How Does Ordering a Car Work?

How does ordering a car work? The whole process is a lot of fun for Aurburndale drivers, and the hardest part is the wait! Here are the basic steps of how to order a car from the factory:

  • Go to the official GMC website to familiarize yourself with the different models, trims, and features available. You can either create a list of your wants and needs, or use the Build and Price feature to create your own ideal specs sheet. Bring the sheet with you to your appointment at Kelley Buick GMC, Inc..
  • Stop by Bartow and let us know that you’re ready to build your vehicle. You’ll be paired with a sales representative who can help you finalize your design and make suggestions if wanted. Your representative will know the ins and outs of the GMC lineup, ensuring that you won’t miss a thing while putting in your order.
  • If you’d like some inspiration during the design process, we can take you on a test drive in the model of your choice or show you some real-life examples of the different features available.
  • Once you’ve signed off on your custom design, we’ll send out the paperwork and all you have to do is wait! We’ll give you updates the second that we get them, and you’ll be first to take a spin in your new car.

When Will I Get My Car?

How long does it take to order a car? While you can place your order in any afternoon, the manufacturing process itself is far slower than it was in pre-COVID times. Given manufacturing delays, now the timeline for a custom car is between 10 to 12 weeks. If you’re willing to wait, you’ll be rewarded with your very own one-of-a-kind creation with zero miles on the odometer!
