Following immediately on the heels of National Powersport Auctions’ (NPA) seventh live auction grand opening in Sacramento, CA, the company announced another expansion. NPA Portland is the second strategically located satellite processing center intended to simplify transportation and logistics and enhance the convenience of buying and selling for NPA dealers.
“The Pacific Northwest has a great powersports scene, and frankly it has been underserved from a pre-owned perspective,” said NPA COO Jim Woodruff. “With our NPA Portland satellite facility we can better serve dealers in Oregon, Washington and even Canada… and do it more cost effectively. The Pacific Northwest is a great powersports market with plenty of potential.”
Designed to work in tandem with NPA’s new Sacramento facility, NPA Portland can accommodate up to 300 units a month. Everything from NPA’s class leading condition reports and standard services to repairs and online auctions are available on site.
“Our satellite facilities have the capability to handle all the functions of our seven live auction facilities, including NPA eSale, other than the live auctions themselves,” explained Woodruff. “Live auction units located in NPA Portland will run remotely in our live NPA Sacramento auctions.”
A key function of NPA Portland is the inter-facility transfer of units and the collection and staging of vehicles from throughout the entire Pacific Northwest.
“Our transportation and logistics team can now get units into Sacramento or any of our other six live auction centers quickly and economically,” added Tony Altieri, NPA director of business development. “This should appeal to all our current dealers and lenders as well as those looking to do business with NPA.”
“NPA is here to better serve both buying and selling dealers throughout the Pacific Northwest and the entire country,” noted Woodruff. “Our new satellite facility in Portland, the success of NPA Sacramento, and the future expansion plans we have in the works are all intended to make it easier for our customers to do business.”
