Collecting Your Car

We’ve made the process of collecting your car as easy and exciting as possible

Giving You Peace of Mind

The Portage Team are dedicated to giving you a great driveway experience. Before you arrive to collect your car, we’ll carry out a final pre-delivery inspection, giving you that added peace of mind before you drive away in your new car. 

We're Here To Help

Our team will do everything they can to make sure that at every point in your car buying experience we are offering you transparent information about your choice of car, professional and friendly advice and a swift and efficient service.

Portage Collection Centre

To keep your waiting time to a minimum, you’ll be allocated a collections appointment to pick up and collect your new car. We ask that you allocate an hour in your diary for this appointment so that we can ensure all the documentation has been completed and that you can safely drive away happy

What to expect at your Car Collections Appointment

Your Documentation

On the day of your collections appointment you’ll need to come prepared with all your documentation otherwise we can’t transfer the car into your name. See below as to what to bring with you.

Your Collection Appointment

At the time of your appointment head to our collection Centre just behind Sales Area A. We’ll aim to serve you in no more than 10 minutes, but please do allow an hour to finalise your car purchase.

Transferring Ownership

Transferring ownership to you is the most important part. We’ll give you all the relevant documents including your V5 (log book), service history, MOT certificate (where required). We’ll complete all documents quickly and efficiently.

Driveway Happy

Once you have settled your outstanding balance we’ll hand you the keys so you can drive away happy in your new car. At Cargiant, it’s as simple as that.

Documents to Bring with You

Your ID

Please remember to bring the following documents with you. Without them we won’t be able to transfer the car and release the vehicle to you:

  • Your valid NZ photo driving licence or your current passport
  • Two documents proving your current address dated within the last 3 months, for example a bank statement, council tax statement or any other utility bill.

Please Note: We do not accept mobile phone bills as proof of address.
