The Power Of Choice

IAA provides an industry leading auction experience by continually listening to buyer feedback and innovating our auction model. We developed a multi-channel auction to provide the choice, flexibility and convenience our buyers need.

IAA Live & Online™


This auction model is our traditional method of selling vehicles in a live physical auction while simulcast over the internet. This model is used by our 180+ branches allowing both live and online bidders to interact with a live auctioneer.
