Carvana unveiled its first Carvana Car Vending Machine in Missouri on Thursday. The machine, located in Kansas City, stands eight stories high and holds 27 vehicles.
Also on Thursday, Carvana launched as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery to Topeka.
The Kansas City car vending machine, located at 1700 W. 29th St., is the 18th in the U.S. for Carvana. Additional car vending machines are located in Tennessee, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.
The Kansas City car vending machine is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. central time. Vehicle pickup at any of Carvana’s car vending machines is free for all Carvana customers.
Carvana founder and chief executive officer Ernie Garcia said the company launched as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery to the Kansas City metro area just over a year ago.
“We’ve found that area residents appreciate our new way to buy a car, and as we grow our presence in the Midwest, we’re proud to add a car vending machine to Kansas City’s skyline, as well as expand our services to Topeka today,” Garcia said in a news release.
Customers who choose to pick up at the car vending machine receive a commemorative, oversized Carvana coin to activate the vending process.
