Normally if you live in Southern California it should not take more than 5-7 days from the day the ship arrives at Port Hueneme (Oxnard) to the day the car is ready for pick-up at the dealership.
I have seen the word "scratch" used for anything from a thin hair sized line to dents and torn bumpers with peeled off paint. If it was a minor scratch it should not take that long to repair, and if it was more than that then I would not accept the car.
