Facility Access & Auction Sales:

The main priorities for our auction family are safety of our stakeholders and delivering the best service in the industry to our customers. In that regard, here are a few updates and procedural announcements for our auction based on local and state mandates from our governor.

  • Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction will have a Digital Sale hosted on Edge Pipeline on Tuesday, March 31st. 150 units will be auctioned through our lane 6 bay.

  • If you need to deliver or pick up a vehicle you may come to the gate between 10 am and 2 PM, Monday through Thursday. The gate personnel will bring the vehicle to you and only one customer can be helped until the transaction is complete.

  • Any payments must be made electronically, such as faxing or texting your check or wire transfer. Titles will be sent to you by mail or overnight services. You may call the office and make arrangements between 9 AM and 2 PM Monday through Friday.

  • Our sales staff will be available to help you prepare vehicles for our on line platforms.

  • No visitors of any kind will be allowed in the auction.

  • Any vehicles sold after March 17 will be subject to 60 days for title arbitration instead of the current 30 days.
  • All online convenience fees will be waived until further notice.

We thank you for your patience, loyalty, and vigilance during this difficult time. Remember, we are all in this together and our success depends on your success.
