Carvana, an Arizona-based e-commerce company known for its “Car Vending Machines,” is entering the Atlantic City and Trenton markets, it announced Wednesday.

The company, which provides a platform for buying and selling used cars, said it is entering five new Northeast markets, also including Westchester County, New York; Norwich, Connecticut; and Barnstable, Massachusetts.

Customers can use the online site to shop for vehicles, finance them and purchase them, as well as schedule delivery in as little as a day, and sell a current vehicle to the company.

“As we grow our presence in the Northeast, we’re delivering the convenience and savings those customers are looking for when buying their next vehicle,” founder and CEO Ernie Garcia said in a prepared statement.

The new areas give Carvana 96 markets nationwide. The company did not specify if it is planning any of its vending machine towers in New Jersey.
