How Long Does It Take to Order a Car?

Couple Shopping Online on Couch
With the automotive inventory shortage, local dealerships don’t have as many vehicles in stock as they used to. If you can’t find your ideal model near Mclean, can you buy a car directly from the manufacturer? Yes, you can with a certified dealer’s help! But how long does it take to order a car? The time can vary depending on several factors like the make and model, but ordering a car from the factory will likely take about 6 to 8 weeks til it arrives at your dealership. If your order has to be imported, you can expect to wait a few months. Regardless, you should be mindful that it may take months until you can drive the car around Great Falls. If you’re still interested, find out how to order a car from the factory below.



How to Order a Car from the Factory?

Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner will guide you through the whole process, but if you’d like to see how it all works before factory ordering a car yourself, see the steps below:

  1. Get qualified for a loan with your choice of lender. This can be your bank, credit union, or another institution.
  2. Find a dealership that you want to work with. Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner is a prominent Vienna dealership that you should look into!
  3. Head over to the build tool from Mercedes-Benz and configure your ideal vehicle online. You can also use Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner’s tool and we can order the car for you!
  4. You will talk over the details with one of our salespeople in person, online, or over the phone before finalizing them. You can negotiate the prices at this point.
  5. You will also be offered financing plans from Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner and you are free to consider them if you’d like.
  6. Sign the paperwork and get copies. Make sure to sign the buyer’s order, and have the sales manager do the same.
  7. Pay your deposit. The amount of the deposit varies by brand but is usually $1,000 or less. If you do not pay a deposit, you haven’t truly reserved the vehicle. The dealer has simply ordered one with a plan to sell it to you later. Be sure to pay ASAP so that the car is reserved for you!
  8. Wait while your vehicle is being built and delivered. Mercedes-Benz of Tysons Corner will keep you up-to-date and let you know when it arrives at our dealership.
  9. Head on over and pick up your new vehicle!
