Gardena, CA

Stockton, CA

Two Convenient California Locations

We opened our first location in Southern California in 1993 and quickly grew to become one of the largest auto auctions in the area. In fact, our Gardena, CA location is the only dealer only independent auction between Santa Barbara to Orange County. Due to our strong success in expanding the Gardena location, we opened our second fully operational auto auction location in Stockton, CA to support the Northern California market.
