Your start of contract checklist

Congratulations on taking out a car finance contract with PSA Finance! We hope you enjoy your new vehicle.

Before you set off, we advise you complete the following checklist to avoid any future charges. When your contract comes to an end, you could incur extra costs for excess mileage or damage, or if certain items supplied with the car are missing.

On the day your car is collected, the agent will complete a condition report. It's important for you to be present, as you will be expected to read and sign the report.

To help you avoid additional charges, we've prepared this simple checklist of items you will be expected to return with the vehicle:

  • Master key and spare key
  • Fully complete service book (which must be stamped)
  • MOT certificate (all vehicles three years or older require at least two months cover or an abort charge of £135 may be levied)
  • Logbook (V5C document)

Remember, it's your contractual obligation to return these items with your car. We cannot accept them if they are returned after the vehicle.
