to the payment of any allowance. You may also choose a higher specification by choosing a model with an Advanced Charge, with the charge making up the difference between your allowance and the actual cost of the vehicle lease. The Advanced Payment value is determined by taking into account variables such as the criteria for servicing and maintenance, as well as the anticipated resale value.

Price Warranty

We plan to keep our rates as affordable and up-to - date as possible here at LSH Auto. In reality, prices are changed every three months-January, April, July and October-so make sure you search for the best deal at these times. While the advanced payment of a selected vehicle will adjust over the course of the year, we are pleased to provide a price guarantee that guarantees that you will be covered from any price fluctuations until your order is approved by Motability.

Running expenses for your car

You need to be mindful that you will also be responsible for a range of extra costs after you have taken possession of your car-most importantly the cost of petrol. As such, to ensure the best possible value, you should be assured that you will be able to handle the associated costs of operating your car, or even selecting a model that provides greater fuel economy.

One of the benefits of the mobility scheme is that not only are you driving away in the new model, but you are still compensated by your leasing agreement for road tax, insurance, operation, breakdown cover and more. As a consequence, you can be assured that operating costs over the duration of your contract should remain manageable.

Other expenses

There will be occasions, of course, that you incur fees that will also need to be paid for. These involve such instances as excess protection when filing a claim, fines for parking or speeding, and cover for any robbery or harm to your vehicle's personal belongings.
