ATLANTA, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Following its successful launch in Atlanta earlier this year, Carvana, the first complete online auto retailer, expands its service area to reach car buyers nationwide. Designed to accommodate the growing number of consumers looking for a reliable online source to purchase their next vehicle, Carvana puts car shoppers in the driver's seat by providing a secure, intuitive online shopping platform. The company allows individuals to browse its inventory of vehicles, dynamically set their unique financial terms and coordinate delivery method, all from the comfort of their home.
Carvana's expanded service area, made available by new delivery and pick-up options, gives car buyers nationwide a viable alternative to brick-and-mortar dealerships. Carvana customers can have their vehicle shipped directly in as little as 24 hours, or can elect to pick it up at Carvana's new state-of-the-art car vending machine in Atlanta for no additional charge. Both the delivery and pick-up options are backed by Carvana's 7-day "test own" return policy.
Delivery rates are based on Carvana's national service areas. Customers located within a 75-mile radius of Atlanta will continue to receive free delivery for all purchases. Buyers within a 76 to 250-mile radius of Atlanta can elect to pick up their car at the metro Atlanta vending machine or have their vehicle delivered to them for a flat fee of $199. Users outside 251 miles of Atlanta can either select home delivery or receive a voucher toward one-way transportation to Atlanta and have Carvana's white glove pick-up service drop them off at the interactive vending machine.
"The demand we have witnessed in our first nine months of operations more than proves consumers' appetite for online car sales. Car buyers across the country are hungry for an alternative sales channel from traditional dealerships, and we believe we're the first of many to tap into this growing need," says Ernie Garcia, president and founder of Carvana. "As much as consumers may love their cars, they don't care for the car-shopping experience until now. With Carvana, they can car shop on their terms and that's an empowering, enlightening experience."
Carvana is the first complete online auto retailer that allows consumers to shop, finance and purchase a car entirely on the Web in less than 15 minutes. The company is backed by more than $1 billion in revenue and more than 20 years experience in the secondary car market. All cars available on Carvana.com come fully covered with a 100-day or 4,189 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 7-day money back guarantee.
The company puts full control into the customer's hands and breaks away from the traditional car buying process by providing a secure, intuitive online shopping platform that allows individuals to browse the company's inventory of vehicles, dynamically set their unique financial terms and coordinate delivery method, all from the comfort of their home. Upon delivery, customers can test drive their vehicle in their own neighborhood, and also enjoy Carvana's 7-day "test own" return policy. If the customer decides they don't like the car for any reason, they can return it within seven days, no questions asked.
