But what if you just don’t have a lot of time to do so? Or what if you live far away from the dealership of your choice? You might want to inquire about the dealership’s home delivery option.

Jumpstart the Purchasing Process: Apply for financing to fund your new Chevy

A growing trend

Per the Winston-Salem Journal, home delivery is a growing trend for consumers who want a more convenient way to retrieve their newly-purchased auto. More dealerships are starting to provide this off-site delivery service, to meet this demand. Since online financing and purchasing is already a thing, ordering a new vehicle from the comfort of your couch might soon be the new norm for car shopping.

How home delivery works

Home-delivery service differs from dealership to dealership. Though, it typically involves the following steps.

Once the dealership agrees to deliver the vehicle to your house, you usually have to fill out a credit application online. If you have an auto to trade in, a salesperson will usually gather information about it over the phone.

On the day of delivery, a salesperson (followed by an assistant driving a second car) will drive your new vehicle to your house. When the vehicle arrives, inspect it to verify that it is the correct year, make, and model that you paid for. Examine it to make sure there aren’t scratches or dents that occurred while the car was shipped to the dealership.

If everything looks good, sign the sales documents the sales rep brought with them to finalize the purchase. If you have a trade-in vehicle, usually the salesperson will inspect it at this time.
