We would like to introduce ourselves to you and let you know a little about us. We are a family owned and ran business. Our founder is Gary L. Petersen. He managed Western Auto Wrecking for his Father Click Petersen and Uncle Don Petersen from 1968 -1978. In 1978 he wholesaled cars and started Western Affiliated Salvage Auction. 1981 he brought the business from his father, Uncle and also purchased another company called Sandy Metal Works. 1997 Co-part and Pick N Pull decided they had to have two of our businesses, Western Auto Wrecking and Western Affiliated Salvage Auction. Our original dealer bond was issued in 1946 and is still current. Gary is currently serving on the Governor’s Automotive Advisory board and has been since 1988. We are a long standing business which is family oriented with high work ethics and values.
Some of our valued business friends are Larry H. Miller, Jay Brasher (Brasher’s Auto Auction), Bob Spence (Spence Enterprises), and Willis Johnson (Copart). We have a long working relationship with the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division; Kent Jorgensen (Director), and Kip Ingersoll (Asst. Director).
Many know Linda, Chad, Jennifer and Robyn. We have worked in the industry for many years. Linda fills in on all levels of the business since day one. Chad managed Lander Motors in Wyoming along with many other areas of the trade. Jennifer is our back office and accounting guro. Robyn has worked in the Auction business since she could walk.
We saw a need in Saint George for an auction and since auctions were second nature to us we decided to start Southern Utah Auto Auction. We appreciate you giving us the opportunity serving you and please do not hesitate if you have any questions. With your support we can be a success, service you and our community.
