NPA Sacramento Sets Sales Record for Auction Debut

National Powersport Auctions opened the doors of its Sacramento, Calif., location this month and the debut auction was the largest opening of any of its facilities, the company announced.

The 38,000 square-foot facility held its first auction on March 14, and more than 275 powersports vehicles were sold, with the highest bidder count per unit of any NPA opening. The ratio of dealers to units was “just short” of a one-to-one ratio, Vice President of Marketing Ryan Keefe told Powersports Finance.

More than 260 bidders were active throughout the auction, with local dealers, nationwide dealers, and — through NPA Simulcast — dealers in Canada, Europe, and Asia participating in the auction, according to a press release.

The Sacramento location is the seventh of NPA’s auction facilities. It is strategically located to expand the company’s reach in California and give it access to the Pacific Northwest, Chief Operating Officer Jim Woodruff previously told PSF.

NPA Sacramento will be running two more lanes in April to accommodate more units. The next live auction will be April 18.
