Richmond Auto Auction – We’re Driven by Your Success!

A brief history: 

In 1967, Dick and Pokey Motley began Motley’s Auctions in a Chester, Virginia dairy barn. They continued operations over the years at several locations, including the renowned U.S. Route 1 “Wigwam” in Glen Allen, Virginia, just north of Richmond. When Dick retired in 1988, his son Mark Motley took over the family business, and shortly thereafter, founded Richmond Auto Auction.
