The brand Carvana is opening its 30th automated location for picking up online vehicle purchases.

The omni-channel platform for buying and selling used cars is launching its 30th car vending machine, situated in Richmond, Va. The red brick-and-glass structure stands 12 stories tall with a 43-vehicle capacity and serves as an automated fulfilment centre for online car purchases.

The vending machine, the first Carvana has opened since introducing a “car slot machine” in Las Vegas in February 2021, is designed to offer a fast and convenient pickup option for customers who purchase a vehicle on the Carvana omnichannel platform for buying and selling used cars.

Customers can use the Carvana online platform to shop more than 55,000 used cars for sale; secure auto financing; use a digital car loan calculator; and purchase, trade-in, and schedule as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in as little as five minutes.

In addition to home delivery, Carvana customers in Richmond and other markets with a car vending machine can also choose to select a day and time convenient for them to pick up their vehicle at the automated car dispensing location. Upon arrival, they will be greeted by a customer advocate and receive a commemorative, oversized Carvana coin to activate the automated vending process and watch their vehicle descending through the brightly lit structure from inside the all-glass tower.
