KAR Global is immediately transitioning to Simulcast-only sales at all U.S. and Canada ADESA auction locations until further notice as the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, according to KAR Auction Services.
In accordance with national, regional and local health agencies across North America and Europe, and to help minimize the risk of exposure, KAR Global is making sure its teams, marketplaces, services and technology remain safe, operational and ready to serve its customers, KAR Global said.
Additionally, KAR Global is waiving all Simulcast Success Fees for sellers and buyers through April 3, 2020.
While all sales will run at their regularly scheduled times, vehicles will not run through the lanes and dealers will not be allowed on the premises. Bids can be placed online via Simulcast on ADESA.com, ADESA.ca or the ADESA Marketplace app. Bidders will need valid ADESA.com or ADESA.ca login credentials and buy permissions enabled for their ADESA.com/ADESA.ca account. More information can be found on ADESA.com/Simulcast.
Unless otherwise noted, offices, branches and auction locations will remain open for normal business operations — including vehicle previews and title and payment processing — outside of scheduled sales. On sale days, the auctions will open for regular business including title and payment processing outside of sale hours. Dealers may preview vehicles onsite up to and including on sale day but will not be permitted inside ADESA locations during sale hours. Also, AFC branches within ADESA auction locations will remain open for business as scheduled, except during sale hours.
KAR strongly encourages commercial and dealer representatives to use ADESA Simulcast Remote Seller capabilities during this time.
