WESTCHESTER, Ill. — Insurance Auto Auctions recently opened a new location on Wednesday, raising its total to more than 150 locations throughout North America.

The newest location is located in Anchorage, Alaska, marking the company's 14th branch location in its northwest region. IAA noted that the addition further strengthens its facility footprint and enhances its current long-term regional and national vehicle provider relationships.

"Insurance Auto Auctions is focused on expanding its geographic coverage and that equates to larger volume for buyers and more options for vehicle providers to maximize salvage returns and shorten the claims process," explained IAA chief executive officer Tom O'Brien.

"We will continue to evaluate opportunities in selected markets that effectively leverage our sales and marketing capabilities and positively position IAA for the future," O'Brien continued.

"Anchorage is a strategic location that will further benefit many of our long-term customers," he went on to state

IAA pointed out that auction preview dates and times vary from facility to facility. Dealers and other salvage industry personnel can find more details IAA's branch information page at iaai.com.
