Question on doing pickup a few days earlier?

So I have an ED on 13 June and I am working in Egypt on rotation with my plan to go direct from Cairo to Munich via FRA and pickup.
I work out in the desert but due to some security changes I am currently working in Cairo which is difficult from a work perspective.

Anyway, long story short there is a possibility that I will be sent home early - maybe up to a week so wondering whether anyone knows of cases where the delivery was able to be re-scheduled 3 or 4 days earlier?
I have a Monday pickup but am thinking I may be able to get over to pickup on the Thursday.
I would assume the car will be built by then. It is in 150 at the moment.

Contact your SA or ED directly 1 (800) 932-0831. (I recommend calling ED directly, have your production# handy). They can tell you if there is availability. It's not a matter of your car being ready but whether there is an open delivery slot at the Welt. Cars are typically not brought to the Welt until day before delivery so there is storage logistics too. If they can work it out they will, but this is getting into peak season when the Welt is typically fully booked.

Thanks for that.
I am already just doing an abbreviated delivery so not too worried about the full deal - just grab the keys and get going so that might help if it becomes an option.
