Now You Can Get a Used Car from a Vending Machine

The fully automated, coin-operated car vending machine is eight stories high and holds up to 30 vehicles.

Carvana, an e-commerce platform for buying used cars, recently debuted its newest car vending machine in Orlando, Florida, two days after opening one in Washington, D.C.

The Orlando location is Carvana’s 11th car vending machine in three years, and the third car vending machine in the Sunshine State.

The fully automated, coin-operated car vending machine is eight stories high and holds up to 30 vehicles, according to Carvana. The idea is to deliver “a unique and memorable pickup experience for cars purchased online,” the company said.

The newest car vending machine in Orlando joins 10 others: in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Nashville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Tampa and Washington, D.C.

In March 2016, Carvana first launched its free, as-soon-as-next-day delivery service in Orlando.

Customers who visit Carvana.com from home or via their mobile device can shop more than 10,000 vehicles, finance, purchase and schedule as-soon-as-next-day delivery. The other option is to pick up the vehicle from a car vending machine in as few as 10 minutes, according to the company.

After purchasing a vehicle on Carvana.com, customers can schedule a convenient day and time to come to the car vending machine to pick up their vehicle. Upon arrival, they receive a commemorative, oversized Carvana coin to activate the vending process and transport the car into the delivery bay.

After some quick paperwork, the customer can take the vehicle home.

All Carvana vehicles come with a seven-day return policy. Additionally, all vehicles have passed a rigorous 150-point inspection, have never been in a reported accident and have no frame damage, according to Carvana. Features, imperfections and updated information about open safety recalls are listed on every car’s vehicle description page.

“A little over two years ago, we launched our free, as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in Orlando. In that short time, Orlando has shown its enthusiasm for the new way to buy a car,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “We’re proud to bring our newest car vending machine to a city that has welcomed us from Day 1.”
