smart Motability

Mercedes-Benz Retail Group is a professional and expert motor group with many years of experience helping customers find the perfect car to match their lifestyle. Proud to work in partnership with the Motability scheme, we can adapt a range of smart cars that provide reliable and efficient driving every day. To support you and help you get on the road sooner than you might think, Mercedes-Benz Retail Group is pleased to offer flexible and reasonable finance contracts with manageable monthly payments.

The Motability scheme has helped millions of people become more mobile by adapting cars to have better stowage, driving, or access features. The smart brand is a firm choice for drivers due to its compact size and ease of driving, not to mention frugal running costs.

Whether you opt for a purchase or a lease, Mercedes-Benz Retail Group can arrange a deal that caters to your needs. Within your finance contract, we can also provide insurance that allows peace of mind and helps you spread the cost over the year.

For more information on smart Motability and our range of finance and insurance deals, contact the team today online or over the phone. Visit one of our dealerships in Epsom, Croydon, Colindale, Brentwood, Loughton, Brooklands or Dartford.

Placing your order

When you visit the retailer to place your order you will need to provide the Motability specialist with:

  • Both parts of your driving licence if you wish to drive
  • Certificate of entitlement from either DWP or SPVA
  • Proof of address, such as a recent utility bill
  • Named drivers' driving licences and consent for their details to be checked against the DVLA
  • Details of any previous accidents and driving convictions that you or your named drivers have

As part of the ordering process, you, your nominated drivers and the retailer will need to sign a Statement of Responsibilities to confirm you understand and agree to abide by the guidelines surrounding the use of your car. This document has been developed to ensure anyone who will be driving the car understand the policies surrounding its usage and to help combat misuse of Motability cars.

Collecting your car

When you collect your car, you will be asked to 'sign' the agreement between yourself and Motability Operations. This has to be done at the retailer and can be completed quickly and simply with the online system, by entering your Personal Identification Number (PIN), which you will receive when your application is accepted.

Finally, if your smart has an Advance Payment*, you will need to pay this to the retailer. Your tax disc will be provided with your car and Motability Operations will hold the V5 document.

So why not follow your heart and listen to your head? They'll both point you towards your nearest Mercedes-Benz Retail Group dealership.

*Advance Payment is not a refundable deposit, it covers the difference between the cost of your car and your allowance over the length of the agreement.
