[EXPOSED] Courtesy Delivery Scam Involving A C8 Corvette Takes Place In Houston Dealership!

We are aware of courtesy deliveries. You order a particular car from one dealership (most probably from a faraway location), then once the car is built it is delivered to another dealership closer to home. That’s where you are going to pick up the vehicle. Basically, dealership B is doing a favor for dealership A by delivering the ordered unit. 

Well, that sounds simple, right? But the thing is, courtesy deliveries are prone to scams and flaws. It removes the “sense of control” from the customer and transfers it to the dealership that receives the ordered vehicle.

A recent courtesy delivery scam was posted on Facebook. A guy named James Lapeyrouse asked the guidance of the C8 Corvette Owners (And Friends) community regarding his friend’s ordered car. Here is the content he posted. I suggest that you read this one since it will help you avoid such a scam in the future.

“She ordered her C8 from a BIL’s dealership in CA; however, it was courtesy delivered to Sterling McCall Chevrolet in Houston off of I-45 North.  Since the concierge told her it was shipped, she signed all contracts with her BIL’s dealership in CA.  I bet you know where this is going already,” he stated.  

“Instead of calling my friend to tell her that HER C8 was delivered, Sterling McCall Chevrolet sold it to someone else.  Remember she’s already signed a contract w that particular C8 & VIN,” he continued.  

“She went to Sterling McCall Chevrolet today to talk to them to figure out what happened. The GM & GSM refused to talk to her for whatever BS reason. They even had paperwork that showed the car delivered was ordered by her and delivered for her.  The salesman even gave her pics of her car. Theoretically, the person Sterling McCall Chevrolet sold her C8 to could never get the car titled since the dealership in CA has the manufacturer’s title.  What are the chances that the person returns the car?”

In a nutshell, James’s friend bought a car from a dealership in California but had it courtesy delivered to Sterling McCall Chevrolet, located in Houston. The thing is, Sterling McCall did not deliver the car to her. Instead, they sold the Corvette to someone else, which is downright absurd. GM and GSM did not reply to her inquiries. Instead, they gave her paperwork showing that the car was delivered to her already.

But even if they sold it to someone else, that buyer will not get it titled. After all, the dealership in California has its manufacturer’s title, and it can never be given to that buyer. 

And look, that dealership is even hard-selling the C8 Corvette!

This is one example of the crazy cases that can happen when you decide on a courtesy delivery. As Chevy Dude recommended, one should not take this approach. Instead, you should buy the vehicle directly from the dealership and have it shipped. Alternatively, you can also take the National Corvette Museum RC8 Delivery program.
