I'm scheduled to pick up my car at the factory on Monday. The Volvo documentation says I need to bring final payment receit with me when I take delivery of the car in Europe.<p>Is this receipt necessary? The only receipt I have is one of those handwritten paper receipts out of a receipt book. It says the make and model of the car, but doesn't have the VIN. I've talked to the dealer and they said they talked to Volvo and Volvo said I didn't need it. I've asked the dealer to put together an invoice for me.<p>I emailed the factory to set things up and they didn't say, "hi, please pay us first," so I'm guessing they think things are okay...<p>So do I need to bring proof of final payment? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

My dealer gave me a letter saying the car was "paid in full", but I was never asked to show it to them at the FDC.

Don't you worry. They know. You dealer collects money on behalf of VCNA and FDC and transfers money there ASAP.<p>But bring any evidence of payment with you, just in case of missing paperwork.<p>Most likely, though, you would not be asked. And hand written receipt is as good evidence as any.

You should have rec'd a confirmation pkg with your ordered vehicle and options itemized and totalled. Have your dealer stamp that order confirmation "Paid in Full'. That should suffice!

My experience was like the others...I took a handwritten receipt and didn't need it. I WAS asked for a copy of my social security card though.

Turns out all they wanted from me was my passport. I didn't need any other documentation.

Re: Urgentish question about pickup (asja)

May be they needed to confirm the SSN for the import paperwork.

Re: Urgentish question about pickup (universityvolvoOSD)

re: social Security card. I have the stub with the number on it, and passport and original birthcertificate and marriage license. Original ss card was stolen years ago and I have never replaced it. Will other documentation suffice ?

We were only asked for our passports. That was May '06.

Re: Urgentish question about pickup (William)

Thank you. I was planning on tears and hysteria as a last resort if needed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
