Frequently Asked Questions

What are mobile auctions?

ADESA Mobile Auctions transport the sale to your location. Our mobile units travel to locations chosen by the seller, such as a dealership's back lot or an event venue. ADESA Mobile Auctions have all the manpower and technology you would find at a physical auction to facilitate a sale, including ADESA LiveBlock—a live streaming platform—to maximize exposure to interested buyers. It's an auction that’s personalized to the seller and their buyer base.

Why choose a mobile auction?

Mobile auctions provide buyers a more personalized approach to buying vehicles, because there's only one seller and one lane to monitor. The inventory is more focused to meet the buyers' needs.

Sellers provide the inventory, and ADESA does the rest—from marketing to operations. Because there’s no competition, all eyes are on the seller’s inventory. Sellers can host the auctions almost anywhere, and all sales are simulcast via ADESA LiveBlock—to maximize exposure to interested buyers. Sellers avoid paying transportation expenses to ship cars to physical auction sites. Sellers also have flexibility to choose the venue, date and time.

Who can participate in a mobile auction?

Sales are available to all ADESA registered dealers, unless otherwise noted.

How does a mobile auction work?

Aside from providing the inventory, ADESA does everything—including bringing the auctioneer and ringman. ADESA checks in vehicles, facilitates the sale, collects payments, handles the titles and releases vehicles. ADESA can also provide pictures, condition reports and arbitration, on site.
