Congratulations to the recipients of this year's Auto Remarketing’s Best Auctions to Work For program, presented by CARS Recon.
The program is a free workplace study for the auto-auction industry that recognizes the best auto auctions to work for on an unranked basis. It is designed and intended for individual physical auction locations — and for the first time, digital auctions, as well.
Digital auction honorees are designated as such.
It is absolutely free for both physical and digital auctions to participate.
Winners are recognized in the Sept. 15 edition of of Auto Remarketing and at a Nov. 15 breakfast during the National Remarketing Conference + NAAA Convention segment of Used Car Week, which is being held Nov. 12-16 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz.

More about the ‘Best Auto Auctions’ program
Auto Remarketing, teaming with the Best Companies Group (BCG) in Pennsylvania, underwrites the study. The study is managed by BCG, and the data is analyzed 100 percent by the staff at BCG. Best Companies Group directly administers all surveys and manages and analyzes all data and information that is gathered.
The Best Companies Group assesses the data from the group of auctions choosing to participate and develops metrics and standards based on that data to determine which auctions are named to the list of Best Auto Auctions to Work For.
The Q&A pieces in the special section were put together by Auto Remarketing, which also gathered photos provided by the honored auctions. This is the third year of Best Auto Auctions to Work For.
To see those who won in either 2016 and/or 2017, see the listing of all-time winners here.
We encourage all auto auctions, physical and online, to take advantage of this great workplace study opportunity and participate in 2019.
Stay tuned early next year, when we open up registration for the 2019 project.
Thank you to all who participated this year, and congratulations to those recognized in this year’s study!
