I ordered a R1T in November 2020 as soon as you could use the online configurator. At the time I was told end of 2021 to expect delivery. The next update was you're delivery window is set for July-Sept. 2022. In June I called in and was told this was no longer true and that I would have to wait for an update. In that same month my truck of 16 years finally broke down. So I started borrowing vehicles from friends hoping an update would come soon. I then got the bright idea of delivering it to a mainland address and shipping it myself to Hawaii. The temporary guide at the time warned me that I'd be on my own with any repairs but that Rivian "probably" isn't planning Hawaii yet because of how few orders there are in the system and that they are counting on people like me to increase demand by forging on our own. How do they expect to sell cars out here without any infrastructure? If there are only a few preorders out here, then start with a temporary facility until the demand exceeds their abilities. But don't mislead us by providing empty promises of delivery only to take it all back and tell us that Hawaii isn't important enough. I proceeded to change my delivery address to my friend's in Oregon, and was soon allowed into the R1T Shop where I was offered variations of my original configuration available for faster delivery. A couple of weeks later I saw one that I was willing to buy and selected it. I completed the 8 step purchase process on my phone in less than an hour and paid for the vehicle in full the next week but wanted to discuss it further with someone. My actual guide contacted me for the first time and was unaware of my plans to take delivery in Oregon and ship it myself to Hawaii. She quickly expressed extreme doubt in my plans and said that I should reconsider and get a refund. She notified me of the difficulty of registering as a non resident in Oregon as well as how if any warranty issues were to come up while the vehicle was in Hawaii and I did not have them addressed in a timely manner, my warranty would be voided. The only way that I could prevent this sort of occurence would be to ship the vehicle back to the mainland and have the warranty repair completed in time and then ship it back to Hawaii. I appreciated her honesty but personally was quite devastated because I had come so close to actually getting the vehicle in my mind and now everything is deleted back into the unknown. No one will tell me anything about deliveries in Hawaii. No one knows of plans to build a service center in Hawaii. I have heard of others forging on their own out here. I'd love to hear of their experiences. I ended up buying a new car out of necessity to hold me over until my Rivian can be delivered here or if there are other ways to go about it, I'm all ears.
