hi all , Im supposedly the proud keeper of a new seat Alteca
It’s my first every motability car
However , didn’t think things through in arranging to pick it up on Friday 13th…
The dealer had been helpful in sourcing a car for us , motability chipped in with a grant and all was going swimmingly.
only issue I had during the ordering process was , as my photocard for driving had expired and I’m waiting for a new one to arrive , I can’t be put on the motability insurance .
even though I can rent a van , be put on the dealers insurance for courtesy car ( more of that later ) rsa won’t let me on their insurance until I have new one in my paw .
I tried a bit of haggling on the AP , showing the seat offer on this forum but .. er no !
So wife and I rocked up ( well I hobbled ) to the dealer to pick the car up , just under 3 weeks from ordering to collection .
went in , had the unveiling , I looked around the car for damage etc .
it was great !!!
wife had instructions on controls etc
I put my pin in , dealer gave me keys and insurance firms etc and then went oopsy , we have an issue . It turns out that my car had been wrongly registered . In fact , it wasn’t due to be registered for another week 😱
so I now have a live contract for a car I havnt got and can’t drive …
