What Is Automobile Pre-Ordering?

Pre-ordering a car means placing an order ahead of its market release schedule, ensuring you get the exact one you want in terms of trim level, color, features, and more. This way of buying has become more relevant in the wake of limited vehicle supply. Unlike traditional methods of buying a new car, where you’re left with what’s unsold after others have pre-ordered, the #1 Cochran Pre-Order form lets you build your way up to a completed model, starting with trim levels before moving on to optional packages and other finishing details.

When you pre-order a Nissan, GMC, Buick, or Chevy model from #1 Cochran, we take your order and reserve it with the dealer. The car is created, shipped from the manufacturer, and transported to our dealership. We’ll keep it a short time to let you come by and drive it home, or you could have it delivered to a place of your choice. Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill out the form on this page to schedule an appointment with a product specialist. We’ll call you to confirm.
  2. During your appointment, we’ll go over all the options with you and answer any questions you may have.
  3. We’ll also inspect the car you’re trading in during this meeting, if applicable.
  4. When your pre-order is ready to be secured, you’ll need to provide a $1,000 security deposit.
  5. Check this page again over the following days or weeks. Please remember that unreleased models or those with announced production delays will need time to become available.

Along with updates from this page, we’ll also contact you directly when your car is ready. Feel free to place pre-orders for a new Nissan, Buick, GMC, or Chevy vehicle with #1 Cochran in Youngstown, Ohio.

Please keep in mind that trade-ins will have a final inspection to confirm the condition, adjusting the price for any notable discrepancies.

What Is Causing the Car Shortage?

Although #1 Cochran always carries a thorough inventory of new and used cars, trucks, & SUVs, drivers who have shopped around for cars many times will notice that the current market has fewer available models than there used to be. There are a few reasons for the inventory shortages, but the biggest is production. Put simply, the economy is still in the last stages of recovery from the lockdowns.

The reason fewer cars are available is that manufacturers chose to make less. They made orders for lower numbers of parts as the Covid-19 pandemic was forcing more and more lockdowns and closures. Because no one was going outside or traveling, manufacturers knew that fewer people would want to buy cars. However, as things got better and lockdowns ceased, every major automaker now wants to scale back up to normal.

However, the United States doesn’t have many facilities to produce its own microprocessors, which are the plastic and metal chips that power modern computers. This is the most important part shortage that is limiting car availability. Modern cars all use computers for many systems, from general operation to safety features and infotainment screens. These computers need microprocessors, but the facilities used to produce them in the United States can’t handle all the demand at once.

As for when things will level out and the market will fill up again, it’s difficult to say. Predictions made in January suggested that the microchip shortage would improve in the first half of the year. However, most expert predictions now suggest that things are more likely to go back to normal at the end of 2022 or early 2023.

Is Pre-Ordering Getting More Popular?

Inventory shortages and driver preferences are leading to more and more people choosing to pre-order their cars. During the pandemic, when many people had no choice but to order a car online in this way, they enjoyed the simplicity and the chance to consider different options. Compared to browsing long rows of vehicles at your average dealership, being able to pre-select and customize a purchase feels informative and empowering.
