NIGERIA – IAA, Inc., the global digital marketplace connecting vehicle buyers and sellers, has partnered with Nigeria’s Boacon Autos, a general automotive repair business.
As the company’s official partner in Nigeria, Boacon Autos will operate the local IAA Auction Center in the city of Lagos, the most populous Nigerian city.
Through this new alliance, Boacon Autos will provide local services and assistance, helping buyers efficiently purchase vehicles from IAA in the United States.
The company will offer support including bidding assistance, transportation, shipping and importing, reducing risk and increasing convenience for new buyers.
“This new partnership with Boacon Autos will help us meet the demand of the rapidly expanding Nigerian market, the second-largest importer of IAA vehicles,” said John Kett, CEO and President of IAA.
“Extending IAA’s global marketplace, our partners help buyers across the world meet their unique transportation needs.”
