Edge Pipeline & Velocicast
We are on Edge Pipeline, a joint website comprised of a group of independent auctions across the country dedicated to dealers. On the Pipeline, you can view cars not only at Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction, but also at other member auctions. View pre-sale catalogs, no sale lists, market reports, and your account information. You can do a quick search for a specific vehicle too. A simple click will give you access to our simulcast events each week via the Pipeline. Please review our simulcast policies and fees before placing a bid. All green light online purchases under 175,000 miles are subject to a 7-Day $115 Buyer Protection Plan described in the policies.
Now Accepting Credit Cards
Dealers may now use their major credit cards (with a 4% fee) to pay for Buyer Protection Plans and any balance on their AR (Accounts Receivable). Credit card payments will not be accepted for anything other than BPP's or AR.

How it Works:
Secure your room at one of the following preferred hotels. Ask for the Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction corporate rate. Call our office during business hours and ask for the Marketing Department for assistance. We will accept receipts for other hotels but cannot secure reservations with other establishments.
Attend the auction and submit proof of hotel stay to the Marketing Department via original receipt showing name of traveler and dates of travel.
Based on the criteria listed above, a travel reimbursement check will be available for pick up in the Marketing Department on the dealer’s first auction visit after sale in which expenses were incurred. All reimbursement checks will be made payable to the company that the dealer represents. The auction will not be responsible for any charges that result from a cancelled reservation or disputes between the traveler and the hotel.
