September 11 - September 17, 2023

1. Auctions sales statistics

The car volume at auctions has exhibited a minor decrease, showing a reduction of 15-20%, although it is important to note that it has rebounded and is returning to its earlier levels, ensuring a dependable supply of vehicles. Despite this temporary dip, there have been no significant disruptions in vehicle availability. Both auctions have consistently maintained a flow of cars, contributing to seamless operations and a stable inventory for buyers.

Performance metrics, including the number of cars sold and approval ratings, have not only weathered the minor reduction in car volume but are now showing signs of improvement and growth.

In summary, insurance auto auctions provide a stable and consistent environment, and there is evidence of car volume returning to its previous levels. Operations continue to run smoothly, and key performance indicators are not only stable but also showing positive growth trends.

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