A. We ask that customers try to give us at least a week, but that not always the case. So here are a few facts. Over 95% of our customers' vehicles are scheduled within 1-3 days of them placing the order. Over 90% are picked up and delivered within a week with the exception of coast to coast shipping. Coast to coast shipping generally takes 7-10 days to deliver once picked up. Shipping to rural towns off the interstate can affect shipping time. Therefore, you should plan accordingly.
