General Services Administration (GSA) has announced its 2020 contract awards. GSA's list of ServNet auction partners includes twelve auctions throughout the United States, reports Bruce Beam, ServNet's President. Many of the locations have years of experience in selling government vehicles, which are offered to both to public buyers and auto dealers.

 

"We're very pleased to announce that over half of our auctions will again be handling GSA vehicles for the upcoming two-year contract period," said Beam. "Fortunately for all our customers attending a GSA sale event, whether first-time buyers or auction veterans, ServNet auctions have the knowledge and training to make buying from GSA a productive experience for everyone involved. The auction team at every location will be there to help the customer through every step of the auction process, from sale registration, vehicle previews, and the bidding process, through the sale and the vehicle's exit from the lot. We know that GSA's buyers will find a level of service at ServNet auctions that they have not experienced anywhere else."

 

Included in this year's contract awards are:

  • Akron Auto Auction (Akon, OH)

  • BSC America / Bel Air Auto Auction (Belcamp MD)

  • Clark County Auto Auction (Jeffersonville IN)

  • DAA/OKC (Oklahoma City OK)

  • MAG / DAA Seattle (Auburn, WA)

  • Greater Rockford Auto Auction (Rockford, IL)

  • Greenville Auto Auction (Greenville NC)

  • Houston Auto Auction (Houston TX)

  • Indiana Auto Auction (Fort Wayne IN)

  • Mid-State Auto Auction (New York Mills MN)

  • North Bay Auto Auction (Fairfield CA)

  • San Antonio Auto Auction (San Antonio TX)

  • Tallahassee Auto Auction (Tallahassee FL)

GSA inventory at every ServNet auction location is available for online preview and purchase via Simulcast technology.


"GSA sales at auctions around the country are very successful and their conversion percentages are usually very high, which results in selling a unit first time it runs," explains Cindy Mitchell, Vice President of Fleet Services at BSC America. She and her team have many years of experience processing vehicles GSA for BSC America, which has two auctions locations on the current contract list.

 

"While GSA units are offered to the public, most purchases made are by dealers," Mitchell continues. "GSA vehicles are very desirable units for dealers, both franchise and wholesale, as they have been on maintenance programs and generally have been well taken care of, and are very low in miles.

 

"In our experience selling for GSA, we have noted that their vehicles attract buyers who may not normally attend a sale, which gives the auction the ability to cultivate new buyers for their other lanes."

 

ServNet auctions are working tirelessly to navigate the business of remarketing vehicles in a COVID climate. ServNet auctions have maintained a strong presence in the market since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, holding online-only sale events, and many of the group's locations are again holding live sales following local and state guidelines.

 

"The used car market is gaining strength, with retail sales starting to recover as more dealers are back in business in many states," notes Bruce Beam, General Manager at DAA/OKC and ServNet's President. "Those dealers are eager to buy and sell at the auction, and are again benefiting from doing business with their local ServNet auction."

 

Currently, most ServNet auctions are holding live sales, following local mandates regarding social distancing and attendance restrictions.  All ServNet auction locations are using digital platforms to hold regular online events.
