    Bought used 3 privately, transporter in accident, can’t access my car, battery at 32%, now what?

    The truck is locked inside a gated space far away from any outlet. Even if it was closer, I'm sure the owner of the facility wouldn't have allowed me in to the car..not to forget, the car is on the top tier..access would be even tough..

    Bought used 3 privately, transporter in accident, can’t access my car, battery at 32%, now what?

    Yes, I did. They were ok for me to come and take a look, but nothing more than that. But, after reading the court order, I felt it would be best not to meddle with anything on or near the truck, and further delay the process.

    Bought used 3 privately, transporter in accident, can’t access my car, battery at 32%, now what?

    quick update: I have received the Court order from Montway, which confirms that there in fact was a court order not to move the truck from the holding facility (the body shop) Also, I went further and registered at the 'Harris County District Clerk' (the court order had this detail), and...

    I will call the body shop and let them know that I am planning to travel in the next few days and make sure they do not have any problems(due to court order) showing me the truck and car...or even get in to the car...that way..my trip will not be in vain

    No, the pictures that you see are of the car when it was being loaded during pick up in NY. The car is still ON the truck at the body shop.

    Thanks a lot... other than me having to jump start the 12v battery before I can super charge the battery pack, what other downsides are there of a dead battery?

    Yes, I have added the car to my tesla app..but, I do have the key card with me..so I can open the car, trunk frunk once I get consent from the body shop owner to do so tomorrow.

    Bought used 3 privately, transporter in accident, can’t access my car, battery at 32%, now what?

    Yeah, I was opening the Tesla app frequently initially, but now I realized that it would have to constantly connect to the car each time I did that...so I stopped doing that few days back...there is a supercharger 10 miles from my house ..so will ask the driver to drop the car at...

    the car was at 72 miles when picked up by carrier and was at 32 miles few days back when Tesla rep checked it...it is not %, like I mentioned in my post..I guess I've to proof read it better from next time....1st post hence few mistakes...

    I agree..has to be the saddest longest delivery experience...I might travel to the body shop tomorrow, if I do, I will ask the owner of the body shop if he can run an extension cable to the truck to charge the car...will see how it goes...will post updates here...

    Yes, they probably only have liability insurance which would cover any damages (if any) to the car. Anyway, I do not want to deal with them after the delivery of the car for loss of use. I have lost enough peace of mind dealing with them already.

    Bought used 3 privately, transporter in accident, can’t access my car, battery at 32%, now what?

    They do..atleast, that's what they said...it's the court order preventing them to move the truck and trailer and the cars on it , out of the body shop...again, that's what they say anyways

    I am new to this group and this is my 1st post. I have recently purchased a used Tesla model 3 from a couple in New York. This is a 2018 long range model 3 which has 5000 miles on it and all the transactions went pretty smooth with this seller. I booked a shipping company called Montway to pick...

    Quiet Package?

    I would rather have them improve their fit and finish to minimize panel gaps and add more door,glass sealants ..this would reduce wind and road noise...and for an expensive car ...this should be bare minimum... Honda adding an acoustic windshield to their touring model makes sense for a sub 30K...
