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.

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

Drive away Insurance

With so much to sort out when you are buying a car, it’s great to know that you don’t need to worry about arranging insurance pre your visit. We partner with Tempcover* who can give you 5 days cover for a small fee, leaving you time to make your own arrangements.

 Tempcover is a trusted provider in the industry so all you have to think about is driving your new car home.

When you are ready to purchase you can pay by:

    • Pre-Arranged Car Finance
    • By Cash
    • Online transfer

Unfortunately, we cannot accept Building Society Cheques or credit card payments towards the purchase of your car. However, credit cards are accepted for additional products i.e. Mechanical Breakdown Insurance and Supagard Vehicle Protection System
