Carvana Used Car Vending Machine

What if I told you that you could order a quality inspected used car right from the comfort of your couch? All of the logistics like financing and trade-ins are handled online. You can even have the car delivered right to your house just like a pizza. And you get a seven day test own to make sure you love the vehicle. Sounds like something out of a movie, right? Wrong! This is real life.

Welcome to the future, my friends! Carvana is the new wave in buying used cars. Browse Carvana’s inventory of 7,200 vehicles online, take care of the paper work, and pick up your new car at the Carvana hub or choose to have the car delivered to your home. If you’re not satisfied with the vehicle, you have seven days to return it.

Last week I got the opportunity to check out Carvana’s newest hub here in Jacksonville. Maybe you’ve spotted the tower along I95 near the University/Bowden exit. I thought it was going to be indoor skydiving so color me surprised when I found out it was a car vending machine. Our behind-the-scenes tour included a ride on the lift to see how the car inventory is maintained and maneuvered around the hub.



Carvana cuts out the middle man in car buying. Their online inventory is easy to navigate and offers 360° views of every vehicle, exterior and interior. Carvana prides themselves on their transparency so any imperfections are noted. Once you’ve found a vehicle you like, you can pay cash or apply for financing through your own bank or Carvana. Finally, choose whether you want to pick up your vehicle from one of Carvana’s hubs in cities like Jacksonville, Atlanta, Nashville, or Houston or have the vehicle delivered to your home for a fee. Every car sold is Carvana Certified with a 100 day/4,189 mile “Worry Free Guarantee” and a 7-Day Money Back Guarantee.

So, why the giant tower? Storing the cars in the tower versus a lot means the vehicles are kept out of the elements and ready when you are. Each car is fully detailed before being loaded into the tower so there’s no waiting around for a car to be cleaned before you’re given the keys.

Take the stress out your next car purchase and check out Carvana. For more information on their inventory, buying process, or warranties, visit carvana.com.
