Carvana has been banned in the state of Illinois for a second time. The online used retailer has become one of the more popular ways to purchase a car in recent memory.
The company makes the purchase process much smoother than going to an actual dealership or lot which is why it has become so trendy, but Illinois doesn’t care about its popularity.
Illinois cares about the people within the state and their ability to abide by the laws of the land so they removed a factor until issues could be resolved.
A very unfortunate situation for those who like Carvana. The company’s “license [was] suspended for the second time in two months on Monday after the company failed to get buyers their titles”, according to the Illinois Secretary of State’s office.
In addition, they were getting temporary vehicle registrations from other states. It looks like a matter of respecting the states and the laws that they have in place.
Considering that Carvana was initially told to correct their ways and they did not hold up their end of the bargain. “The state initially banned Carvana on May 10 due to customer complaints; the ban was lifted on May 26 following negotiations between the company and state officials” according to The Washington Times.
All of the issues created by Carvana may start to make this ban permanent. While this change may not create a huge impact at first, other states will start to look at if Carvana follows its rules. Carvana could be losing tons of business if they can’t respect the states that allow them to have a base there. The organization must try its hardest to stay in the good graces of the people who are willing to give them the ability to work in their spaces.
