Default Drop Shipments to Southern California

Any dealers in Southern California willing to receive cars drop shipped from out of state dealers for a reasonable charge? Also any recommendations for dealers for service? Last time I did a drop ship was for my 2001 C5 and the receiving dealer no longer exists!

Just pickup the phone and call your local Chevy dealers. The one I am having delivered to is Guarantee Chevrolet in Santa Ana for $500 Selman Chevrolet wanted $1000 and most dealers I talked don't want to do it because they say it's a hassle and they have been burned in the past such as buyer pulling out and then that dealer ended up with shipping costs back to the east coast dealer.

Okay thanks. Am thinking of doing this with the upcoming Z06.. A bit worried if the average dealer will be able to do a good predelivery prep/ inspection on this car...not to mention subsequent service visits.

I've followed the Chevy dealers in OC on yelp and the reviews are disappointing in both sales and service. Not sure what I'm going to do when the time comes.

If you talk to large forum dealers, they normally can arrange it for you, so you don't have to deal with calling around. They have sent a ton out to CA, so get with them. Call MacMulkin.

Try Dellilo Chevrolet in Huntington Beach. I bought my C7 through MacMulkin and set up the courtesy delivery for $300.00 Ask for John Helkin. He'll set you up.

I would consider buying from Boardwalk in Redwood City, flying there and driving back.
