I was due to collect at West Drayton tomorrow. Disappointingly just received a phone call to inform me that the car is stuck in Southampton! Offered collection the following morning Friday instead. Cant see that much of a cleaning or inspection or charging job can be done by then. They clearly think we all need multiple disappointments!

Mine was taken off the transporter 30 minutes before I got there, and just given a wash. I don't think that is all that uncommon ... and hand-over-guy said failures are very rare (not the same as you finding something minor that would be sorted out at a scheduled service, as distinct from rejecting it)

Oh dear. I’m also due to collect at West Drayton tomorrow. Had you already received your car registration number?

Day before I think. That was then though, so should be a bit more organised now, but given how many they are handing over may not be much warning.

Insurance companies understand that new car plates are assigned shortly before hand over, and not on regular databases, so they should b happy with "short notice" (and should be happy to insure the VIN rather than the Plate as that is actually the car's mark and not easily changed, unlike the plate!)
