Leading Salvage Auto Auction Company Expands Branches in Savannah and Tifton
WESTCHESTER, Ill., May 24, 2017 /CNW/ -- Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA) today announced the expansion of its Savannah and Tifton, Georgia facilities. The growth of these facilities extends the company's footprint across the seven locations in the state and demonstrates IAA's commitment to responding to the increasing needs of its customers in this growing market.
"The Savannah and Tifton expansions advance our pace of proactive operational growth in this important marketplace to better serve our loyal base of buyers and sellers," said John Kett, CEO and president of IAA. "Our ability to provide day-to-day storage and services, and additional capacity as needed due to severe weather events, provides unmatched value to our customers."
The Savannah facility, located at 348 Commerce Dr., Rincon, Georgia, is adding approximately 30 acres, designated to accommodate additional volume due to customer need as well as potential volume resulting from catastrophe (CAT) responses. The branch's coastal location strategically positions it for effective hurricane response; it can accommodate CAT volumes from Northern Florida stretching up the coastline to North Carolina.
The Tifton site, located at 368 Oak Ridge Church Rd, Tifton, Georgia, is adding approximately 19 acres, also to accommodate additional volume due to customer need as well as potential volume resulting from catastrophe (CAT) responses. Its proximity to the Florida Panhandle allows quick response to severe weather incidents that often occur in the area.
Both locations are open for business with auctions in Savannah taking place weekly on Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and Tifton auctions taking place weekly on Mondays at 9:30 a.m.
