Introducing Ford to Door Service!
A Better Way to Buy Your New Ford! Introducing our Jack Schmitt Ford “Ford to Door” Service! We will deliver your New Ford Vehicle to your Home or Office Anywhere in the State of Illinois!
What is “Ford to Door”?
In short, Ford to Door is our response to some of the ways the world changed during the 2020 pandemic. Like a lot of businesses, our company had to adapt to the changes in our client’s lives. More and more we have had requests to conduct business offsite and to make the process of buying a new vehicle less time-consuming for all. In 2020 we did more remote and home deliveries in one year than we had in the last ten years combined. Our customers started to use our online “Jack Schmitt Ford Express Checkout” to calculate payments and to select vehicles that are right for them. More people are working from home than ever and trying to avoid unnecessary trips.

What is required of me in order to buy my next vehicle using “Ford to Door”?
Our “Ford to Door” service is a better way to buy your next vehicle. All final details and terms on the deal will be set and agreed to over the computer. Most form signatures can even be collected prior to delivery leaving only a few items to be handled at delivery. We offer a virtual meeting similar to a Zoom or GoTo Meeting where our staff can meet with you using video to review all of the final paperwork and details of your purchase and answer any questions prior to the delivery. We will then schedule the delivery of your vehicle to your home or office at the soonest available and mutually agreed to date and time. Our team will come to you and review the Ford delivery checklist- making sure they go over any questions you might have on your new Ford and setting up all of your technology the way you would like it. Our staff will use full Covid precautions when the delivery takes place including sterilizing measures inside of the vehicle, and wearing a mask.
At delivery there will only be a few signatures to collect. An inspection of your trade in will take place on the day of delivery and prior to signing final documents. While there is rarely any issue, we do reserve the right to alter or cancel our deal if any conditional items or damage come forth that were not disclosed prior to the delivery date.
Can I Buy a Used Vehicle Through “Ford to Door”?
At this time we are only offering our “Ford to Door” service on new Ford vehicles and Ford Executive Courtesy Inventory. The reason for this is that these vehicles are all in mint or near mint condition and a new vehicle is just that, “a new vehicle”. Our pre-owned inventory is of the highest quality and highest conditioning standards anywhere, but they are not “brand new”. We strongly encourage that the condition of a pre-owned vehicle needs to be assessed by the client prior to making a final decision to purchase. They all have unique characteristics and flaws that are considered when making our vehicles ready for sale and for setting appropriate pricing. When we study the successes and failures of retailers selling pre-owned vehicles online, most of the failures and negative reviews are due to the customer finding a flaw on the vehicle that was not disclosed before the vehicle was purchased. These companies are popular right now, but an alarming number of people who have bought pre-owned vehicles this way are unhappy and say they would not repeat the process.
We are proud of our pre-owned selection and we are happy to send you video, photos, Carfax, and any information you might need to help determine if the vehicle is right for you, and under certain circumstances we have done home delivery on used vehicles in the past. We frequently have people fly from out of state to visit our dealership because of our selection and our aggressive pricing structure. But we encourage everyone to visit and test drive our vehicles wherever possible to make sure that the vehicle is right for you.
There is no second-guessing that a new vehicle is a new vehicle. But each pre-owned vehicle is a little different.
Can I test drive my new Ford at home prior to making the purchase?
At this time we are only offering at-home test drives in our immediate trade area (within about a 25 mile radius of the dealership) and only in the state of Illinois. There are also restrictions on the dates and times that we have staffing available to provide this service. “Ford to Door” is for our clients who know what they want and just want the process of acquiring it to be easy. All of our customers are welcome to use our Jack Schmitt Ford Express Checkout to start your deal and then decide if they want to visit the dealership, request an at home test drive, or complete a “Ford to Door” deal and schedule delivery.
