Insurance Auto Auctions Expands Omaha Facility

Expanded Facility Will Better Serve Customers and Regional Demand for Catastrophe Services

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. (IAA), a business unit of KAR Auction Services (NYSE: KAR), and the leading live and live-online salvage auto auction company, today announced the expansion of its IAA Omaha branch located in Springfield, Nebraska, approximately 7.5 miles from Omaha. The expansion adds approximately 11 acres, providing access to increased inventory and greater conveniences to both buyers and sellers in addition to meeting the demands for extensive Catastrophe (CAT) services.

The IAA Omaha branch will now have approximately 30 total acres dedicated to Omaha and the surrounding regions. The facility features covered storage for specialty vehicles and dual auction lanes for Run and Drive vehicles. The expansion is driven by growing volume and the continued need for CAT services in the wake of natural disasters in the area such as tornadoes, severe storms, hail and floods.

"We remain committed to enhancing IAA's services across North America to ensure we're delivering the best experience to our customers, which is why and we are pleased to build a larger facility in Nebraska," said John Kett, CEO and President at IAA. "The additional acreage services the growth in the region, and allows us to offer more capacity to those areas requiring CAT services – historically a critical need for the region."

The facility is located at 14749 Meredythe Plz., Springfield, NE 68059, west of Omaha on I-80, exit 400 and South on Hwy 50. Preview and auction times vary for each of IAA's facilities.
