Car stuck in vending machine maybe in future

You are standing there, reflection in the glass, peering in. You look over your selections. Bright colors or shades of black and gray, and then there it is. The one you just have to have, B5. You insert your cash, maybe slide a card, and for a brief moment fear it will get stuck forever in the vending machine. Don’t think you will be able to shake it loose, and maybe score an extra treat behind it if it does. You are not dealing with a Snickers bar, and you are not standing in front of any old vending machine. You are about to make the most hassle free automotive purchase in your life.

It’s not that simple yet, but Carvana in Atlanta is as close to a daily snack run to the break room’s snack machine as you are going to get. The dealership is completely handled online. No haggling or verbal communication required. According to Ernie Garcia, Carvana’s company president, cars are advertised about $1,500 below average compared to what the traditional car dealerships offers.

The website offers a seamless 360-degree view of the actual vehicle. Any damage and all features that you would normally find on the window sticker are all listed and tagged on the image. Buyers can inspect the car effortlessly with a click and slide of their mouse pointer. Don’t worry about hidden frame damage; Carvana says they do not buy any cars that have been in accidents. An Experian AutoCheck report is included.

If you do make a purchase through Carvana, the company has local delivery within a 75-mile radius of the dealership for free, but if you are up to 250 miles away, you can expect to pay just under $200 for delivery, and up around a $1,000 if you are on the west coast. Buyers have a week to decide if they are satisfied with their car with a guarantee of their money back if they find they are not. All purchases also come with a hundred day warranty.
