Tyres Changed on The Motability Scheme


If you have a car on the Motability scheme and the tyres need changing then this is included - they are free (you don't have to pay at the time, although technically you could argue you pay for this out of the DLA payments that are used for the overall leasing of the car). Kwick-Fit is the supplier and contractor for tyres and you can contact them direct to arrange changing and replacement - they can also come to your home or work as they offer a mobile service.
