    Is there really a difference between auto auction companies? Like night and day. In fact, more like the difference between a pitch black night and a bright, no clouds in the sky, sunny day. Let's face it, every business is ran differently and its those differences that define a business. While most auto auctions are very similar, the Greater Mishawaka Auto Auction is that sharp, refreshing contrast that car dealers appreciate. The GMAA differences start with attitude and philosophy and are built on that foundation. They have defined what they believe to be the "Right Sized" Auto Auction, they believe in being a Value Driven Company, they always deliver a Complete and Versatile Inventory of vehicles for their dealers to choose from and they believe in offering Lower Fees to their customers.
    All of this, as well as some other very attractive competitive advantages, add up to making what they call the GMAA Difference.
