Faster payments


BACs will have different (typically higher) limits but will take normally 3 days. Often needed to be done at bank, usually free or nominal cost.
SWIFT is pretty much instant but there will be a very early afternoon cutoff and will cost. Normally needs to be done in bank. So really only an option if you get caught up.

As well as splitting faster payments over multiple days, payments can be spread over multiple accounts too.

"Drafting contract" seems to be the way until they're looking for final payment and can set an actual date, at least that was what happened in my account.

I've had a text to say time to pay, make sure you do so before 7 days of collection... 7 days is Friday and my account still say 'drafting contract'

I'm working in Southampton 13th/14th, frustratingly I couldn't make the logistics of collecting the car while down there work, so have to wait until the Friday 😭
I hope to have the time to have a mooch around the port to see if I can spot my car......

Same. I couldn't get out of work on the Thursday, but I booked a hotel next to Brent Cross as I'm picking it up first thing Friday the 18th. Already decided I will have a look around the car park and see if I can find it the night before!! :) If I can, I'll do my external checklist at that point!! I'm dragging my fiancé over too, exactly one year before we get married... or at least at the moment, she's not had to spend the night with an over excited man child yet!

There won’t be any number plates on the cars at the port, you could see many of your spec, on of them will be yours by the end of the week tho, not long now!

So next dilemma, I had fully intended to get my car detailed and ceramic coated.. Good news is there is a great place that will do a top notch job just down the road from me! BUT it takes 2-3 days according to their website. I'm not sure I could cope with not being with my car that long having just got it!!! Maybe I'll wait for the buzz to die down a bit! haha

I had that dilema with my last car. Fortunately they provided an Abarth 595 competizione as a loaner which was great fun in the interim!

Just be mindful that if you do wait, try and avoid the temptation to clean it as the detailers will probably thank you for that,

Hmm ok, I'll drop them an email and see what they can do. Cheers.

Todays the day we have all been waiting a long time for, the ship of all ships is bringing our cars into Southampton late this evening 😀
Mine is due for delivery on the 16th. I just spoke to GB Delivery and they said I should be able to collect from Southampton on the 15th... Not worth it for an extra day.... 🤔

I just got a “please sign Tesla agreement” email, looks like it’s the PCP docs. I thought these get signed on collection day - did anyone else get something similar?

Yeah, I got mine on Monday, I just signed it and sent the copy. I saved a copy in case there are any issues and need a copy on delivery day.
