Where is Car Delivered?

Where is Car Delivered?

I thought I read that Tesla will deliver my new car to my house. Is that true or do I have to pick it up at the store even though it is not a Service Center?

i believe they deliver the car to a service center. that's where i have to pick it up

If you live farther than 50 miles from a service center, then they will deliver it wherever you like. I picked mine up at a service center 30 miles from my house. Best drive home ever!

I live <5 miles from showroom and <10 miles from service center and was offered the option of either home or SC delivery in April. I opted for SC delivery as home delivery would mean car literally dropped off with no walk-through.

They delivered mine directly to my neighborhood.
I live 300 miles from nearest service center.
Truck driver worked indirectly for Tesla and was quite knowledgable.
I called my delivery specialist when my car arrived and got a phone "walk-through"

I'm pretty sure they still deliver to your house if you want. They prefer the service center pickup because it is easier and simpler (for them) - they are shifting A LOT of cars right now.

Mine was also delivered to my house, but I'm 260+ miles from the nearest SC in Bellevue. I could have gotten it a day earlier if I'd picked up at Bellevue, but would have had to charge in Ellensburg to be certain to make it home.

Mine was delivered to my house. I'm 20 miles from the service center.

I'm like nickjhowe - delivered to house on flatbed (no cover) about 30 miles from the factory.

Mine was delivered to my house as I am 250 miles from a Service Center. The delivery specialist spent three hours with me going over the car. It was the best car buying experience I have ever had.

Delivered to my home, > 250 from svc ctr/store.

Sorry, delivered in covered truck with two other Model S on board.

They used to offer home delivery to everyone, even if you live next door to the service center. It was a big part of their marketing, saying they deliver the car "anywhere that makes you smile." But earlier this year they stopped offering home delivery to people who live close to service centers.

The time period seems to be key. At current volumes, fewer seem to be going home. Here in Vancouver, pickup at the Powell St. Service Center seems to be standard now.

It could depend on what state you live in.

Mine was delivered to our summer home in Southwest Harbor, Maine, which is about 300 miles from the nearest Service Center in Watertown, Mass. Wonderful service -- and one day earlier than expected. Had an arrival party the next day!
