A giant new nine-story vending machine that dispenses cars has just been set up in Arizona.

Carvana, the company behind the car vending machine, started putting vehicles into the glass building at Tempe, just outside Phoenix, over the weekend.

The company has been selling cars from its vending machines since last fall.

Its new towering glass vending machine sits just off the busy Loop 202 highway and is slated to open soon.

The way it works is customers purchase their new car online via the Carvana website and then use a special coin to dispense it directly from the automated garage vending machine. 

Customers can witness their car being retrieved from the glass vending machine and placed on a track that moves it to a delivery bay. When the bay opens, the new owners can jump in and drive off. 

Carvana offers online comparison shopping, refurbished vehicles, financing options and trade-ins all on its website. 

Prices currently range from $6,000 to $84,000.  

The company also provides free delivery as soon as the next day, or pickup at one of the vending machines. 

In addition, it offers a seven-day test drive period, which allows customers the possibility of a full refund.

Carvana already has locations in Nashville, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Tampa and Charlotte.

It opened up an eight-story vending machine in Washington DC this month. 

When it first launched, the company proudly said it believed the concept would win over customers by completely overhauling the so-called dreaded process of buying a used car. 

Carvana co-founder and CEO Ernie Garcia said at the time the whole idea was to 'make car buying fun'. 

'It's very clear from the customer response that what we're doing works,' Garcia said.
