IAA is excited to introduce, Rental Rides Limited Auction. A convenient streamlined platform for buying rental vehicles. Bidders have a limited time to bid on vehicles and will know the exact minute a stock closes. The highest bidder wins the vehicle at closing time if the high bid meets the reserve price. This auction will launch on 11/4.
IAA Virtual Lane gives buyers access to an entirely new category of inventory and is kicking off with vehicles from Hyundai Capital. We are lining up additional partners to contribute inventory to this exciting new auction so be on the lookout for announcements regarding Virtual Lane. These vehicles will be immediately available for purchase at a set price via IAA Buy Now™. This auction will begin Monday, 11/9.
