We’ve been a leader in the automotive auction industry since 1982 with a live auction model and global marketplace that connects sellers’ vehicles with the buyers who need them. When we’re off the auction block, we cultivate relationships in the communities where we live and work.
We’ve been around for quite a while, and we love what we do. IAA has been a trusted partner of insurance companies, fleet and rental firms, financing companies, auto dealers and the general public since 1982. Today, our headquarters reside just outside of Chicago in Westchester, Illinois. We’ve built more than 170 corporate-owned auctions across the U.S. and Canada with plans to continue to expand and grow.
Connecting buyers with the vehicles they need is an effort that starts at the top and carries through to our entire company. These are the individuals who set the tone.
