RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CarLotz (NASDAQ: LOTZ), the nation’s largest consignment-to-retail used vehicle marketplace, announced today it has opened hubs in the Seattle, Washington and Orlando, Florida markets. The Seattle-area hub, located at 20612 Hwy 99 in Lynnwood, Washington, is approximately 15 miles north of downtown Seattle. This marks the ninth opening for CarLotz and the first on the west coast. The Orlando-area hub, located at 1700 E Merritt Island Causeway in Merritt Island, Florida, is the Company’s second location in Florida and tenth opening to-date.
CarLotz is on a mission to create the world’s greatest vehicle buying and selling experience for customers. On the heels of its debut as a publicly traded company on the Nasdaq Stock Market, these two openings fuel the Company’s continued growth.
“CarLotz was founded on the idea that we could greatly improve the process of buying and selling used cars,” said Michael Bor, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of CarLotz. “So, we disrupted the category and rethought the whole process. Florida has been a successful market for us with a proven track record at our original hub in Tampa, and we are thrilled to be able to provide even more inventory to our guests in Florida.
“Our expansion to the west coast is a giant leap in achieving our national expansion mission,” continued Bor. “Our model is actually quite simple – CarLotz puts more value back in the hands of buyers and sellers. Through our unique consignment-to-retail model, customers can get more money for their car when selling through CarLotz, and more car for their money when buying from CarLotz,” he added. “We are particularly excited for Seattle because it is an amazing market filled with early-adopters of disruptive technologies and processes.”
