Frequently Asked Questions
You understand you may have a few questions about how Covid-19 will affect leasing a new car on Motability at Holdcroft which is absolutely fine. Please feel free to get in touch with your nearest Motability dealership by arranging a call back.
The length of time it takes for your car to be delivered could vary considerably due to the disruption experienced by car manufacturers during this time. It is worth checking with the dealership if the car you are interested in is in stock or whether it will need to be ordered from the manufacturer, which may well mean a delay. There may well be a comparable car from a different manufacturer, so it is worth considering this before you place your order.
Where possible, we strongly recommend customers start their search in the usual way and place an order in the last three months of their lease.
Social distancing and disrupted supply chains from manufacturers mean factories are producing fewer cars than usual which will result in a shortfall of new car supply in the near future. It’s possible that deliveries of some new cars will be delayed. Others may simply not be available for the foreseeable future. And prices of other cars may, sadly, have to rise and this is likely to continue over the coming months. For these reasons you may want to consider choosing and ordering your next car now, rather than extending your lease.
