ADESA to resume simulcast sales at some auctions this week
More than 40 ADESA auctions in North America are set to run simulcast-only sales this week, following a roughly two-week stoppage of all ADESA physical sale operations (which included Simulcast) announced on March 20, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first of those simulcast sales was set to begin Monday in the U.S. and Tuesday in Canada.
The company did note that the sales are "subject to change pursuant to government directive and labor availability."
ADESA will continue waiving simulcast fees through the end of the month.
All ADESA auctions will continue to be at minimum business operation status while also following social distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Public Health Agency of Canada, according to an update posted to the website of parent company KAR Global.
ADESA is not allowing customers or other visitors at its auctions except to drop off or pick up vehicles.
Whether an auction is currently 1) receiving inbound vehicles, 2) offering simulcast-only sales and/or 3) offering DealerBlock sales varies by location.
