Salvage Auction

Salvage Auction

The URG Salvage Auction is the most established national direct to recycler program, for recyclers and by recyclers.

URG has expanded their auction platform to create efficiencies and improve the buyer’s opportunity to purchase vehicles tailored to their operational needs.


In 2013, URG partnered with Advanced Remarketing Services (ARS) to help continually expand the online auction and provide logistical support for online auto sales. The Auction features both low end total loss vehicles and late model heavy equipment.

THE AUCTION IS OPEN TO ALL URG MEMBERS. There is no cost to set up or view the auction.

ARS facilitates the auction process by creating specific auction profiles for URG Members.

Members determine what types of vehicles they are interested in, identify the areas that they would like to cover and the method of communications that best fits their appetite.
