Between all the research, test driving and haggling over price, buying a car can be quite a hassle. Carvana took the whole process online and says most customers make a purchase in 20 minutes or less.
All that’s left is picking up your car or having it delivered. If you choose the former and are in Nashville, you could get your new ride from a vending machine.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
The Verge reports that the company has set up a five-story, fully automatic building that houses several cars and has robots to deliver them to customers when they insert a coin into the machine on the ground floor.
Of course, it’s not a real coin: you don’t pay the company a dime until after you’ve tested your new ride from the vending machine for a week.
While the building cost a pretty penny to construct, it helps Carvana sell cars for up to $2,000 less than most dealerships. If you care to travel to Nashville to experience it for yourself, the company offers $200 towards airfare and transfer from the airport.
