Michigan’s First Car Vending Machine Opens In Novi
No...seriously, Michigan just got it's first giant vehicle "vending machine" and it's a sight to behold.
Carvana is a company that found a way to make the used car business a bit more unique.
Don't worry, this doesn't mean the end of the "whacky, wavy, inflatable tube men" waving you down into parking lots...those will be around forever.
However, the "vending machine" style is just another way to add some *sparkle*.
According to MLive, Michigan's first car vending machine is located in Novi at the Adell Center.
So how does it work?
MLive reports, you shop for the car you want on Carvana's website where you do all the boring paperwork stuff like financing and signing contracts and whatnot. Then, you schedule an appointment to either pick up your new vehicle or getting it delivered.
Now, clearly, the whole point is to use the vending machine, right!?
That's why if you choose to pick up the car, you can make an appointment to go to the vending machine where you get to insert a giant coin into the "slot" and your vehicle gets "vended" down from the eight-story tall building that can hold up to 27 vehicles at a time!
After you get your vehicle, you do have a seven-day period to make sure you really, really like it.
If you are interested in this kind of process for your next new car, MLive says "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."
Just one question remains...what happens if your car gets stuck so you try to vend another one to help it come down? Do you get two like when you get to keep the extra bag of Doritos or...?
