Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. and Preferred Warranties, Inc. Donate Cars and Vehicle Service Contracts/Warranties to Veterans Honored by Progressive

CARMEL, Ind. – Nov. 7, 2017 – A reliable vehicle can mean independence and easier access to work, medical care and educational opportunities for our nation’s veterans – especially for those who live in rural areas with limited public transportation. That’s why KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), a global vehicle remarketing and technology solutions provider, and its business units Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA) and Preferred Warranties, Inc. (PWI) have teamed up with Progressive in support of its fifth annual Keys to Progress® event.

Every November in honor of Veterans Day, Progressive and its partners host a one-day vehicle giveaway event for veterans. This year, IAA will donate nine vehicles to veterans honored during the event on Nov. 9, 2017. PWI will provide one-year service contracts for most of the more than 100 vehicles donated to veterans at the event.

The Keys to Progress® event takes place at 68 locations across the country including Progressive Service Centers, one-stop facilities where Progressive handles claims and coordinates repairs for customers. At each of the locations, veterans and their families will be presented with keys to their vehicle. Since 2013, Keys to Progress® has donated more than 500 vehicles collectively to deserving veterans, their families and veterans’ organizations.

“Progressive’s Keys to Progress® program is an opportunity for the broader automotive claims industry to come together and support those who have selflessly served our nation,” said John Kett, CEO and president of IAA. “IAA is proud to continue its collaboration with Progressive and help provide transportation support to our military men and women.”

PWI’s one-year vehicle service contracts give the veterans and their families peace of mind knowing their donated vehicle is protected.

IAA will be donating vehicles in the following Progressive locations:

• 300 N. Commons Blvd., Mayfield Village, Ohio
• 1410 NW 78th Ave., Miami, Fla.
