Vehicle Delivery and Wait Times

Vehicle Delivery and Wait Times

We know you will want to drive your new vehicle straight out of the Toyota Store, but brand-new cars often require some time for delivery and preparation.

When will my vehicle arrive?

Your local Toyota Store will give you an estimated delivery time which should be stated in your order and agreement. Currently, average delivery times are between seven to eight months, with some more popular models taking a little longer. We'll try our absolute best to provide open and honest communication around time frames. However, if the unexpected does occur, your local Toyota Store will always keep you up to date.

Are there any ways to reduce the time frame?

Well, it depends if we have your new car in stock or if we need to get it ready. If your order is very specific, with a particular colour, accessories or extras, it will take a little longer to prepare. Need to get back into the driver's seat sooner? Your Toyota Store can make suggestions, such as navy instead of black. But it's your car, so it's your choice.

Why the wait?

Currently, most new vehicles coming into NZ are overseas factory orders due to huge demand. Delivery times are variable and include the time it takes for each car to be built, checked and delivered. We also need to ensure it’s in perfect condition when it arrives. Plus, border closures, delayed shipping and logistics issues are causing extra hold-ups. But we’re doing everything we can to get orders out ASAP.

Can I still get all the bells and whistles?

Yes of course. All our new cars require extensive checking, detailing, cleaning and the installation of any specialised software or electronic equipment. If you have ordered additional accessories, these will add a bit of extra time so the team can make sure they have been fitted correctly. But no matter how busy we are, you can rest assured that you'll always get exactly what your ordered.
