Changing Pick Up Time

Hi folks - I haven't been able to find any recent word on the Forum regarding this questions. Does anyone know if there is any way to change the Welt pick-up time that I've been assigned? Thanks much!

Yes. Simply ask you CA to make the request for you. You may not get the exact time, but likely close depending how far out your delivery is scheduled. I received a 14:00 time originally one closer to 9:00 to 9:30. I'm now confirmed for 9:40

They changed mine at the last minute when my flight was delayed. I emailed the Welt directly. I don't think you will have a problem getting it changed.

Got my sales guy to contact BMWNA and change the check in time. Didn't get what I wanted but better.

The two ways to change the time is through the dealer's CA or at the Welt. The morning I checked in, they asked if I wanted to change my delivery time earlier from late afternoon. They could have changed it to morning but I selected just after lunch.

I actually changed mine twice - once through my CA and once through the welt. Original time was 10am, changed to 5pm and then 240 on the day if delivery. Think it's only a problem if you go at really peak times

I called the ED dept and they were able to tell me in real time what slots were available. They were very nice and helpful.

I did my ED on a Tuesday in Feb. So there were less than half the maximum deliveries that day. I went in and since I had bought two cars' one for me and one for the better half we brought two of our friends From Munich. Our time was scheduled so we could get on the English plant tour but we asked if we could just do a German one since we really didn't feel like having to listen to some butchered English for 2 hours. They happily obliged and shifted our pickup time to later so we could get an earlier tour.

So if times are open they are probably happy to move it for you. Not like someone will just walk in and take a slot later in the day.

I changed it on my last ED. My Ca setup a 5pm delivery but I arrived to Welt from a flight around 11am. Therefore they offered to change it to move it up to 1pm.
