Buying a Car from Carvana vs. a Dealership

Couple looking over paperwork in a dealership
Maybe you’ve driven by and seen the huge used car vending machine at the local Carvana. What are the pros and cons of Carvana as a place for Eatontown drivers to buy their vehicles? Should you buy your next Range Rover from Carvana? Why is Carvana so expensive? We want you to make smart purchases, so we’ve put together the detailed Carvana vs. dealership comparison below.



Carvana vs. Dealership – Buying a New Car

You can’t buy a new Range Rover from Carvana. Why? They only sell used cars. We, on the other hand, have a wide selection of new Land Rover SUVs.

Carvana vs. Dealership – “No Haggle”

Carvana prides itself on not haggling. That might seem appealing if you’re intimidated by the thought of negotiation. But, that basically means you’re stuck paying the price they tell you to pay. We encourage negotiation because we want our Rumson customers to leave feeling they got a fair deal.

Carvana vs. Dealership – Inspecting the Car You Want to Buy

Everyone knows it’s a good idea to inspect and test drive a used car before you buy it. But Carvana doesn’t allow you to check out or test drive a car until after you purchase it. You can return it within 7 days if you don’t like it, but customers have reported that process to be a pain. We, on the other hand, encourage you to test drive our vehicles before purchase.

Carvana vs. Dealership – Registration and Licensing

You shouldn’t have to worry about filling out all of the registration and licensing paperwork when buying from a dealer. And you won’t have to when you buy from us. However, Carvana has done such a bad job at this that it is no longer allowed to do business in the state of Illinois and is currently having trouble in several other states for the same reason.

Carvana vs. Dealership – Buying Your Car Online

Carvana prominently advertises that you can buy cars from them online. That may seem like something you can put in the pros column of the pros and cons of Carvana. But you can just as easily do your car shopping online with us, as you can with most other dealers in 2022. And we make the process as simple as possible for Colts Neck drivers. As you can see, there’s no advantage to buying a Range Rover from Carvana online.

Carvana vs. Dealership – Selling Your Car Online

When you use Carvana to sell your car, you don’t need to bring it to a physical location. Instead, they will make you an offer based on some basic info you provide online about the vehicle. Then, they’ll perform an inspection and take your car for a test drive to make sure it meets their standards before loading it up then and there.

So, what are the pros and cons of Carvana for sellers? The system requires very little effort on your end, so Carvana is a good choice if you want the most convenient option. If, on the other hand, you’d like more control over selling your car and assessing its value, selling your car to a dealership gives you more time to make your decision. Carvana requires you to accept their offer within seven days, so a dealership might be the better bet if you want more time to do your research.

Finally, you’ll need to consider location before using Carvana to sell your Land Rover. Carvana comes to you to inspect and test drive your car, but if you’re more than 100 miles from one of their hubs, you’ll need to cover the cost of transporting your vehicle there. So while it’s convenient to use Carvana in New Jersey, it may not be worth it if you live in a small town.

Why is Carvana So Expensive?

Customers have reported that Carvana is very transparent with their pricing, but their deals are not better than what you can get from a dealership. Why is Carvana so expensive? Here are some possible reasons:

  • Carvana does not allow negotiation
  • Carvana has recently reported significant financial losses
  • Carvana does not offer specials like the ones you’ll find at Land Rover Monmouth

We think that comparing the pros and cons of Carvana weighs heavily in favor of buying at a dealership, especially if that dealership is Land Rover Monmouth. So, come down and find out just how easy it can be to buy a car from us. And, if you’d like to be even more informed, read this discussion on whether it’s better to buy or lease a car and this post on the best time to trade in a car.
