POWAY, Calif., Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- National Powersport Auctions (NPA), a Copart platform, announced that its new facility at 6474 Blanchars Crossing, DeForest, Wis. 53598 (phone: 608-416-1096) near Madison, Wisconsin is now open for business. As home to the University of Wisconsin and industry events such as the Parts Unlimited NVP Product Expo, Madison is a compelling location for NPA.
"Why did we choose Madison? To make it easier for our dealers to do business with us," said NPA Chief Operating Officer Jim Woodruff. "Madison is the state capital and is near Chicago, Minneapolis and Milwaukee. This puts us much closer to our customers in the region and makes buying and selling through NPA more convenient."
NPA Madison auctions powersport vehicles and is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The first live auction at the new location is Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018 at 9 a.m. CT. Like all NPA live auctions, dealers can bid in person or online via NPA's Simulcast software. To register with National Powersport Auctions, please visit www.npauctions.com.
Woodruff added, "NPA's new Madison location reduces the time to auction for all NPA stakeholders in the region." NPA's sixth live auction facility is only 10 minutes from Dane County Regional Airport. "There are several flights between Madison and our other locations, making this new location readily accessible for out of state Buyers and Sellers."
"With the 66,000 sq. ft. facility, we are projecting 600-800 units for our future live auctions," Woodruff said. Because of the location, the mix of units will be more diverse. "Maybe it's fate, a coincidence or a fluke, but our first vehicle in Madison, Wisconsin, was a snowmobile," he added.
The state of Wisconsin requires all dealers (including out of state) to have a Wisconsin Buyer's License to purchase auction vehicles in the state of Wisconsin. Interested applicants can click here to apply for Wisconsin Buyer's License. For those who register, NPA credits the state's application fee. For questions about the application, call NPA at 608-416-1096 or the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) at 608.266.1425.
