Delivery Options

Getting your new Tesla delivered is a simple and touchless experience. With Tesla Tutorial videos available right on your touchscreen, you can learn about the features and functions of your car without ever leaving the driver’s seat. We will deliver your car via one of four delivery methods, pre-selected based on location and eligibility.

Pick-up from a Tesla location

Delivered to your location

Before taking delivery, make sure to download the Tesla app, which will pair with your new car on delivery day. Learn more about preparing for delivery.

Express Delivery

Take delivery with touchless pick-up of your car from a Tesla delivery location.

Arrive at your scheduled Tesla delivery location and be remotely routed to your new car. Your required documents will be waiting inside your car, ready to be signed. When you’re ready to get on the road, drive to the exit and return your completed documents. We will provide temporary registration and plates, depending on your state.

Explore the features of your car at your own pace via the in-car Tesla Tutorials and Owner’s Manual on the touchscreen. All tutorials can also be accessed from the settings menu in your Tesla app.

Express Delivery is now available at all Tesla delivery centers. Some states may vary based on signatory requirements.

Tesla Direct

A Tesla Advisor will safely hand off your car at a location of your choice.

With Tesla Direct, your car is brought directly to you by a Tesla Advisor at a location of your choice (home, workplace, etc). Once the car has arrived, you will sign your paperwork and be ready to drive within minutes. If you prefer, delivery paperwork can be left in the car for immediate signing and collected by the Tesla employee once completed. Tesla Direct is only available to customers within an approved distance of their local Tesla delivery center.

Tesla Direct is not yet available in Canada, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts or North Carolina; however, we are rapidly expanding the availability of Tesla Direct to additional states.

Tesla Direct Drop

A Tesla Advisor will deliver your car anywhere you choose – no interaction required.

Designed as a completely touchless delivery experience, we will drop your new car at a location of your choosing – typically a home or workplace – without any required interaction. Just complete all required paperwork, let us know where you’d like the car and we’ll drop it off and leave the car for you to unlock via the Tesla app. Please note that payment, paperwork and e-sign agreements must be completed in full prior to delivery, and you are required to send back any remaining physical paperwork in the car via a pre-paid shipping envelope within 24 hours. Trade-in and business-lending customers are not yet eligible for Tesla Direct Drop.

We are rapidly expanding the availability of this new delivery type to new states. Locations currently offering Direct Drop include:

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Hawaii
  • Indiana
  • Maryland
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Washington, DC

Carrier Direct

This fee-based option is available for most customers who live more than 220 miles from the nearest applicable Tesla delivery location and would prefer to have their car delivered to their home. These deliveries are performed by third-party carriers for a fixed fee based on your final delivery location. Speak with your Tesla Advisor if you would like to add this delivery option to your order. For fastest delivery, we recommend a touchless pick-up of your car from a Tesla delivery location.

Note: For Hawaii-outer-island deliveries, we will coordinate shipping to your preferred Hawaiian island through locally-approved shipping companies. The shipping company will deliver your Tesla directly to your island, and will connect with you directly for payment. Prices are set by the shipping provider and may vary.

Prior to receiving your car, we recommend watching the Tesla Tutorial videos and downloading the Tesla app.
