Buy with confidence and order a PSI on your vehicle purchase. Our trained professionals will inspect your vehicle’s major components so you know if there’s an issue before it arrives at your lot.

Pre-Sale Inspections

Our inspection team will thoroughly assess your vehicle prior to sale day giving your buyers peace of mind.

Buyers Digital Services

Buyers can peruse thousands of pre-auction dealer vehicles that are posted and refreshed daily, so you will always have new inventory to purchase. Buyers create their own inventory “wish list” from units not yet available on any wholesale website or at any auction! We manage the process by locating the inventory you want, facilitating with the seller, notifying you of all counters and responses, and processing your purchases and there is no cost for our inventory location services.

Sellers Digital Services

Sellers can save time and money by listing vehicles directly from their lot, allowing them to wholesale and retail at the same time. We can easily connect to your Inventory Management System to list aged inventory for wholesale on industry platforms all at no cost to you. America’s Auto Auction will manage your vehicle listings, facilitate with the buyer, notify you of all offers and sales, and edit the listings as you sell/move inventory.

Wallace Sanford designed and built The Red Top Auto Auction in 2003. Back then we were a Wednesday night auction that was open to the public with only two lanes. In 2004, we partnered with Mike Hockett and his group of auctions named The Auction Broadcasting Company and became ABC Atlanta’s Red Top Auto Auction. Even now nearly 20 years later, many customers still call us “Red Top.” In 2005, we added two more lanes, ten more acres, moved the public sale to Tuesday night, and started a dealer only sale on Friday. In 2012, we were purchased by Ben Lange and his group of auctions called America’s Auto Auction at which point the name Red Top was dropped and we officially became America’s Auto Auction Atlanta. Wallace retired and I, Corey Sanford the GM since 2008, closed the Tuesday night public sale to focus on our ever-growing, Friday morning dealer-only sale. In January of 2022, we were purchased by The XLerate Group and proudly became one of their many auctions across the country! Nineteen years later, we sell around 500 vehicles every Friday with the sale beginning weekly at 9:00 a.m.
