Insurance Auto Auctions Opens Two Facilities in Louisiana
Strategic Locations Create Broader Coverage in Louisiana

Westchester, Ill. — Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc., the leading hybrid model salvage auto auction company and a wholly owned subsidiary of KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), today announced the opening of two facilities in Louisiana, including Lafayette and New Orleans (Covington, LA.). These two facilities complement IAA’s Baton Rouge branch and create broader coverage throughout Louisiana.

“Our focus at IAA has been to increase our facility footprint because it simply is a win-win for our buyers and sellers alike knowing that we can offer even more vehicles at convenient locations and provide lower transportation costs,” said Tom O’Brien, CEO. “We pride ourselves as a ‘one-stop shop’ for insurers by offering more locations, and provide a comprehensive suite of auction, logistics, and claims services, which maximize salvage returns, lower administrative costs, and ultimately shorten the claims process,” O’Brien stated.

IAA’s mature global buyer base, which consists of automotive body shops, rebuilders, used car dealers, automotive wholesalers, exporters, dismantlers, recyclers, brokers and, where allowed, non-licensed (public) buyers, now have even more choices when it comes to the number of salvage vehicles to bid on and buy. IAA auction preview dates and times vary from facility to facility. For more information, go to IAA’s Branch Information page at www.iaai.com.
