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.

Glitchy, crashes, can't sort via zip code. The app should be able to function stand alone as a purchase tool, but no, I still find myself using the desktop version primarily because the app is trash. And with the recent update not allowing you to sort results by zip code, it has become even more cumbersome.

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.

App won't let me log in, it will flash something real quick and start over.. I can go to website and log in but app won't recognize I'm logged in and won't allow me to log in. Plus if you ever search or look at your saved list when you look at a vehicle it starts over every time you go back. You have to jump hurdles just to register and then the fees are higher than anywhere else too. All the issues trying to log in didn't start until the last update took place my phone update 10/01/2021 FIX IT.
