The IAA Auction Center is located within one of the largest and well-known import terminals in the country where buyers receive incoming shipped vehicles. The growing buyer traffic in the region created the opportunity for IAA to provide additional services including bidding, transportation, and shipping assistance. Opening an IAA Auction Center will support increased bidding activity, assist new buyers and complement IAA’s existing global relationships. 

John Kett, CEO and President of IAA said:

“We are thrilled to expand IAA’s reach in the Northern Triangle of Central America.” He added: “There is already a significant volume of buyer traffic in the San Salvador region and we look forward to helping meet the needs of the growing buyer base in this strategic market.”

Alejandro Mohor, Owner of Trans-Auto C.V said:

“We look forward to working with IAA to provide services to local buyers.” He added: “IAA’s auctions have seen bidding growth from buyers in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. The introduction of an IAA Auction Center and IAA’s state-of-the-art bidding technology will help area buyers purchase vehicles with greater satisfaction and convenience than ever before. It is an honor that IAA has placed its trust in Trans-Auto, and we look forward to working with IAA to provide services to local buyers in their country’s language.”
