Family pet among top 10 items accidentally left behind by customers part-exchanging cars at Motorpoint!

A family pet is among the more unusual items accidently left behind by customers when part-exchanging their vehicle with Motorpoint. The revelation comes on the back of a huge influx of part-exchange vehicles at Motorpoint branches after they successfully re-opened all of their branches in England, Scotland and Wales on April 12.


A family pet was just one of the more unusual items accidentally left behind by customers in their eagerness to drive away in their new car from Motorpoint. And, in their excitement to drive away in their new vehicle as quickly as possible, a number of customers have inadvertently forgotten to empty their old vehicle of some of their most prized possessions.


While these have included the usual suspects such as house keys, parking permits, sunglasses, debit and credit cards as well as money and phone chargers, a number of more ‘unusual’ items have been left behind for staff to try and re-unite with their owners.

Nikki Bamford, Head of Customer Services at Motorpoint, explained: “We are all guilty of leaving things behind when we are in a rush, such as our phones, wallets and keys, so it’s certainly only natural that our customers do the same in the midst of their excitement and eagerness to drive away in their new car.


“We have however been left a little bit taken aback with some of the strange things that have been left in some of our customers old cars. Thankfully, we have been able to re-unite most items with their rightful, and in the case of the dog, relieved owners!”
