ATLANTA –-- Manheim’s Total Resource Auctions network of salvage wholesale auctions has expanded to 20 locations nationwide with the addition of TRA Grand Prairie in Texas and TRA Utah in West Bountiful. TRA Grand Prairie, located at Dealers Auto Auction of Dallas, held its first salvage auction on March 20, selling more than 80 percent of the 122 vehicles offered. The auction, which sells an average of 115 vehicles at each salvage sale, hosts TRA sales every other Monday at 3 p.m. The next TRA sale to be held at TRA Grand Prairie is scheduled for Monday, May 1. TRA Utah conducts salvage sales on the second and fourth Fridays of each month at 9 a.m. Five of the auction’s eight lanes are equipped with Manheim Simulcast technology, which enables bidders to participate in live sales from remote locations. TRA allows buyers and sellers to securely exchange damaged, inoperative and salvage vehicles through Manheim’s TRA locations and Web-based products, including Simulcast.
