    INDUSTRY pioneer HMR Auto Auction celebrated its third year of operations by opening the country’s biggest purpose-built auto auction facility in Bicutan, Paranaque and holding its biggest auction yet, with over 250 vehicles available for live public bidding.

    The new facility can hold up to 450 vehicles and can accommodate up to 300 bidders, providing a space for buyers to bid on a wide range of premium used vehicles.

    HMR first opened its doors in 2016 by establishing the first auto auction facility in the country and has since sold over 4,000 vehicles through its online and live public auctions.

    The grand opening auctioned motorcycles, compacts, sedans, MPVs, pickup trucks, SUVs, and even light commercial trucks from known brands. HMR showed its appreciation to its bidders and other attendees with food, games and prizes, raffle draws, vendor promos and giveaways.

    HMR, in partnership with UnionBank, offers affordable financing options with monthly payments that can go as low as P4,000 down payments of 30 percent of bid price. Other services found at the one-stop shop include insurance, detailing and repair services, making it easy for a newly auctioned car to be in top shape before it leaves the yard.

    “We are grateful for our buyers who continue to attend and support our monthly auctions.

    We started HMR Auto Auction three years ago with the goal of making the bidding process for second hand cars easier, safer, more transparent and more affordable, and we are thankful that we are able to continue our mission, and even provide a bigger venue and more finance options for our bidders,” Sam Powell, CEO of HMR Auctions said, HMR already held its 2nd auto auction last January 18 at its newly opened facility, located at ACSIE Compound, KM 16 West Service Road, Paranaque City, with over 100 cars up for bidding.
