Reasons why your build date may have moved
why has my build date moved
Your car is on order, and you have been given an estimated time of arrival but you’ve noticed that your build date has moved. There is always a chance that your build date will be moved. There are loads of things that can affect the build date of a vehicle. Sometimes it will be moved back, but there is a chance that it can also be moved forward. Either way, you’ll want to know why. At OSV we have a dedicated customer service team that are experts in the delivery process. So, we’ve written an article explaining what sort of things can affect delivery date, build date and reasons why your build date may have moved. How will I know if my build date has moved? It depends on your individual broker or dealership. Each company has a different way of doing things.

You might not even know your car has been delayed or is even going to arrive early until it either appears on your doorstep a week early, or doesn’t at all!

So, it’s always best to check. If you factory order your new car, then this means that the vehicle is not yet built...

Why won’t my vehicle broker give me a delivery date?

Why you should never be "promised" a delivery date
why havent I been promised a delivery date
Sometimes our customers ask us why we won't promise a delivery date for their vehicle. It's understandable. They've paid for something, they want to know when it's going to arrive at their door. However, we don't promise delivery dates. Because we don't make promises we can't keep. And it's the same for other trustworthy brokers or new car dealers. Anyone who values customer service will not promise a delivery date. And in this article we will explain why...
