Shift Enters Seattle Market

By Staff Writer March 19, 2020

California-based online car marketplace Shift announced it has launched its first Washington-state market in Seattle, allowing customers there to sell cars to Shift directly using its convenient brought-to-you service.

The service became available to consumers within the Seattle greater metropolitan area including Everett, Bellevue and Tacoma, for appointments beginning  March 16. 

A car owner interested in selling begins by going online to to answer a short series of questions about their car, which allows Shift’s proprietary pricing system to determine the fair-market value and generate an instant estimate. The customer can then schedule an evaluation, whereby Shift dispatches a concierge to their location to inspect the car, make any adjustments to the estimate, and produce a final offer.

If the customer accepts the offer, the concierge will facilitate the transaction; Shift will complete all necessary DMV paperwork and payment information digitally on the spot. The entire evaluation and transaction appointment take an average of one hour.
