How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
It doesn't usually cost anything to hand back a mobility car. The best people to speak to is motability and they will tell him everything he needs to know.
Once the repairs are done then he will be able to contact motability to have the car returned.
He/she hasn't said how the damage was caused either.
OP you need to give the full picture.
If your uncle hands back the car, he might be charged up to £250 because it is before the end of his contract. However, Motability do not always charge. As the reason is having no named driver, he can ask them if they will waive the fee. They are usually very reasonable, and I would be surprised if he was charged.
Even if the excess is £300, and he is chargged to return the car, that still only comes to £550 - your figures add up to £600. Even that is not near £1000, so I'm not sure where that figure comes from.
I am guessing there is more to this story. Are you in receipt of carers allowance?
