NOVI, MI – You can’t miss the huge tower from the highway filled with automobiles. This is Michigan’s first giant vehicle vending machine known as Carvana.
Located in Novi at the Adell Center off of I-96 and Novi Rd. next to the newly opened Texas Road House, Carvana is a used car business. Up to 27 vehicles fill the eight-story tall building at any given time.
Shopping is done completely online via an inventory of 20,000 vehicles where customers can also finance, sign contracts and schedule to get their vehicle in person or by delivery as soon as the next day. If a customer chooses to pick up the vehicle, they make an appointment to come to the vending machine, insert an oversized coin into the slot and watch their vehicle come right down to them.
Car buyers have a full week to make sure they like their used vehicle with a seven-day return policy. Carvana says its vehicles must pass a 150-point inspection, have no frame damage and have never been in a reported accident. Customers can also sell their current vehicle at Carvana which says it gives quotes in just minutes.
“When we debuted “New Way To Buy A Car” in Detroit in 2017, we were proud to become a part of a community known for its automotive innovation,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana. “That was a big moment for us. At the time we didn’t know how big. Three years later, we’re continuing to contribute innovations to the Motor City with our signature Car Vending Machine.”
The Novi Carvana is the 26th location to open in the U.S. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET.
