Our Customer Stories

Helen's Story

Helen Robinson, a Motability customer since 1979, calls the Motability car she received through Bristol Street Motors a "lifeline". With her adapted Motability car, Helen can now get to work and social events without worry. It's not just the car though, as Helen says the personal touch, advice, and hard work of the Bristol Street Motors team means that she'll "never leave Bristol Street Motors" to look for a new Motability car.
