National Powersport Auctions (NPA) launched its seventh live auction facility in Sacramento, California, on March 14, with a bang. The 38,000 square-foot facility was packed with dealers from Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, Canada and beyond. More than 275 powersports vehicles went under the gavel, with the highest bidder count per unit of any NPA opening.
“The first NPA Sacramento auction was far and away the strongest opening I’ve experienced during my time at NPA,” said NPA’s director of business development, Tony Altieri. “Auction activity and dealer attendance were off the charts! The facility was buzzing all day.”
Strategically located to serve dealers in Northern California, the Pacific Northwest and Canada, NPA Sacramento’s first auction brought in a full house. Of the more than 260 bidders, local dealers were matched by dealers nationwide and through the magic of the NPA Simulcast dealers in Canada, Europe and Asia logged on to watch the auction.
“We’ve talked about a Northern California site for years. After a lot of careful planning and hard work, we are very excited to see it all come together. Our Sacramento team is dialed into NPA’s process and fully understands our mission to support all of our clients and customers with integrity and respect,” said Cliff Clifford, NPA’s founder and CEO.
Things were really rocking on both preview day and auction day. According to Jeff Kinney, NPA’s vice president of operations, “Attendance on the floor was strong all day with many dealers choosing to stick around until the last hammer was dropped. We’re extremely proud of our team in Sacramento and the staff members that came in from Dallas, Madison and San Diego to assist. Because of their collective efforts, today was a massive success. I can’t wait to see the official Grand Opening in May.”
NPA Sacramento will be running two lanes in April to accommodate even more units. The next live auction will be Thursday, April 18. Transportation trucks are now running weekly in and out of the Sacramento facility, so buying and selling through NPA is as easy as ever.
