1. Auctions sales statistics

The volume of cars at auctions has rebounded and returned 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 also showing signs of improvement and growth.
In summary, insurance auto auctions provide a stable and consistent environment, with evidence of car volume returning to previous levels. Operations continue to run smoothly, and key performance indicators are not only stable but also showing positive growth trends.
