Carvana, a second-hand car sales company, has announced the launch of its 25th automated order fulfillment system in the United States.
The used car vending machine will go live this month in Louisville, Kentucky. The device has eight floors and can hold 27 cars. These vending machines are specifically designed to offer a quick and convenient option for customers who have purchased on the Carvana platform.
The company's website contains more than 15000 cars. The client chooses the appropriate one and makes an order, deciding on the preferable way to get the purchase. You can pick up the vehicle from a particular parking lot, order a delivery to your home or use a vending machine, the number of which is increasing rapidly.
In the latter case, the buyer chooses the most suitable date and time for him. When visiting the vending machine, he is met by a representative of the company, who draws up all the necessary paperwork and then hands him a special coin, with which the machine is activated. The process looks very spectacular; the car goes down to its owner inside a glass tower. In other words, buying a car from Carvana is not much different from purchasing some chocolate from an ordinary vending machine installed at the crossing.
The vending machine in Louisville is, as we described above, the 25th one. Earlier, the company had already installed similar solutions in Texas, Tennessee, Maryland, Arizona, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, California, Oklahoma, and Florida.
According to a representative of Carvana, the company plans to continue to increase the number of such machines, which were to consumers' liking. Not surprisingly, this is an excellent way to make buying a car more innovative than traditional approaches.
