Vehicle Collection Checklist


Thank you for choosing Wilsons to purchase your car. To ensure a smooth handover of your vehicle please allow a good hour for collection in addition to making a note of the following:

1) Payment of vehicle

When paying the balance on your vehicle we accept the following forms of payment:

Debit/ Switch cards for any amount

Credit card (there is a 2.5% charge for amounts over £1000)

Bank transfer - bank details on request

Unfortunately, we can no longer accept cash payments or cheques.

2) Finance customers

If you're paying for your car by finance you will require the following documents:

Drivers licence (both the ID card and paper counterpart) or a passport

Two proofs of address e.g. current Utility Bill, Council tax or bank statements

If you do not have these documents please discuss with your sales representative before coming to collect your vehicle.

3) Part exchange customers

If you have a vehicle that you are part exchanging please bring with you the following:

V5 document/ Registration document

Current MOT (if applicable) and any previous MOTs

Service history

Any spare keys/ handbooks

4) Customers who need their vehicle taxed

If you want Wilsons to tax your vehicle you will need to ensure that we have your insurance cover note at least two days prior to the collection of your purchase.

From 27th July 2013 all new unregistered vehicles will have their tax discs dispatched centrally from the DVLA Swansea. Changed legislation allows vehicles to be used for 14 days from the date of registration without displaying a tax disc.

5) 7 days free insurance

If you're looking for temporary insurance for a quicker collection we can offer 7 days free insurance. A certificate of insurance will be emailed to your sales representative 48 hours before collection so your vehicle can be taxed. To arrange insurance please contact your sales representative.

6) Spare keys

Used cars are supplied with all available keys. We always try and obtain spare keys from the previous owner, however in some instances there are no spare keys and the car will only come with the one key.

7) Collection times

Collection times are Monday to Friday, 9:00am - 4:30pm. We don't do handover's on Saturday or Sunday. Please allow a good hour when collecting your car to ensure a smooth handover.
