Carvana paves the way for more online car sales

BY Dan Berthiaume

Carvana, an e-commerce platform for buying and selling used cars, is driving its business into Colorado.

Carvana is introducing online vehicle delivery to customers in the Colorado Springs, Boulder, Fort Collins and Greeley, Colo., areas. In as little as 10 minutes, customers can shop more than 15,000 vehicles on Carvana.com, finance, purchase, trade in, sell their current vehicle to Carvana, and schedule as-soon-as-next-day delivery.

All 15,000-plus vehicles in Carvana’s national inventory are photographed in 360 degrees, so customers can take a high-definition virtual tour of an auto before purchase. Features, imperfections and updated information about open safety recalls are listed on the car’s vehicle description page. Instead of a traditional test drive, Carvana offers customers a seven-day return policy.

“Colorado residents have so many different needs when it comes to a vehicle,” said Ernie Garcia, founder, and CEO of Carvana. “We’re proud to offer Colorado Springs, Boulder, Fort Collins and Greeley a national inventory of more than 15,000 vehicles, paired with as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery so they easily and quickly get exactly what they need without ever having to step foot in a dealership.”

Carvana now offers as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in five markets in the state and 122 markets across the U.S. In addition to online delivery, the retailer also operates 17 “car vending machines” in cities across Illinois, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Arizona, Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. The coin-operated, all-glass structures offer physical pick-up for customers who purchase their vehicle on Carvana.com.
