Carvana’s convenient online platform makes car buying fun again by allowing consumers to browse more than 7,000 vehicles on Carvana.com, on their own time, without the pressure of a traditional dealership. Additionally, in 2016, customers who purchased a car through Carvana saved an average of $1,430 compared to the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail Value.
Because Carvana values transparency and safety, all vehicles in Carvana’s inventory have passed a rigorous 150-point inspection, have never been in a reported accident nor have frame damage. All features, imperfections and updated information about open safety recalls are listed on the car's vehicle description page. In order to give customers peace of mind, everyone is offered a seven-day money-back guarantee to ensure that their vehicle fits their life.
“We unveiled the world’s first coin-operated Car Vending Machine in Nashville, and since that launch, awareness of the new way to buy a car has grown,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “Extending the Carvana experience to even more Tennesseans, with free, as-soon-as-next-day delivery to residents of Chattanooga and Knoxville was a logical next step.”
Carvana has delivered vehicles to customers in 48 states, and offers free, as-soon-as-next-day delivery to residents in 35 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, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Richmond, San Antonio, St. Louis, Tampa, Washington, D.C., and now Chattanooga and Knoxville.
