I've looked through the threads and the stickys, but don't think I've seen the answer to this question. I've called BMW NA in New Jersey several times and have been told that my car will be (or has been) released from the VPC to the trucking company on May 12. I'm told that the trucking then has 48 hours to pick it up. What does that mean? Does it mean that the trucking company has 48 hours from some particular time on May 12 to picks it up and start on its trip to the midwest with my car and other midwest EDs? Or, does it mean that the trucking company has 48 hours to take responsibility for it, then it sits under the aegis of the trucking company until the day that it has enough other cars to fill its carrier before starting on the trip. I'm really not getting any clear indication from my CA or BMW MA. Though, when I talked to my CA today he said that since it was released to the trucking on May 12 it should be here by May 24. This dealership doesn't do many EDs and I think they really don't know. However, if he is right then that really seems mindblowingly long. Any experiences and information is truly appreciated.
