5-Story Car Vending Machine Is the Coolest Way to Pick Up Your New Ride

Insert a coin (an actual coin the folks at the dealership give you), push the right button, and the car is yours. If vending machines are still popular, it has to be for the visual effect and the confidence they offer - what you see is what you get. But a five-story glass tower that houses up to 20 cars, that’s something else.

It’s quite difficult for companies to be unique these days, and this system isn’t a one-of-a-kind either, but the way it’s being used may as well be a world’s first.

Officially opened today in Nashville Tennessee, the car vending machine is Carvana’s most recent addition. Aside from the five-story glass tower that stores up to 20 cars, the building contains a welcome center, three customer delivery bays, and an automated delivery system that moves the customer’s vehicle from the tower and into each bay.

For those wondering what Carvana is, you’ll want to know it’s one of the most successful, complete online car retailers. It prides itself with services that won't take more than 20 minutes to seal the deal. Apparently, they have been working on this thing for two years, and even though it came with a cost, it should pay off.

When the customer comes to pick up their ride, they select their name from a kiosk inside the Vending Machine and insert a Carvana-branded coin into the custom coin slot, which initiates the vending process. The car is then automatically retrieved from the Tower and is moved through the machine until it reaches a Delivery Bay, where its buyer takes possession and begins their seven-day test ownership period.

Believe it or not, the company will even provide a personalized video of the experience you can then share on social media. Moreover, for those customers who live outside of Tennessee but want to pick up their car at the Vending Machine, Carvana will subsidize $200 in airfare and arrange white glove transportation from the Nashville airport.
