  • VT Vehicle Appraisal Question

    Hi all,

    I have started the vt process with Retail Money LTD (Ratesetter). They called an advised me I need to fill out a vehicle appaisal form and take pictures of damage and scuffs and e-sign it. This is done through a website called vt-validate.co.uk.

    My vehicle is in pretty good condition with the exception of alloy corrosion which was present when I purchased the car so I'm not too concerned about there being too much damage.

    My question is should I complete this form/questionnaire or not?

    Edit: They have also advised me I only have 7 days to complete this which I found a little strange.

    So you wrote the VT letter to them?* The contract is now ended.* You now contact them and tell them to pickup the car.

      Hi Ostell, I emailed them with the template from here and advised them to contact me within 14 days to collect the vehicle. They responded with a phone call trying to persuade me to pursue other avenue of which I refused, then they advised me to fill this thing out.

        I'm far from the expert on this so the real experts will come back in.* The contract is ended, they have to pick the car up.

            It's not your duty to do the appraisal really, but that's down to you. There's no obligation and I suggest you read the VT Guide which explains all of this.

              Thanks R0b, I have read the guide. I had a quick look at the self appraisal and I think it's best I don't do it. The website they have given me to complete it on is asking me to confirm all kinds of thing and requires a signature to complete it. Obviously I don't want to agree to pay them anything extra.

              the link to the appraisal expires in 6 days and I gave them 14 day notice to collect 2 days ago. In your opinion am I better to email them and explain I'm not going to do it or wait the 14 days and see what happens?

              Thanks

                So politely respond to them and say you don't accept some of the statements you have to agree to as part of the appraisal so they will need to collect and do their own.
