When people ask me how an organization the size of Insurance Auto Auctions (IAA) operates so smoothly, I like to tell them our success is a result of teamwork in action. Whether it’s internal or external, our combined achievements depend on a network of talented people with a passion for the automotive auction industry working toward a common goal.

One thing is for certain, I always call out the contributions of one specific group– our incredible network of partners in the towing and recovery industry. With more than 165 facilities across North America, and thousands of vehicles set for auction every week, tow operators are the lifeblood of IAA. Without them, everything would come to a screeching halt.

There’s a trend happening that we don’t think is right. In the course of doing business, it’s common to see abandoned vehicles taking up valuable space on lots and preventing many from operating at full capacity. Until now, these vehicles have typically been disposed of via the scrap yard, a process that greatly diminishes their potential value. It isn’t fair for you to lose out because someone chose to abandon their vehicle on your premises, so we’re doing something to change that.

IAA is proud to bring our Online Exclusive: Impound Auction Series to the Sunshine State. This event represents many firsts for Florida tow operators, including:

  • A new opportunity to get the most out of the abandoned vehicles on your lot.
  • An auction dedicated to impounded and abandoned vehicles, bringing these units to buyers who understand their true value, and are willing to pay top dollar.
  • A format that makes it easy to turn these obstacles into profit at no cost.

We’re excited to show you how the process works. I’d like to personally invite you to learn more as we host an informational seminar at the Florida Tow Show in Orlando (April 9-12) and encourage everyone in attendance to join us. For details, consult the Florida Tow Show program, or visit IAA in Booth 150/151.

Are you interested in joining our towing network? We are just as interested in partnering with motivated tow operators as we have 10 auction facilities in Florida, spanning from Miami to Pensacola. The IAA Transportation team will be at the Florida Tow Show to recruit new partners to the IAA towing network, and if you think you have what it takes, we’d love to talk. Stop by our booth to discover the opportunities in your area.

Events like the Florida Tow Show remind us how lucky we are to work with talented professionals that empower us to offer our customers the highest level of service in the automotive auction industry. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
