Nearly New WAVs

If you’re looking for a more affordable way to lease a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) through the Motability Scheme then a Nearly New WAV might be the right vehicle for you.

What is a Nearly New WAV?

Our Nearly New WAVs are WAVs that have been returned to us from another customer after less than three years. If you're looking for a more affordable way to lease a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle through the Motability Scheme or would prefer a three-year lease, then a Nearly New WAV might be the right vehicle for you.

Is a Nearly New WAV the right option?

Yes if:

  • One is available that suits your needs
  • You need to get a WAV quickly
  • You need a WAV but would like a lower Advance Payment compared to a new WAV
  • You’d like a shorter lease length.

However, there are a few things to consider:

  • Not all new WAVs are available as nearly new
  • There is a limited amount of stock available – suppliers will only have the vehicles that have been returned early
  • Although each Nearly New WAV is quality checked, you should expect some wear consistent with its age.

What's the difference between a new WAV and a Nearly New WAV?

Nearly New WAVs have the same worry-free leasing package as our new vehicles and, so that we can offer guaranteed quality, all Nearly New WAVs are carefully checked by a Motability Scheme-approved supplier.

There are a couple of key differences, which are highlighted in the table below.

What's the difference?

New WAV

Nearly New WAV

Lease length 5 years 3 years
Mileage allowance 100,000 60,000
Vehicle age Brand new Less than three years old
Delivery times On average 12–16 weeks A few weeks or less
Advance Payment Depends on the WAV Depends on the WAV but will be less than the equivalent new WAV

Price bands

Nearly New WAVs are split into three price bands based on the size, condition and age of the vehicle and of course which vehicle has been used for the conversion in the first place. Below are the Advance Payments for applications placed for a Nearly New WAV between 1 October and 31 December 2017.
