The company says customers who visit Carvana.com can purchase a car online, then choose car vending machine pickup or home delivery.

"Because customers shop online, they save time and money and don't have to worry about the haggling of going down to the dealership," said Carvana's Director of Communications Amy O'Hara.

Customers who choose the Car Vending Machine pickup receive an oversized coin, which activates the vending process.

"It seems like a cool concept," said Heather Smith of Fishtown.

Once the vehicle is vended into the delivery bay, customers can do a walk-around of the vehicle and sign off on the last few documents.

The Philadelphia Car Vending Machine is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
