Carvana: Revolutionizing Car Sales in a Changing World

Our world around us is rapidly evolving, technology has transformed almost every aspect of our lives. From the way we shop to the way we communicate; the digital age has revolutionized our daily routines.

The new way of doing things can be challenging to except some days. There's a yearning within me to go back to a time from my childhood, where life seemed simpler and more comforting. But was it simpler?  Those days are gone and I need to embrace the changes. One of those changes is how we buy and sell cars.

The automotive sector has seen a significant shift, especially in the process of buying and selling cars. Carvana, a revolutionary online platform, has emerged as a game-changer, reshaping the way we buy and sell vehicles.

A couple of years ago, I had to face this change as my son decided to sell his Corvette, which I was a co-signer. He mentioned he was going to sell his car using Carvana. I didn’t know anything about the company. I did a little research and questioned him. I had my concerns. However, my son said it the way to go. I put my trust in his research and we went for it.

WOW! We didn’t even have to leave the house. He filled out some information online then set up a house call. They came to our house looked at the Vette and wrote a check right there in the driveway. A few hours later a tow truck came and took the car. Easy Peasy. 

No placing classified ads and dealing with numerous potential buyers and haggling over prices. That approach is inconvenient and often lacked trust and transparency.

Now, with the advent of the internet and the rise of e-commerce, the automotive industry has been quick to adapt. Carvana, founded in 2012, has streamlined the whole process of buying and selling cars. They have a user-friendly website and app. You can browse through their inventory at your own home. No threat of a salesman trying to pressure you into buying a car.

What sets Carvana apart from traditional dealerships is its focus on customer convenience. Once a customer finds a car they like, they can complete the entire purchasing process online, including financing and trade-ins if needed.

Though we haven’t tried out  Carvana's "Vending Machines", which are an iconic symbol of the company, the selling of our car was so simple and convenient. That process of selling the Corvette was surreal like a sci-fi movie. 

It’s the way of the future I thought and I was right. It seems I need to embrace these new ways. It’s about convenience, a quick and simple process without out hassle.

That day with Carvana foreshadowed the coming future of how the digital age is reshaping industries, transforming the way we buy and sell cars.
