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.

4. Scam of the week

I've found cars from dealers that had the most auctions or did impressive repairs. Remember to check every vehicle of your interest at Copart and IAAI on autoAstat.

2018 GMC SIERRA 2500HD

Auctions: 2

Selling this vehicle will be difficult. The previous condition is just horrific!I would stay away from it!

2006 HUMMER H2

Auctions: 177

It's always important to check autoAstat before buying cars at salvage auto auctions.


5. Cars with the most bids

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
