How Do You Make a Factory Order at a Dealership?

The automotive industry is currently in the midst of one of its biggest challenges in quite some time. Supply chain issues have made getting new vehicles from the factory to the showroom difficult. Even the factories are operating at lower capacities due to various parts shortages. If you’ve driven around the area, you’ve probably noticed some additional space on various dealership lots. Inventory shortages are slowly approaching normal, but all manufacturers still have a lot of work to do. If you’re willing to be patient, you can still get the exact vehicle you want when you place an order through Budds’ Chev directly with the factory. Let’s take a closer look at some helpful information.

Where Do Factory Orders Start?

Someone who might end up ordering their next new vehicle directly from the factory is going to start the process the same way as buying traditionally from a dealership. The buyer will still go through the normal research process to pick out the vehicle they want to buy, and they’ll still need to get ready to apply for financing. In fact, it’s very helpful if the buyer is pre-approved for credit before they come to the dealership. The process starts to diverge from the normal path when the buyer comes into the Budds’ Chev showroom.

  • Take A Look Around: When you’re greeted by one of our product experts, let them know what you’re looking for. New inventory arrives almost weekly, so your perfect ride could already be available.
  • Get to Work: A Budds’ Chev product expert will help you pick out the features and equipment you want to be included with your vehicle. You can use our build and price tools for Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles from the comfort of home. That page can be printed and brought into the dealership when you’re done.
  • Close The Deal: Once you have run through the options and the order is placed, you’ll need to finish the transaction by signing paperwork and possibly putting down a deposit.

Can You Do a Trade-In With a Factory Car Order?

When a customer buys a vehicle directly out of the Budds’ Chev showroom, the great majority of them employ their current vehicle as a trade-in to help defray some of the cost. If you’re ordering your new Chevrolet, Buick or GMC truck or SUV directly from General Motors through us, you can do the same thing. Because it will likely be several weeks to a few months for your vehicle to arrive at Budds’ Chev, you can keep your vehicle in the meantime and go through the trade-in appraisal process before you take your new vehicle home.

Between the time when you place your factory order and pick it up, you’ll want to get your trade-in ready by fixing small issues, getting it detailed and compiling maintenance records.
