With Harvey damaging up to a million vehicles in Houston, there’s a mad scramble to transport cars to the region amidst heavy demand. The wholesale car market is especially fielding heavy bidding and new faces at auctions. “For us, we’re just trying to be on the forefront of it: Get our processes in place, get our cars there and be ready,” Brad Rawlins, wholesale manager for a line of dealerships in Ohio, says. “Guys I’ve never had to compete against are in the lane right now, y’know, because they got the same vision as we do.”
