Tesla Delivery Day

Your Tesla delivery experience should be simple and easy. Before taking delivery, be sure you've taken all the necessary steps.

Prepare for Delivery

Review and Confirm Delivery
After placing your order, sign in to your Tesla Account to confirm your delivery details. Completion of these tasks will prioritize you to receive a VIN and is required to receive final contracts.

Your delivery details may include:

  • Delivery location
  • Registration
  • Trade-in
  • Payment method

Delivery Scheduling
Once your car is available, we will contact you to schedule a delivery appointment. Vehicle availability timing varies based on many factors, including production, logistics and timely completion of your delivery tasks. Once your VIN is available, it will be visible in your Tesla Account.

Pre-Delivery Documents and Final Payment
Before your delivery appointment, submit your final payment and necessary documents through your Tesla Account. If you are financing or leasing with Tesla, you must e-sign any required documents in your Tesla Account. These documents must also be present when you take delivery of your Tesla.

Note: Texas and Michigan customers are required to submit final payment prior to scheduling their delivery appointment due to state restrictions.

Your Tesla can charge anywhere — with standard mobile charging equipment and convenient access to the Tesla global charging network. Before taking delivery, learn more about installing home charging equipment and Supercharging.

Tesla App
Before your delivery appointment, download the Tesla app to access our video tutorials and support resources. Your Tesla will automatically pair to the app on delivery day.
