September 4 - September 10, 2023

1. Auctions sales statistics

The car volume at auctions has seen a slight decrease, with a 15-20% reduction, which still allows for a reliable supply of vehicles. While there has been a modest decline, there are no significant disruptions in availability. Both auctions continue to maintain a consistent flow of cars, ensuring smooth operations and a steady inventory for buyers.
Performance metrics such as the number of cars sold and approval ratings have remained relatively stable, indicating effective management of sales despite the minor reduction in car volume.
In summary, the insurance auto auctions offer a stable and consistent environment with a slightly reduced car volume, but operations continue to run smoothly, and key performance indicators remain largely consistent.

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase.
