After months of lugging our daughter in and out of the back seat of our two-seater hot ride, my honey and I finally bought a family vehicle! Finally!
The process was somewhat grueling until we found the one. And by “the one”, I’m not talking about the bold and beautiful Nissan Armada we purchased. When I refer to “the one” I’m talking about the car dealer.
Most women I know HATE the very thought of having to go to a dealer to buy a car.
One of my best friends actually lists the car buying experience as number three of her top three fears – behind prison and rats!
If you haven’t heard, Carvana is an online used car retailer and technology business based in Tempe, Arizona.
It’s what I call a Brand Disruptor.
Carvana has turned a long-hated process into a quick and enjoyable one and the kicker, you never have to leave your home! You can browse through a huge selection of vehicles on their website or through the mobile app. Carvana also offers financing so you know right away how much your car payment will be based on your down payment (as low as $300). Once you’ve found your car, you can have it delivered directly to your home or pick it up from one of their car vending machines.
In one day, I raved to two friends about this car-buying brand. In disbelief, they immediately checked it out and said, “I will be needing to get a new car soon … I’m going to check them out for sure.”
My new-found obsession with Carvana got me to thinking about why I love this brand so much. I realized it’s because its a disruptor. We’ve been buying cars since 1886, but with technology, this antiquated process has been modernized to become, dare I say, “cool.”
