VIRGINIA BEACH – An online auto retail platform, with delivery options as fast as next-day-delivery launched in the Southside on Wednesday.

Carvana‘s cars are now up for grabs for the region’s 3 million residents.

Customers can search for, buy, finance and sell a car from their desktop or mobile device. After answering a few questions, every customer can see the payment terms for the more than 8,000 vehicles in the company’s online inventory. A spokesperson for the company said Carvana customers saved an average of $1,461 per purchase versus the Kelley Blue Book suggested retail value in 2016.

According to a company news release, all Carvana vehicles feature a “100-day/4,189-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, as well as a 7-day return policy that allows customers to return their vehicle for any reason whatsoever and receive a refund.”

After completing the online purchase process, customers in Carvana’s markets can receive their vehicle within 24 hours with home delivery or local pickup.

“We couldn’t be more excited to kick off our 2017 expansion with the launch of Hampton Roads particularly due to its ties to tech and early adoption. We’re thrilled to be a part of Hampton Roads and further drive innovation by offering a whole new way to buy a car,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana, in the release. “We launched in Richmond in June of 2016 and we’ve been warmly received within the Virginia area. Our expansion into Hampton Roads will help meet the growing regional demand for the Carvana car buying experience.”

For any Southside residents who purchased a vehicle from Carvana prior their launch on Wednesday, the company will fully refund any delivery fee paid.
