    what happens to wavs after the end of the contract?

    The title says it all. My next wav has been ordered.

    I'm just interested to know what Motability does with a 6 year old wav. Note, Motability gave me a 1 year extension.

    Now I know the old car will be taken away by the firm that is supplying my new vehicle. I also known Motability will pick up the vehicle from the converter but then what?

    There are no issues-I'm just interested.

    Thanks

    They usually go to British Car Auctions and in this case specialist dealers will pick them up for a few quid https://www.british-car-auctions.co....bility-Online/

    All cars will go to the above, and I'm sure the WAVs do too, although I could be wrong.

    By the look of it they end up on a popular auction site, 346 on offer ,some are on a 58 / 09 registration ,so they have just come off a 5 year contract.
