We have updated our mask guidelines in the U.S. to reflect the Feb. 25 CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommendations. Effective immediately, wearing masks at IAA locations will be voluntary unless required by local mandate. We will continue to follow all local, state and CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 safety across all IAA locations. You can reference county risk levels and safety recommendations on the CDC website. Please contact your IAA branch to confirm local details if you are unsure.
Onsite vehicle preview days have been reinstated for all branches effective Monday, March 7, 2022. You will be able to preview vehicles in-person from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. local time the day before each branch’s scheduled sale. Please note that all visitors are required to wear a safety vest while previewing vehicles. For further details regarding each location’s auction date at time, visit our branch list.

Due to a rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the U.S., we have decided to suspend in-person vehicle preview days at all IAA branches until further notice. This change is being made out of an abundance of caution and will go into effect Monday, January 10, 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we will be sure to provide additional updates regarding vehicle preview days for all branches.

The health and safety of our employees, customers, and vendors remain the highest priority. Please know that IAA will continue to take all measures necessary to ensure the well-being of our team members, our customers, and our communities.

In response to the recent CDC guideline changes, and in abundance of caution, we have updated our mask policy.

Mask requirements are easing across the United States, and IAA has updated its policy regarding masks being worn inside our facilities. We remain dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of both our customers and staff. Please refer to your state and local authority mask guidelines before visiting our branches.
Vaccinated visitors are no longer required to wear masks at IAA facilities. Unvaccinated visitors are required to wear masks or face coverings inside IAA facilities unless otherwise mandated by a local ordinance.
UPDATED: March 15, 2021
The recent CDC report noting a decline in COVID-19 cases is very encouraging, and some states where IAA operates have started loosening restrictions and statewide mask mandates. Still, IAA remains dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of both our customers and staff as we hopefully are entering the final turn of the pandemic.
We want to thank you for remaining diligent and adhering to IAA’s safety standards. IAA will continue requiring face coverings to be worn by all employees and visitors at all IAA locations in all states, per the CDC's healthy and safety guidelines, until further notice.
As we all navigate this unprecedented time IAA’s focus remains on the health and safety of our employees and their families, our customers, and the communities where we operate. During this uncertainty, we are working diligently to ensure the continuity of our business across our family of companies. Our continued hope is that our focused attention and swift actions will be part of a positive nationwide effort to greatly slow the spread of the virus.

Branch Locations are Open and Vehicle Preview is Resuming
All our branch locations are currently open, and digital auctions are accessible via IAA AuctionNow™. We encourage all IAA buyers to use our digital and online auction channels. Friendly reminder – because the safety and well-being of our buyers and employees are a top priority. Vehicle preview days will soon resume at some branch locations, and this varies based upon mandates and re-opening guidelines set forth by local government. We are controlling all non-essential foot traffic and limiting the number of individuals inside branches to ensure appropriate social distancing. Please contact your local branch with any questions.
Vehicle Preview Openings by State
Live buyer preview will be allowed the day prior to the auction and will now be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please refer to the State roll-out list below. To note – there is potential for frequent updates and changes to this list, as government mandates are ever-evolving State by State.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act
The CARES Act created a new Paycheck Protection Program designed to encourage employers to retain employment and compensation levels. Small Business Administration participating lenders may start accepting applications from small businesses and sole proprietorships on Friday, April 3. Participating lenders may start accepting applications from independent contractors and self-employed individuals on April 10, 2020. Other lenders will be allowed to accept applications when they are approved and enrolled in the program. The program ends June 30, 2020.
As many small businesses are being affected by COVID-19, please note available resources to support small businesses at this time. We have worked with outside legal counsel to offer links to resources providing assistance during this time. This information will evolve and we will work to provide updates accordingly.

IAA has developed the industry leading digital auction platform supported by unmatched vehicle merchandising.
Today, more than ever, in a very uncertain business climate, buyers need to feel trust and confidence when they bid and buy. A traditional set of static vehicle images does not provide the level of detail needed to confidently purchase a vehicle. Our proprietary IAA Merchandising Platform™ combines imaging, information and personalization to de-risk transactions for buyers. This platform is available to buyers at no additional charge. The feedback from buyers, and the return results for sellers, are nothing short of groundbreaking – and certainly crucial during this turbulent time.
Buyer Services/Customer Support is Available to You
Buyer Services/Customer Support is accessible via live chat, phone (877) 937-4243, international callers +1 (630) 686-4097, and email firstname.lastname@example.org. For our U.S. Buyers, if you reach out via phone and want to avoid holding, we offer a call back feature, allowing an agent to call you back. You will be prompted to enter a call back number, and your call will be returned in the order it was received. This option is available daily from 8 am – 3 pm (Central). If you have questions regarding any of IAA’s services, please call Buyer Services/Customer Support, and not the local branch.
