Online Auto Retailer Carvana Launches in St. Louis
Carvana, an eCommerce platform for buying used cars, announced its expansion into St. Louis with plans to hire up to 10 staff.
Carvana, an eCommerce platform for buying used cars, yesterday announced its expansion into St. Louis, the company’s first market in the state of Missouri and its 24th overal. Carvana’s service offers as-soon-as-next-day delivery services to its customers. The company plans to employ somewhere between 5-10 people in St. Louis, which would scale based on the volume of the market.
Carvana’s technology aims to deliver a seamless online car-buying experience where customers have control over the entire process. Customers can search for, purchase, finance and trade-in a car at Carvana.com from their computer, tablet or mobile phone. Once they have completed the online purchase process, customers can schedule home delivery of their vehicle as soon as the next day or they can arrange to pick it up from one of Carvana’s proprietary automated Car Vending Machines in Nashville, Houston, Austin or San Antonio. Carvana also offers a 7-day return policy that allows customers to return their vehicle for any reason and receive a refund.
“We’re so pleased the Gateway City is our gateway into the Midwest,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “Launching our free delivery services in St. Louis allows us to give nearly 4 million consumers an alternative to the traditional dealership experience.”
To date, Carvana has delivered cars to customers in 47 states.
