How to Pre-Order Your Ford

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Models

If you’ve had your sights set on a new Ford, visited your local dealership, and found that that model isn’t available, you’re not alone. Due to the global chip shortage, while demand may be high, supply is extremely low. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re totally out of luck when it comes to driving home in your dream Ford.



Rather than waiting for a Ford to arrive at your local Highland dealership, you can order your vehicle straight from the factory. Read this guide by the experts at Webb Ford to learn how to custom order a Ford and why you should choose this option.

Why Should You Pre-Order Your Vehicle?

Pre-ordering is a popular option for many Munster shoppers because they reserve a spot for themselves, and once the product becomes available, they’ll be one of the first to get it. You may be wondering, “What’s the difference between reserving a vehicle vs. pre-ordering a vehicle?” When you reserve a Ford, it doesn’t guarantee that you’re going to get that model. Although, if you choose to reserve a vehicle, it puts you ahead of shoppers who didn’t pre-order.

How to Custom Order a Ford

You’ve decided that custom ordering a Ford is the right move for you, but how does this process work. When you work with Webb Ford, you’ll need to complete the “Start Your Custom Order” form and include your vehicle preferences in the comments section. Once you submit the form, one of our sales representatives will be in touch with you to verify your vehicle choice, explore potential incoming stock, and submit your order to Ford.

How Long Does it Take to Receive Your Custom Ordered Ford?

Griffith shoppers often want to know how long it will take for their custom Ford to be delivered. Ultimately, this timeline will vary by the Ford model that you’re having built. Although, once your vehicle is ordered and assigned a VIN, you can start tracking it via the vehicle order tracking site.
