Acura of Peabody Delivery !

Here's a short clip of an NSX getting unloaded off of the truck for an Acura dealership in Peabody, Massachusetts. These cars really come with no plastic or anything it seems ?

unless what we're seeing here is it being delivered with paint protection from a detailer. Sometimes dealerships will do that, take delivery, do PDI, detail/paint protection/etc. At that point the process is complete and its ready to be driven how any owner would.

but to note some dealerships have their own in house detailers, others outsource, which at times is the better route, especially when dealing with this high caliber of vehicle

Highly doubt Acura would have any detailers in house that could do work like paint protection/paint correction. For that stuff they would definitely send it out to get done. Majority of dealerships have "car cleaners" rather than actual detailers.

that's what i noticed as well
some even hire some of these guys per job to come in and detail in their dealer, so sometimes that happens and gives off the idea that "the dealership" detailed your car, and you can bet they charge you accordingly, as they would with any other service.

That's pretty much it, it seems. The dealer will use an outsourced detailer to do these specific bigger jobs, and add a premium on top of that so they can make their cut. They'll already get discounted prices from the dealership if they use him often as well

it's the trade off.

detailer gets vehicles to detail in VOLUME, which might not be nearly as possible if going solo or operating with a much, much smaller client base.

If they have an in house detailer, he wouldn't be getting much volume from the dealership. Maybe overflow if anything but that rarely occurs if they have a decent in house setup.

It's only those bigger jobs that the in house car cleaners can't handle or do properly

For sure, they'll try to give majority of their work to their own detailers because it just makes sense financially.

I think that's just how all Acura NSX are delivered, without any plastic. Another dealership got theirs and it had no protection either.

that's easy to say but there's so much going on, so many hands it passes through before being ready for the owner.
being this high caliber of a vehicle they had to cover it up, most car makers selling stuff like this do just that, even when it comes to Accords, Civic's, HRV's, etc you see them covered.
