Salesman put in a "pick request" through VINView yesterday morning, to see if they can just go grab it. As of EOB yesterday, there was no response, but the request apparently was received as the sales manager got a call asking why there was a pick request for the car. Which is funny, because there's usually just one reason for that kind of request - the dealer wants
the car and doesn't want to wait.
I did some more research last night into VINView and that whole process, and it's interesting. According to the documentation, a dealer can request to pick up a vehicle that's been in 4B bayed status for at least 72 hours without movement, and the carrier/yard manager has 48 hours to respond to that request. They can accept it and schedule a time for the dealer to pick it up, or they can deny it, but they have to provide a reason for the denial. So I'm hoping
that we see some kind of update today, and will hopefully have our Bolt in our driveway by the end of this week.
