Less than five years ago, Carvana embarked on a mission to change the way people buy cars, disrupting the decades-old dealership model by putting cars online and customers in control. Since its founding in Phoenix, the company has launched a local presence in 32 markets, and today is proud to announce its hometown is market number 33. Starting today, Phoenix area residents can beat the heat and purchase a car entirely online at Carvana.com, in as little as 10 minutes, and schedule free delivery of their vehicle to their home or office – or anywhere with air conditioning.
From start to finish, Carvana makes buying a car fun and simple. By visiting Carvana.com, customers can browse more than 7,000 vehicles, secure financing, sign contracts, trade in an old car and receive direct-to-door delivery. In addition to saving time, Carvana customers also save money. In 2016, customers saved an average of $1,430 compared to Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail Value.
With transparency and safety at the forefront of the Carvana experience, all vehicles have passed a rigorous 150-point inspection, have never been in a reported accident nor have frame damage. In addition, the company lists out all features, imperfections and updated information about open safety recalls on the car’s vehicle description page. To ensure complete peace of mind, customers are also offered a seven-day test-own period for each vehicle.
“As the home of our headquarters – and nearly 500 of our employees – launching in Phoenix is particularly meaningful for us,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “To be able to deliver our cars to the community that has supported us from the beginning is incredibly humbling.”
Carvana has delivered vehicles to customers in 48 states, and offers free, as-soon-as next-day delivery to residents in 33 markets: Atlanta, Augusta (Ga.), Austin, Birmingham, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbia (S.C.), Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Greenville (S.C.), Hampton Roads (Va.), Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville (Ky.), Macon (Ga.), Memphis, Miami, Nashville, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Richmond, San Antonio, St. Louis, Tampa, Washington D.C., and now Phoenix.
