After months of construction, the team at ADESA Kansas City was finally able to reveal the auction’s new powersports building.

The much-anticipated first sale included nearly 250 units from both commercial accounts and dealers. Customers came from all over the country—California, Michigan, Cincinnati, Texas and Tennessee—to be part of this event, while a transportation assistance bonus encouraged tons of online participation.

“A lot of effort went into making this sale such a success, and the staff did an incredible job,” said Jane Morgan, president of the ADESA specialty sales division, praising General Manager Harold Chapman and his team.

“Last year was a great year for ADESA Specialty because of the growth from commercial/bank customers and the specialty dealers consigning over-aged inventory to sell,” Morgan noted in a recent article in Motorcycle & Powersports News. “If our customers’ estimates for volume in 2016 are accurate, we should have another growth year. We have been very busy in early 2016 and are pumped for what is still to come.”

With a strong buyer base in Kansas City, including numerous Harley-Davidson authorized and independent dealers, this facility is a welcome addition to the community.

ADESA Kansas City’s powersports building is designed to store the units as they wait for the monthly sale. Additionally, it’s strategically located adjacent to the auction arena so the vehicles are protected from the elements as they enter the lanes.

While one member of the ADESA Kansas City team is dedicated solely to meeting the needs of the powersports sale, the entire auction is excited to be part of this great new investment.
