Auto Auction was founded by Robert E. Thompson in 1983. His son, Rob, soon joined him in the business and together they have watched
the facility grow from a one-lane outdoor auction located in a
creamery to an ultra-modern, four-lane facility on sixty eight acres
serving dealers from across the United States.
Auto Auction is located in "the very heart of used car
country," approximately 150 miles northwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul,
and welcomes new and used car dealers, fleet/lease accounts, banks
and finance companies to its weekly Friday sales. With a reputation
for fairness to both buyer and seller, a friendly, courteous staff,
and a modern facility enhanced by the most current technology
systems, Mid-State Auto Auction is a leader in the region, dedicated
to offering the highest levels of auction service.
