I wonder if delivery is quicker if you order from a North of England dealer?

I believe they still use Killingholme Docks near Immingham Docks on the Humber

Am sure Volvo Uk said mine was to come via Bristol but my dealer said my car came this route and again big delays there he told me… in fact he stated they were trying to acquire more space at imminghsm

When did you order?
25 October, and it was a stock car when I selected it, cancelled my original order which was going to take 30 weeks. I thought this meant I could get it in 4 weeks according to their own estimates.
So you're telling me a *stock car* is going to have taken them 4 months to get to you?!
Mine was a stock car. Ordered August it did arrive at dealers in December but as the part ex had changed so much it took till end of January to sort and take delivery. The delay of cars arriving is impacting on the valuation that was given at time of ordering. It seems some dealers will take the hit and some wont

ChrisLF wrote: Thu Feb 08, 2024 11:35 am We were wondering before if stock actually meant in stock? I cancelled and reordered (before the current delays) a car off the web-site indicating a 4 week delivery time and the car did arrive inline with that. But after ordering I received a notification from Volvo saying the car had been built as with my previous order. My feeling is that the cars on the web-site aren't actually in stock (unless cancelled orders?) but just cars further into the production process having being ordered by Volvo UK? Like dealers ordering for their stock before the agency model.

When I ordered there was quite a number of cars available with short delivery times. Last time I looked there weren't many cars available and delivery times were 13 weeks etc. which says to me that the cars aren't in this country even if built.

Just checked again and there's just 10 mild-hybrids available. One at 4 weeks, one at 5 weeks, one at 12 weeks and the others at 4 to 7 months.
Big delays then now… I looked last week and as you say not much choice at all. Not a good look for the agency model. But being Volvo… surely they have the resources to sort this mess

Got to say, it's not the fastest, it's not the best handling, nor the most comfortable car I've ever owned. But it's an excellent vehicle in all respects and I'm very pleased with my purchase and supplying dealer; Marshalls Grantham.
To anyone waiting for delivery I would say hold on if you can.

I'm sure Geely will intervene at some point and sort out the delivery issues
