About Fort Wayne Auto Truck Auction, LLC
Established in 1984, Fort Wayne Auto Truck Auction, LLC was the nation’s first stationary auction for heavy-duty trucks. It remains a leading marketplace for commercial vehicles, as well as a wide array of automobiles — including many that have been repossessed or turned in at the end of a lease.
Today, our weekly auto auctions and biweekly truck auctions draw bidders from across the world, and we provide a full array of services to ensure buyers and sellers get a world-class auction experience.
Industry pioneer Carl Miskotten and his partners broke new ground when they founded what was then called Fleet Vehicle Auction. For the first time, trucking companies, owners, operators, and dealers had a permanent auction site with regularly scheduled heavy-truck auctions.
The dealers-only auto auction followed shortly afterward, providing a robust remarketing option for leasing companies and car dealers. In the decades since then, our knowledgeable staff — some of whom have been here from the start — have continued to build the thriving business.
In the mid-1990s, the Fort Wayne operation was purchased by ADT Auctions and then sold to Manheim Auctions Inc. Miskotten and the original team reacquired the auction in 2012. Today it is home to the most knowledgeable vehicle remarketers in the country.
Whatever you’re buying or selling — RVs, boats, cars, or heavy trucks and equipment — Fort Wayne Auto Truck Auction will exceed your expectations.
