When will my new car be delivered? [COVID-19]

When will my new car be delivered? [COVID-19]

If you ordered your new car before the Coronavirus lockdown, you might be wondering what will happen next. 

Most car factories were shut down in March, causing huge delays in the production of new cars across the globe. 

Take a look at the scenarios below to find out what to do next.

My new car hadn't been built yet

If you ordered your car right before lockdown, it's unlikely it would have made it out of the factory.

The current estimations are that there could be a possible 3-4 month delay on new cars coming from the factory.

We hope to have the wait times confirmed by manufacturers as they begin to reopen, so we can inform you as soon as we know.

If you were getting close to your new car handover date, it's likely that your car would have been on its way to the dealership already. 

When the dealerships are able to re-open, we will be in touch to let you know when we can expect the car to arrive and arrange a safe handover.

We are currently unable to handover vehicles while we are closed, but we will be in touch as soon as we can.

I was just about to order a new car

If you were getting ready to order a new car, but hadn't managed to do it yet, then it's likely you will be subject to delay as the factories try to catch up with the backlog.

The sooner you can place your order, the more chance you will have of it arriving when you need it to.
