Login ID

As of January 15, 2019, all buyers will be required to use a valid email address as a login ID. This update will provide added security and a more convenient login process. Refer to the screenshot below as a guideline for updating your information, if you haven’t done so already.



Dashboard Updates


On, go to My Auction Center > Profile > Licenses & Documents to access all-new document and form features. Now, you can upload Business Licenses and Tax Documents straight to your profile instead of emailing or faxing them to your branch. Similarly, you can now use DocuSign to provide your signature for some forms online. Currently you can digitally sign Multijurisdictional Resale Certificate (MRC) or Texas Foreign Buyer Forms right through your dashboard.


Check the page frequently, because more documents will be added in the future! Please note, depending on your membership you may see different documents and forms.

IAA Buyer NowTM Real-Time Notifications


Never miss out on a unit you really want. When a vehicle on your Watch List becomes available via Buy Now, you’ll instantly be notified by email! You can also turn off this feature through your settings. To view or change these settings, log in to your account and click on your profile then notifications.


5X Higher Resolution Images


You asked, we answered! All of our images will now be taken with 5x higher resolution, except for a select few branches. Bid with confidence as you zoom in on high-quality vehicle images or view units full screen on desktop and mobile.

Why is this important?

  • More megapixels in an image means more detail is captured.
  • This helps views see more vehicle details.
  • When zooming in on an image, it will show detail more clearly.

This enhancement has been rolled out across and IAA Buyer App (iOS & Android).
