About this app

Use Insurance Auto Auctions’ (IAA) app to bid on lightly damaged cars and other salvaged vehicles anytime day or night, including cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and heavy equipment. We cater to anyone who wants to buy lightly damaged or salvaged cars: used car dealerships buying hundreds of lightly damaged vehicles, mechanics and body shops looking for car parts, and people who buy cars for scrap.
A portion of our inventory comes from vehicle fleets (rental car agencies, company cars, etc.) or bank repossessions with little or no damage. We also serve buyers seeking wrecked car auctions, featuring vehicles with heavy to light amounts of damage, including totaled cars.
You can search our inventory without an account, but you’ll be able to bid and have access to additional features when you log into your IAA account. Register for a free account on our used car auction app, or visit our site at www.iaai.com to sign up. Search by make and model, then browse and filter our extensive inventory of cars up for auction. Use IAA 360 View to get complete details of the interior and exterior of every vehicle, then see and hear the engine running with our IAA Interact™ Merchandising Platform . IAA Interact combines imagery, information and personalization to deliver detailed vehicle information with unmatched research tools, improved purchasing guidance and greater transparency.

Horrible unstable app, if you let your phone screen turn off or switch the app lets say to answer a text message and then you come back to the app your search is gone and you have to start from scratch. Also when you select the filters sometimes it does filter and MOST of the times it won't, for example you filter "buy now" and "run and drive" and then it shows only run and drive but not the buy now, or the other way around so you have to shut down and open the app like 5 times to make it work

To all of the users complaining about the auction list just looping back to the same cars, you can avoid that by scrolling all the way down to the last car, then work back to the top. It's annoying, but at least it makes it workable. To the company/ developers, the app is slow, the above referenced problem is very annoying, and the live bidding response is too slow to be really effective. Other than that, I love the ability to bid on cars all over the country.
