    Picked up my Focus Vignale Estate on 21st December. GCB cheque arrived yesterday. I consider that to be good service.

    Just asking if anyone knows, at the end of your 3 years you hand the car back and don’t renew, do you still get the good condition bonus and where do you hand the car back in?

    Yes

    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    Yes you still get the GCB and you hand the car back to the supply garage, if for some reason you have moved away then it would be the garage you have it’s service and the MoT done, in some circumstances they will arrange to have the vehicle picked up or yourself dropped back home if the logistics of getting back is required.

    Thanks JS, not due to end for about a year but good to know as I will probably leave the scheme and buy something cheap (well, cheaper than the huge ap’s being asked anyway).

    If after 2 years  8 months your pip is not renewed and therefore car has to be handed back earlier, do you lose the GCB as a result? For sake of s couple of months through no fault  of your own.

    I’m not 100% on PiPs rules but I’m sure I’ve read somewhere here you depending on when you joined the scheme,  there is a transitioning period and payments available, and in the event of it being earlier than the 3 years in most cases Motability usually work payments out on a pro rata basis, but I would advise to check with motability on that to be sure.

    Transitional support package only available for those moving off DLA and not being eligible for PIP. I.e. not for people who stop receiving PIP. You will not receive Good Condition Bonus, but will receive pro rata refund on Advance Payment.

    With the transitional support package I could have kept my car a few months longer (in lieu of £1,500 support payment) which would have meant I’d had the car for just over 3 years, yet I still would not be eligible for Good Condition bonus.

    Hi we’re due to hand our car back on the 15th May it has been well taken car of but today the girl across the road bumped it when she was reversing and now there’s a tiny crack at the front should I get it repaired or just leave it. What will happen with the GCB if put through insurance or left

    Sharon the obvious answer is to get her insurance to get it fixed, you could take a chance that the guy checking it for Motability does not see the crack. If it is as small as you say its likely to be missed or disregarded but why take the chance when its not your fault.

    Chances are you won’t get an appointment for it to be fixed by 15th May, if you live close to the dealer you will be handing Car over too then maybe pop in and get them to advice if they will tick the good condition box, if they say no then go through the insurance (it won’t effect your payment) although there is an access to pay which would have to be claimed back from the others insurance, but if they say it’s fine then your neighbourly relations stay intact. Scraps and bumps are fine and shouldn’t effect the good condition payment

    Some, probably drunk person,dented our car over the Easter weekend while it was parked outside the house.

    Its end of lease in July so am going to have to pay the £100 excess to get it repaired as its a very large dent and buckled the wing.

    Seems to be a thing in this day and age of parking sensors and can’t believe how many car’s I’ve witness being damaged by morons who can’t drive in confined car park spaces.

    Going back to the OP, I wonder Sharon how well you know or get on with your neighbour across the road as you could suggest a £500 retainer in view of losing your GCB or part of. Whatever you get in the way of GCB can be deducted from the £500 but this is where knowing neighbour comes in because there would no doubt be a degree of trust between you. It’s just a thought and knowing how most of us live these days neighbours are friendly but can you trust them or they you.

    Radiomark,

    My Kuga got a right good dent on a bollard in August (in front passenger door). I went on the RSA sight and put in the claim (with pic). They contacted me back saying didn’t need doing, it would be considered fair wear and tear! I asked if they were sure and they said yes, but if I didn’t like driving around with it looking like that then I could pay the excess and proceed.

    I said provided they put in writing that they considered it fair wear and tear then I didn’t mind it looking like it did! They emailed me a letter straight away.

    Not sure I’ll get the GCB (for first time ever) on this occasion but hey ho, swings and roundabouts.

    How much do they give you for the GCB? I never got one 20 years ago when I had my last car on the scheme.
