What to make of Motability? The charity leases vehicles to disabled people. 1.7 million are eligible.

Smart management has constructed a single package (servicing, breakdown, tax, insurance etc) for each customer, which is tremendously popular, especially as Motability Operations has arranged for such things to be paid directly by government.
