To celebrate entering its largest market to date, Carvana is maximizing its marketing presence in Manhattan with a one-day integrated campaign to tell New Yorkers all about the new way to buy a car. Carvana is literally parading its services through New York with a caravan of five signature Carvana car haulers carrying vehicles. Three of the haulers feature vehicles prepped for NYC-style delivery in gigantic takeout delivery bags, emphasizing that you can now order a car online and have it delivered to your doorstep, just like everything else in New York. The parade will cross the Manhattan Bridge from Brooklyn and tour through the city, passing signature areas like Soho, Columbus Circle, Midtown and Washington Square Park.

Throughout the day, more than 250 digital on-street LinkNYC units will display Carvana advertising along the parade route, as well as a live social feed of those using the campaign hashtag #TheNYCWayToBuyACar. Those who spot the parade are encouraged to snap a photo and post to their social handles using the hashtags #TheNYCWayToBuyACar and #sweepstakes for a chance to win a year of free Postmates (up to $5,000).

Because Carvana customers shop for and purchase their next vehicle entirely online, they save valuable time and money. Every Carvana vehicle is Carvana Certified, meaning it has no frame damage, has never been in a reported accident, and has undergone a rigorous 150-point inspection. Features, imperfections and updated information about open safety recalls are listed on the car’s vehicle description page. Along with high-definition, 360-degree photos, every Carvana vehicle comes with a seven-day return policy so the customer has time to ensure the vehicle fits their life.

“New York City is the largest market we’ve launched to date, so it’s fitting we give it our largest celebration,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “New Yorkers are known for being mobile-first, so we’re proud to be the first to give them a fully start-to-finish mobile car buying experience; a service they’ve become accustomed to for much of their purchasing decisions.”

Carvana now offers as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in nearly 80 markets across the U.S.
