Insurance Auto Auctions Canada

DASHUB Auction Line – Online auto auctions for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more.

DASHUB members have access to nearly 200,000 automobiles at a fraction of their retail value. Many of the vehicles in our Auction Line inventory are sold via a used car auction. At these auctions bids on the car–or motorcycle, or van, or whatever it is–come in from all over the world, and only one person can win that vehicle, and it’s usually a car dealer. We want that person to be you. At this point you might be wondering, “do I need a dealer license to access DASHUB’s online car auction?” Nope! We’re the dealership. Each member that is ready to purchase a vehicle from our Auction Line is assigned a DASHUB Sales Consultant. You’ll have personal service throughout the entire process.

We don’t just offer car auctions, and not every vehicle is sold at auction. Many of our pre-owned vehicles have a “Buy Now” price. Sometimes we can even land a better deal than the listed buy-now price, so if you find one you want, contact your Sales Consultant right away. These go quickly.

Thank you for making my Christmas complete! ”

Dashub is here now to help you! Thanks again to Chris. ”

Salvage cars for sale. Are all of the auctions salvage title cars?

No. Let’s talk about salvage title cars, and what “salvage” means (people sometimes say “salvaged” car or “salvaged” title and while that’s not technically correct, we get it). As a DASHUB member when you browse our Auction Line inventory you’ll find vehicles listed with a salvage title or a clean title. These represent categories of technical terms used by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and insurance companies. For the sake of brevity: a salvage title means that at some point in the vehicle’s history the auto insurance company declared that the damage was enough to warrant a salvage title. A clean title means that didn’t happen, or that the vehicle was already repaired in a sufficient way.

When an insurance company takes possession of a vehicle it often goes to an insurance auto auction. That’s where we come in. Normally, a dealer attends this auction, bids on the vehicles, wins them, does some work, then puts them on the lot and tries to sell them back to you at retail (otherwise known as “a big markup”). We allow you to cut out much of the middleman stuff and win that vehicle at a fraction of what you would have paid had you walked into a dealership. We also get vehicles with clean titles at these auctions and you can bid on them just the same.

Need to find a killer deal on a motorcycle? DASHUB it.

We don’t just offer online car auctions. We have motorcycle auctions, suv auctions, vans, trailers, boats–need a golf cart?–RV auctions, buses, industrial vehicles (you know; big rigs, tractors, and forklifts). But one of our most popular vehicles is the motorcycle. We sell a lot of bikes, from BMW, Ducati, Honda, Harley-Davidson, even Vespa if you need a scooter.

Salvage auction does a bang-up business

IAA grows by handling more than ‘hunks of twisted metal’

So you think you know the salvage auction business.

Here are a few things about Insurance Auto Auctions Inc., a salvage auto-auction company and sibling to auction giant ADESA, that you may not know:

  • More than 40 percent of the vehicles it sells operate and are driven through an auction lane.
  • An estimated 30 percent of the vehicles it sells go to buyers who export them. The No. 1 market? Mexico.
  • It reports the vehicles its sells with salvage titles to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System, a database of vehicle title information to which 44 states contribute, according to the U.S. Department of Justice website. It also reports to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, which is funded by the insurance industry to identify, catalog and share with the public information about damaged vehicles.

And maybe you didn’t know this, either: Since December 2013, IAA, a unit of publicly held KAR Auction Services Inc., has been on a tear. In that time, it has opened, acquired, reopened, moved or expanded sites in 13 markets.

All told, IAA has “over 165” salvage auctions in the U.S. and Canada, and the flexibility to add temporary space based on weather conditions and customers’ needs, said Jeanene O’Brien, the company’s vice president of global marketing.

IAA expanded its presence to help its selling customers dispose of salvage vehicles quickly, CEO John Kett said.

“They’ve written off an asset,” Kett said of most customers selling via IAA. “They want to recover as much of it as they can and are looking to us to help them.

“We’ve been successful in doing that, and with success we need more locations to hold the cars. Having more locations reduces the towing costs we incur to bring a vehicle to a facility.”

IAA’s business model differs from that of ADESA, which specializes in selling whole, nonsalvage vehicles to dealers, who in turn, sell the vehicles to retail customers.

Most of the vehicles IAA sells are damaged and sold with salvage titles, Kett said.

Insurance companies own 80 percent of the vehicles sold at IAA, he said. The insurers’ goal is to liquidate total loss vehicles they acquire after settling insurance claims with their customers. IAA also sells damaged vehicles owned by fleet and rental companies and dealers, Kett said.

Some vehicles IAA sells have clear titles, such as vehicles donated to charities, O’Brien said. Those vehicles generally are older, rougher and have higher mileage than many used vehicles sold at auctions, but do not have salvage titles.

“They sell better in a salvage auction,” she said.

Buyers are mainly vehicle rebuilders, dismantlers and recyclers who sell parts from the vehicles to collision repairers or for scrap, Kett said. For example, a vehicle with sufficient front-end damage to be considered totaled still has many undamaged body parts that can be refurbished and reused to repair other vehicles.

Many buyers purchase vehicles at IAA for export, with Mexico being the No. 1 destination, Kett said.

That, too, is a part of the business that is often misunderstood.

A common misconception is that vehicles sold with salvage titles are “hunks of twisted metal resulting from severe accidents,” Kett said.

But many vehicles IAA sells are operable and can be repaired to be safe and drivable on the road, he said.

Whether IAA gets a vehicle to sell often depends on the value of the vehicle and the cost of the repair. When the repair cost reaches a threshold set by an insurance company, the company will total a vehicle rather than repair it, Kett said.

But often, repair costs are much lower in other countries.

“Labor is a significant part of the repair,” he said. “If a foreign buyer can buy that car, buy the parts and then ship it somewhere they pay significantly less for labor, the math works to fix the car versus totaling it.”

Factors such as used-vehicle prices in this country and scrap metal prices also affect IAA, Kett said.

Buyers needing parts for vehicles with higher used-vehicle values are willing to pay more for salvage vehicles because they know they can get more money for their vehicles once they are repaired, he said.

At the other end of the spectrum are scrap metal prices.

“Typically, every salvage vehicle — unless it’s going to be truly rebuilt — they’re going to take parts off that car and eventually they’re going to have a hunk of metal they’re going to want to sell for its scrap value,” he said.

Kett knows that unscrupulous builders and sellers of salvage vehicles are out there. But he insists that IAA is very careful about selling vehicles with appropriate title brands.

He adds: “We are very transparent about the vehicles we sell.”
