How much is the car worth? if its not alot they wont be interested and will leave it to rot.

They will also leave it to rot if it is still in your name

Has the registered owner been changed as Welcome just move vehicle's they don't register them!!

So i have to wonder whos the registered owner now.??

 

Please call DVLA as soon as possible.

 

If your name is still registered and the car is a runner, and you have the finalisation document that your account is closed, then offer them a further £50 if you think you could sell it on or use it agian.

 

Sometimes accounts are not closed on VT and you get a nasty shock in 12 months, always get closure and a hand over letter even if they don't take the car, the account managers have little to do with the ownership it is all done at head office.

 

When you VT'd you could of also offered a minimal amount many cars are not worth thier time to collect and its easier and cheaper to write the remaining balance off with a small payment.

Once you VT the car they have usually covered all teh money lent and more, so they have no actuall loss anyway.

 

If your account had balance outstanding worth collecting and teh account manager couldn't close it then he would have collected and sold it.

 

unless as advised above he has not completed the VT.

 

Hope this helps:)

Thanks for your reply blue lagoon,

I have no written proof or otherwise from welcome regarding my vt'ing of car and had been wondering how to approach this, also i had made the account manager come up to see the car which he said they wouldn't rush to pick the car up if at all!

I rang the DVLA to transfer the ownership over to welcome and sent off the form to the DVLA

the car is about a thousand pounds worth but needs some money spent on it to get it going again

what do i do now to keep the car if i can?

thanks guys
