The Valley of the Sun now boasts the hottest car buying experience in the country! Carvana has proudly made Tempe, Arizona home to a brand-new NINE-story Car Vending Machine – the nation’s tallest Car Vending Machine which will offer a new way to buy a car to more than 4.7 million residents living in the Phoenix metro area!
Like many of the other Car Vending Machines that Carvana has launched in the past, in Tempe, customers can expect to see similarly striking design and functionality that was established as a new blueprint beginning with the launch of our Nashville Car Vending Machine in November 2015. However, unlike any of our previously constructed Car Vending Machines, our new Tempe Car Vending Machine stands nine stories tall, making it the nation’s tallest Car Vending Machine to date. Additionally, the Tempe Car Vending Machine will be outfit with four delivery bays, an all-new coin receptacle, as well as a newly designed customer waiting area.
To pick-up a purchased vehicle at the Tempe Car Vending Machine, the customer simply drops their custom coin into the Car Vending Machine’s coin slot, which then illuminates the coin receptacle and prompts audio and visual signals to the customer that the Car Vending Machine’s automated vehicle delivery system is coming to life. With the customer looking on, the Car Vending Machine then retrieves the vehicle from the Tower and places it on a track, which then moves the car through the machine until it reaches its designated delivery bay. The bay then opens and the customer is invited in to take possession of their car, where they will have seven days to drive the car around town before ultimately deciding if the vehicle is right for them.
Following the launch of our Phoenix market in August 2017, the wait for the first ever nine-story Carvana Car Vending Machine is officially over, as Tempe now serves as our 12th Car Vending Machine location to date – joining Nashville, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Tampa, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., and Orlando.
At the end of the day, our mission is to provide Carvana customers with a new way to buy a car that is as unique as it is simple. And with our growing number of Car Vending Machine locations, we believe we’re able to do just that, offering customers an improved car buying experience that runs in sharp contrast to the pitfalls associated with the traditional car buying process.
It goes without saying that we’re excited to make Tempe the newest home to our growing line of signature Car Vending Machines, and we cannot wait to see it serve Carvana customers for generations to come!
