Low deposit finance for new & used adapted vehicles

i.e. people with disabilities and their direct family members.
At Jubilee, we have firm agreements in place with major high street lenders who will sympathetically consider low deposit funding applications from people with disabilities, even where their age or condition may not permit them to seek full or part time employment. Our Mobility Vehicle Finance plans are available on both new adapted vehicles or any of our superb, 200 point quality inspected & guaranteed, low mileage pre-owned accessible vehicles.
IMPORTANT : You do NOT necessarily need to be in receipt of Disability Living Allowances to qualify for our Mobility Vehicle Finance Plans, however any allowances or pensions you may receive are taken into account. (Note : we approve well over 95% of finance applications for new or used wheelchair accessible vehicles)
You can use our FINANCE CALCULATOR below to work out the best payment plan for you.
Finance deposits on used wavs start at just £500 or less depending on the value of the vehicle and funding is available whether or not you are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance, are disabled or unable to work because of your medical condition or having to care full time for a disabled person, subject to status. The estimated weekly equivalent price quoted on individual stock vehicle listings presumes a deposit of circa 20% with monthly repayments over 60 months at a typical apr of 13.5%.
