I made a dump run today & decided to continue south to stalk the the service center(inspired by the Bellevue SC stalkers). I have to admit that this wasn't my first drive by. Today, there was WAY more activity there/cars in the lot. New today were a bunch of cones in the lots (to line up new R1T's for delivery)? There were 4 flatbed trucks. And there were 2 R1T's in the service bay & 1 pulling into the parking lot. Sorry for the horrible photos.

Between this and Bellevue, something is up... doesn't seem like first mile stuff.

This sounds like weather forecasting in the Rockies. Snow today. Forecasters got it right.

I see your stalker move and raise you one.

Haha. This is hilarious. I decided to take my afternoon run this afternoon a little further south than my normal afternoon run. (Did you know there's a running trail along the Bay right behind the Rivian service center?)

Would have been extra hilarious if we had run into one another on the street corner... I saw the four flatbed trucks outside and there were 5-6 Rivian employees outside, maybe training for pickup/dropoff at the service center. I counted three trucks in the service area along with one Amazon van, I think.

Here are some additional photos for your post, that I snagged while also creeping outside. Got lucky and had caught a truck in the wild from a few different angles:

Could be. Their next door neighbor is Amazon so seemed to make sense it could be an Amazon van. Amazon actually occupies about 10-15 buildings down there.
It looks like a high roof transit to me.

It does bring up an interesting question. If Rivian is making urban electric delivery vans for Amazon, why not use those as it's service vans?

Maybe the specs don't work but seems silly to build electric vans to displace (probably Ford) ICE delivery vans while then leasing/purchasing (probably Ford) ICE service vans to build out your service fleet...

Presumably they’ll have a mix at first, given obligations to fill Amazon’s van contract.

In the updated VIN decoder (Table 1 on the right below), Rivian added their Vans to the decoder. In Position 8, there are two new Trim levels: "Service" and "Amazon". The latter is self explanatory, but I think the former shows that Rivian Service vehicles may eventually be their own vans!
