What happens when you have your car collected

We’ll send you a reminder, by text or email, to confirm the collection date and time that we agreed with you.

On the collection day you’ll need to have a few things ready…

  • your ID
  • car keys
  • any documents you might have for the car
  • and don’t forget to remove any personal belongings and rubbish from your car

When we collect your car, we’ll help with the paperwork, and sort the payment. It couldn’t be easier!
