How to Custom Order a New Vehicle at Our Itasca Ford Dealership
We’ll Help You with Your Ford Build & Price So You Get Exactly What You Want
Not finding the perfect vehicle for you at our Itasca Ford dealership? It’s not an uncommon experience, as new and used cars in our inventory are snatched up as quickly as we list them. And it’s happening everywhere, not just at our dealership.
That’s why many car buyers are opting to order a new Ford straight from the factory. It’s actually a really simple process that our personal shoppers can help walk you through. We’ll show you how.
The Ford Build & Price Online Process
Special-ordering a new Ford is easy. To get started, visit our website, ZeckFordTexas.com. Then, follow these simple steps:
1. Visit our custom-order webpage.
2. Click “Build My Ford.” This will take you to the Vehicle Builder page.
3. Select the Ford model you’re interested in ordering. Only vehicles currently eligible for custom order will show up in the list. Not all vehicles can be custom ordered at any given time.
4. Select the body style, trim, powertrain, color, and packages you want included on your custom-order Ford.
5. At the summary page, you’ll receive an estimate for the cost to purchase your new Ford car, truck, or SUV.
6. Select “Request a Quote” to receive an exact cost for your vehicle, or select “Schedule an Appointment” to meet with a personal shopper at Zeck Ford Texas to learn more about building your own Ford. Alternatively, click “Search Current Inventory” to see if we have your ideal vehicle in stock.
What Happens After I Custom Order a Ford Through My Itasca Ford Dealership?
If you choose to build your own Ford with our help, you’ll need only pay a deposit on the vehicle for Ford Motor Company to begin production. Once production is complete, Ford will deliver your new vehicle to our dealership, where you’ll complete your purchase, including securing financing for an auto loan and drive away!
In a perfect situation, you can expect to receive your vehicle within 10 weeks of ordering. However, the current state of auto manufacturing, particularly with the chip shortage you’ve heard so much about, has that timeline extended. For a better estimate of arrival, you’ll want to track your order on the Ford website, or talk to your personal shopper at Zeck Ford Texas.
What If I Need to Cancel My Order?
There’s a chance that, after you factory order a Ford, you find the perfect vehicle already at our Itasca Ford dealership, or perhaps your circumstances change.
You can generally cancel a factory order with no repercussions and get your deposit back. The special ordering process is very low risk in this way. However, once you cancel an order, it is canceled permanently, so if you want to re-order at a later date, you must start the process all over again.
Are There Any Special Fees for Ordering a New Ford?
When you place your order for your new Ford, you’ll need to pay a deposit, which we’ve already covered. But when you complete your purchase, you’ll also need to pay a shipping fee, the cost to have your vehicle delivered to you or your local dealership for pick-up. This is called a “destination charge.”
The destination charge varies, but you receive information on the specific charge before you submit your order. It’s never kept a secret, and it can be rolled into your auto financing through Zeck Ford Texas in Itasca.
