Have Oliver delivered?


Recommended Posts

Word of slipping delivery dates has us concerned. We're both teachers with no flexibility in our vacation schedules. If our summer delivery date slips into the school year there's no way we can drive to TN, take delivery, and return to CT. Has anybody had their new Ollie delivered to their home state? If so, how did you arrange it, and what were the costs?

There have been a number of owners that have had their Ollies delivered.  Hopefully some of them will chime in here with their specific details.

In the meantime, I'd talk to my Oliver Sales agent and ask them about this possibility.

Good luck!

I sure hope that doesn't happen. I was a teacher, a long time ago. Summer is shorter for teachers than students,  for sure.

There's a lot of beautiful country between you and Hohenwald,  and it's a great trip. (I've done it. My college roommate,  and still my best friend, lives in CT.) Plus, the factory pickup can be so educational. 

Good to explore the options, but hope you'll get to make the trip yourselves.  What was your original pickup date?

There is a specific company they use I think it's Cowboy something. There is a guy from Washington/Oregon that purchased right before us that had his delivered and was very happy with the service. Maybe he will see your post.

Painted cowboy? Don't know if still the same, but here's a thread. 

Best to call your reo, obviously.  Everything changes over time.

I checked with the cost to tow it to Portland,  Oregon and it was something like $1.65 per mile which brought it to over $3000 if I recall.   I thought no thanks.

We're scheduled for July 26. School starts about a month later.
