About Carvana

At Carvana, we sell cars, but we are not salespeople. We have made it our mission to create a

hassle-free way for people to buy and sell cars. We saw a huge problem with how much of a headache it is to buy a car the traditional way, so we committed ourselves to put customer satisfaction at the core of our business, we have built a no-pressure, no-haggle online car buying experience that saves our

customers time and money. Customers can search through thousands of vehicles online, see full

360-degree views of both the interior and exterior of the vehicles before deciding to go through the

purchasing process. Our Customer Advocates will then either deliver the purchased vehicle to our

customer's driveway using one of our kick-ass one car haulers, or they will meet our customers at one of our amazing coin-operated Vending Machines.
