PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carvana, a leading eCommerce platform for buying used cars, announced today its continued expansion into the Northeast with the launch of its Philadelphia market. This addition marks the company’s second market within the state of Pennsylvania, following a successful launch in Pittsburgh in late 2016. With this launch, Carvana now offers free as-soon-as-next-day delivery to nearly 152 million consumers nationwide, including more than 8 million living within 50 miles of the Philadelphia city center.

By visiting carvana.com on a mobile phone, tablet or computer, customers can search for, buy, finance and trade in a vehicle, all from their desktop or mobile device. By answering 10 questions, customers can obtain financing options with no impact to their credit and know precise payment terms for all 7,250+ vehicles in Carvana’s online inventory.

Carvana honors each purchase with a 7-Day Return Policy, allowing customers to return the vehicle for any reason within that window for a refund.
“We’re thrilled to finally be in the City of Brotherly Love. Not only is it a major hub in the Northeast with one of the largest populations in the country, but it has a culture of early tech adoption,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “We launched our free, as-soon-as-next-day delivery services in Pittsburgh late last year, and now with the expansion into Philadelphia, we will be able to offer those services to many more residents in southeastern Pennsylvania.”
