Used car marketplace Shift expands into Seattle region with end-to-end digital services – GeekWire
The online used car marketplace Shift is moving into the Seattle region, expanding the 6-year-old company’s coverage area the length of the West Coast.
Shoppers within a 60-mile radius of central Seattle will be able to book a test drive and have the vehicle brought to their location. Those shoppers can also make a purchase on the spot through Shift’s digital process.
The move into the region comes shortly after Shift began trading on the Nasdaq. The San Francisco-based startup was able to go public by merging with a SPAC, or special-purpose acquisition company, named Insurance Acquisition Corp. (INSU) earlier this month.
Shift’s end-to-end car buying service includes other digital services such as financing and vehicle protection plans.
Beyond Seattle, the company has regional centers in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego and Portland.
