Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction Holds 15-Year Celebration

Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction is celebrating its 15th Anniversary in May. The company has seen major growth since its inception in 2002. With a modest beginning in a portable building selling only a couple dozen cars its first few weeks, the auction has grown into one of the industry leaders on the Gulf Coast consigning 700+ units weekly and employing 110+ people. 

The reason for the success and growth of the auction is its employees and culture of giving back, observes John Poteet, Managing Partner. The staff operates as a cohesive team and practices first class service both internally and externally. 

"Our team is made up of the best people in the industry who practice, on a daily basis, our company motto: outstanding service begins with outstanding people," explains Poteet. 

Assistant General Manager Jacob Warren says, "Our team is eager and always looking forward to the next opportunity to service our customers' remarketing needs. We continue to innovate as we grow to better anticipate and exceed the expectations of our customers." 

In preparation for its 15th Anniversary, Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction recently added a new carwash and a state-of-the-art technology upgrade.

Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction believes in investing back in its community as well. The auction has several employees who volunteer their time on a regular basis to various charities in the region. The auction also hosts and sponsors many charity events throughout the year. To date the auction has raised just shy of $500,000 for deserving charities. 

"Giving back is ingrained into our culture here at Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction, and we believe in serving not only our customers, but our community as well," says Fleet Lease Manager Michael McCollum. 

In its 15 year history the auction has held over 700 sales selling more than 200,000 units, with over 75,000 bidders in attendance. 

The auction's 15-year anniversary celebration will be on May 23 at 8:45am, and will include 1000 units and $25,000 in John Dough Prizes. The auction will also host its traditional crawfish boil immediately following the sale, preparing over over 1,000 pounds of the Cajun delicacy. 

Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction is located in Hammond, Louisiana, and serves the entire Gulf South and surrounding states. Their entire staff goes above and beyond to make sure everyone attending has the best auction experience in the industry. It's no doubt that this auction has many more anniversary celebrations in its future. From a portable building to a 15,000 square ft. facility on 35 acres with 6 lanes, a mechanic shop, and fully mechanized carwash, this auction is truly a valuable gem of the auction industry. Auction day is Tuesday at 8:45am.
