2020 delivered incredible real estate growth. Through a strategic combination of expansion, leasing, purchasing and contracting, we grew our land capacity extensively. Our plan for 2021 promises even more optimization of IAA locations. 

As we enter into spring, there are exciting things headed our way.  I am looking forward to  the warmer weather and getting back outside. As the snow melts and temperatures rise throughout much of the US, or at least in Chicago, our over 200 locations gear up for the next season. 

It’s the perfect time to showcase our real estate activity last year and give you a sneak peek into some safe and exciting enhancements of our footprint that will deliver value to our sellers and buyers alike. 

In 2020, we had incredible real estate growth. Through a strategic combination of expansion, relocation, partnering and purchasing, we grew our land capacity extensively. 

Take a look 

In addition to our shift to a fully digital auction we also focused on further optimizing our branches. Safety, security and efficiency across all our facilities remains our steadfast commitment as we continue to strategically grow our real estate capacity. In 2021, we will maintain this approach, and include environmentally focused initiatives at branches. 

We’ve already had our first new location of the year. If you missed the news on our exciting facility addition, IAA Kansas City East, you can read about it now.

Lots more great real estate news on the horizon. We will continue to keep you up-to-date.  

Until next time, stay safe and enjoy the start of spring. As always, thank you for your business.
