Industry veteran Tim DeBerry has chosen his home state of Colorado as the proving ground for his lifelong dream of building an auto auction.
“Mile High Auto Auction was founded to provide dealers with the absolute best service,” said DeBerry. “My partnership with Loveland Auto Auction owners Scott Read and Bart Barnett is making this happen. We have facilities that will house our auction lanes, our full recon, body and mechanical shops, plus indoor parking for 200+ vehicles -- all located off a main access road in south Denver.”
“Mile High Auto Auction is a great opportunity. A lot of amazing forces have come together to create this auction. There hasn’t been a sale in south Denver in over 25 years (since George Lamb’s Colorado Auto Auction on South Sante Fe)," said Bart Barnett. “It’s an exciting time. We are proud of the experienced team we are putting together.”
According to Scott Read, “Our mutual goal is to consolidate not only our experience, but our combined resources and relationships. With so many dealers and so much car business in this area, we are very excited to be in the best place at the right time.”
Mile High Auto Auction will hold sales every Tuesday at 12:00 noon at their newly renovated facilities at 9750 East Costilla Avenue in Centennial, Colorado. DeBerry added “When we calculated our combined time in the auction business, we realized we’re bringing over a hundred years of experience to Centennial!”
