Carvana gets cars to shoppers sooner in Oklahoma City
The omnichannel used car platform is adding a fulfillment option for customers in the Oklahoma state capital.
Carvana has unveiled its newest “car vending machine” in Oklahoma City. Standing eight stories tall and holding 27 vehicles, it is designed to offer a fast and convenient pickup option for customers who purchase a vehicle on the Carvana platform. In as little as 10 minutes, customers can shop more than 15,000 vehicles on the site, finance, purchase, trade in, and schedule as-soon-as-next-day pickup at the car vending site or home delivery of that vehicle. (Area residents can also sell their current vehicle to Carvana regardless of whether they are purchasing a replacement.)
Customers who decide to pick up their car at the vending kiosk are greeted by a customer “advocate” and receive a commemorative, oversized Carvana coin to activate the vending process. They then watch as their vehicle descends the all-glass tower. The process takes only minutes, according to the company. All vehicles come with a seven-day return policy.
“We’ve been offering the new way to buy a car in Oklahoma for about two years, and in that short time, area residents have shown enthusiasm for our easy, transparent online car buying experience,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “We’re looking forward to adding our car vending machine to the Oklahoma City skyline while making car buying fun again.”
Carvana now offers car vending machines in 22 cities nationwide, and also offers as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in 146 markets across the U.S.
