CarLotz Accelerates Growth in the Sunshine State

Clearwater to be Home of Next Hub

Richmond, Virginia, UNITED STATES


RICHMOND, Va., May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CarLotz (NASDAQ: LOTZ), the nation’s largest consignment-to-retail used vehicle marketplace, announced today it will open its third Florida hub in the coming months. Located at 13525 US Highway 19 in Clearwater, this hub will serve guests on both sides of the bay, adding to sister hubs in Tampa and outside of Orlando on Merritt Island.

“Our unique consignment model has proven to be very successful in the Sunshine State,” said Michael Bor, Co-Founder and CEO of CarLotz. “As CarLotz continues to expand across the Southeast, it’s really exciting to see three hubs in another state, like we have in Virginia. In some cases, we open hubs to reach a new market and in other cases to increase capacity, but with our Clearwater opening and the unique dynamics of the greater Tampa – St. Petersburg market, this hub helps us in both respects. It also goes to show that when our guests experience the benefits of our consignment model, which results in thousands more in value over the competition, the good news travels fast. We are grateful to our guests for spreading the word,” Bor continued. 

CarLotz is on a mission to create the world’s greatest vehicle buying and selling experience for consumers and commercial consigners. This expansion in the Southeast, coupled with its recent Illinois and California announcements, underscores CarLotz’s commitment to that mission. The company operates its full omnichannel offering out of hubs in Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas, Washington State and California (opening soon).

CarLotz is currently hiring for dozens of open positions including sales coaches, service techs, managers and other roles at the new Clearwater location, as well as several other locations around the country.
