Good afternoon all!

I just got an email from tesla that my used Tesla MX will be delivered tomorrow. The driver will call me later tomorrow for better estimate of time.

Does anyone else have something I should look for when accepting delivery. I will be checking seals and hinges for cracks and issues as well.

I have a full check list of things to check for from Tesla that I can make sure its up to Tesla standards:

It may be different with a used Tesla but when my new MX was delivered to my house the driver of the truck had no capability other than delivery.
