COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 24, 2020) – Carvana, a leading e-commerce platform for buying and selling used cars, has announced plans to open a new inspection center in Heath, Ohio, with upcoming hiring events for up to 100 new employees. The hiring events will be held daily, July 7-9, with the goal to hire entry level employees, as well as technical and cosmetic skilled workers.

Carvana, the fastest-growing auto retailer in the U.S., allows customers to shop more than 17,000 vehicles on, finance, purchase, then select as-soon-as-next-day touchless home delivery or Car Vending Machine pickup. Carvana vehicles are inspected, reconditioned and photographed in 360-degrees at its inspection centers, like the one planned in Heath, so customers get a detailed, high-definition virtual tour of every vehicle. Additionally, every vehicle comes with a 7-day return policy, so the customer can live with their vehicle for a week and ensure it fits their life. Carvana’s new inspection center in Heath started installing equipment this month and plans to be open for its first shift later this summer.

“Carvana has been growing extremely rapidly over the last several years, and we are working to bring The New Way to Buy a Car to even more customers all the time,” said Carvana’s Vice President of Inventory Strategy Brian Boyd. “As part of our efforts to scale the business, we’re looking forward to working with Licking County and the Columbus Region to open a vehicle inspection and reconditioning center, and becoming a member of the community.”

KSM Location Advisors is pleased to have negotiated $1.595 million in incentives for Carvana.
