If I buy a car from a garage can they keep it there for me for a day or something? Thing is that i would plan on staying in a hotel after I’ve bought it and buy the insurance to start next day because insurance costs about £500 more to start it same day

Yes, if they've had their money, it costs them nothing to keep it in the compound overnight.

You could always get a days temporary insurance to get around that.

When I bought mine from a garage/dealership, they told me that it would be ready 2 days later. This is due to them agreeing carry out services for free, before they handed the car over to me, this included: valeting the car inside and out, filling the tank up to a 1/4, taxing the car for a year and carrying out a new MOT, so that I had a whole year before it needed redoing again, even though it had one the month before when they bought the car. So with me, I got plenty of notice to insure the car
