About the Company

Business is a sensitive thing

It goes where it is wanted, stays where it is cared for, and grows where it is cultivated. I truly believe that dealers not only attend ABC auctions for the inventory that we provide, but just as important, they feel welcomed as members of the family. From our general managers to our block clerks, we know our customers by name; Often times, we know their families too. They aren't a "number" at ABC.

Auction Broadcasting Company

Auction Broadcasting Company Headquarters

Founded by auto auction veteran, Mike Hockett, in 2000. Hockett who was the founder of ADESA Auctions has been in the auto auction business since 1964 after taking over his father's auction business. Auction Broadcasting Company was based on Hockett’s vision to provide dealers with the ability to bid live from the comfort of their office against other bidders in the lane at the auction. This vision has changed the auto auction industry, real estate, and liquidation auctions in a dramatic way.

Auction Broadcasting Company is a full service auto auction company offering transportation, full and partial reconditioning, telemarketing, in-house restaurants, world class auctioneers and ringman, on-line bidding capability, and managers that are car people. We have Auto Ims in all our locations to provide simple and seamless communication to our captive finance and fleet consignors. For customers that unfortunately do not get their vehicle sold in the lane live on sale day, ABC also provides you with an additional seven thousand online bidders who can view your vehicle.

Finally, abc’s Corporate staff offers you over one hundred years of auction service and experience. Our entire staff will work diligently to provide you with an excellent and successful experience. Please visit us at any ABC location and see why ABC is America’s fastest growing auto auction company.

We hope to see you soon!
