An omnichannel platform for buying and selling used cars is coming to a metro region in New Mexico.

Carvana is launching as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in the Santa Fe, New Mexico, area. In as little as 10 minutes, customers can shop more than 15,000 vehicles on the Carvana site, with ability to finance, purchase, trade-in, and schedule as-soon-as-next-day delivery of a vehicle. All vehicles come with a seven-day return policy.

In addition, Carvana offers a two-minute real online offer for customers who want to sell their car to the retailer. Vehicle owners can enter their car’s license plate, VIN number, and state online, and receive an official offer which is guaranteed for seven days or 1,000 additional miles. If an offer is accepted, Carvana will pick the car up as soon as the next day and pay by check on the spot, after inspecting the vehicle. Customers can also enter a vehicle’s year, make, model, and trim to receive an online estimate.

“As we grow our presence in the southwest, Santa Fe is instrumental in bringing our transparent car buying solution to more and more customers,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “We look forward to now offering as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery to Santa Fe residents, and increasing our presence in a state that has welcomed us for nearly three years.”

Carvana now offers as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in 148 markets across the U.S. Select markets (although not Santa Fe) offer “car vending machines,” which are automated facilities designed to offer customers a convenient pickup option for online purchases.
