Insurance Auto Auctions recently announced that it has both relocated its Jackson, Miss., branch and expanded its Grenada facility in the same state to significantly boost the company’s inventory capacity.
The company said the new expansions have increased the facilities’ previously combined 32 acres to more than 130 acres for expanded vehicle selection and inventory space for market growth and future catastrophic events.
“Our clients in Mississippi have increasing inventory needs, and these expansions will help us continue to offer our best-in-class customer service and auction experience,” IAA chief executive officer and president John Kett said in a news release. “We can now host a single, dual lane weekly auction in Byram and offer greater capacity for vehicle volume resulting from potential catastrophic events, as well as growing client needs.”
In addition to two new run and drive lanes and a Vehicle Inspection Center, the new IAA Jackson facility located in nearby Byram will feature covered vehicle inspection areas and increased security, including thermal imaging cameras.
The newly expanded IAA Grenada facility has added inventory and storage space and will host its auctions on Thursdays. It will hold preview days every Wednesday, according to IAA.
