Brought my allocation with me to new dealer

I was lucky to get invited in the most recent April wave to order and got saddled with a dealer charging $7500 adm. After shopping around I found another dealer with a more reasonable fee structure. What was interesting was I changed my dealer and was able to successfully place an order for it and got confirmed by the dealer today.

For those who want to switch dealers, I was able to successfully do this and keep my allocation. Although the dealer I'm working with now did need to reach out to their Ford rep.

Wanted to keep people aware of the process as I'm sure others would want to do the same.

I did get stuck with errors on Ford's website to start but it worked out.

I wonder if you could shop your ok to order to the different local dealers to see which one is willing to make the least for hosting your sale. Dealer 1 is 7k over MSRP, dealer 2 may be at MSRP, but with the ok to order maybe there is a dealer out there that would take less than MSRP (I'm not sure on the actual numbers, but in this example dealer 1 wants to make 13k, dealer 2 wants to make 6k and maybe dealer 3, who is all out of allocation this year would settle for making 3 or 4k?).
I wonder if that allocation reduces that dealerships future allocation by one. So, you can carry it to any dealer, but that doesn’t punish and reward the Dealerships.

Yeah, there is a lot of uncertainty and curiosity around moving the order. Glad to hear it worked the way we hoped.
