Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA), a business unit of global vehicle remarketing and technology solutions provider KAR Auction Services (NYSE: KAR), launches its newest auction channel offering a more targeted buying and selling platform. Sellers who want a full-service auction company partner can now target non-insurance, clear title, Run & Drive® vehicle segment buyers through IAA Ignite. Ignite allows sellers to consign vehicles utilizing IAA’s suite of auction channels – IAA Live and OnlineTM, IAA Timed Auctions and IAA Buy NowTM – all in one location.
“We wanted to create an efficient marketplace for independent dealers and rebuilders with access to the clear title, run and drive, higher mileage segment of inventory they desire,” said John Kett, CEO and president of IAA. “By leveraging our multi-channel auction model, we can match the right buyer to the right seller. Our new location in Portage, Wisconsin will serve as the launching point for the IAA Ignite brand.”
The new IAA Ignite Auction in Portage, previously ADESA Wisconsin, celebrates its grand opening January 25, 2018 and will operate largely like an IAA Auction except for the specific inventory it will offer. Interested buyers can register at IAA-Auctions.com.
