How Long Does it Take to Get a Factory Order from a Dealership?

Getting our hands on new vehicles to sell has been an ongoing issue for quite a while as the industry continues to get back on track from production issues stemming from the pandemic. However, under no circumstances does that also mean Gananoque Chevrolet customers have no way to find the exact make and model they want that is also equipped with every desired feature. The good news is that we can help customers make a factory order directly from a GM manufacturer. The less good news is that it can take a month or more for your vehicle to arrive. Let’s take a closer look at what the factory ordering process looks like and some of your available options.

How do You Make a Factory Order?

Ordering a vehicle from Chevrolet, GMC or Buick isn’t all that different from buying a vehicle from us the more traditional way. Buyers will still need to start by analyzing their needs and getting a budget together before picking out the make and model that will work best for them. In fact, you can use one of the build and price tools from any of the three automakers to make every important decision — all from the comfort of your home. When all of the important choices are made, bring that information into the Gananoque Chevrolet showroom.

One of our product experts will help you place the order and walk you through the financing process that goes with making a factory order. All in all, it’s a very simple process, all things considered. When your order arrives, we’ll contact you via your preferred method.

Alternatives to Making a Factory Order at Gananoque Chevrolet

If you’re in a position where you can’t or don’t want to wait for a factory order to be delivered, there are some alternatives. 

  • Be a little flexible: Gananoque Chevrolet has a pretty diverse inventory, considering market conditions. We may have a vehicle that matches the make and model you’re looking for but may lack some of the bells and whistles. If you can compromise on some things, you could go home with a new truck or SUV, today.
  • Consider a pre-owned model: Unless a particular model has been redesigned, there are generally several similarities between the new model year and last year’s. We may have something that fits the bill in our pre-owned vehicle inventory, or we may be able to reach out to our industry partners to find it. 

How Can You Make Buying a Car Easier?

To be sure, there is a lot that goes into buying a new (or used) vehicle. A fair amount of information needs to be collected, and the process can take a bit of time. However, our team recommends that you bring a few necessary items with you to make the buying (or leasing) process just a little bit quicker, including:

  • A solid picture of your monthly budget
  • Driver’s license
  • A list of vehicles you want to take a closer look at or test drive

We understand that buying a new car can feel overwhelming very quickly. Our team is well versed in making everything go as smoothly as possible. If you have additional questions, make an appointment with one of our product experts.
