Nearly New WAVs

If you're looking for a more affordable way to lease a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle 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
