At MAST we set clear quantitative goals for our customers and their salvage inventory resale performance.  We track productivity, measure our impact to the bottom line, and provide detailed monthly and YTD reporting for true measurable results. 

Increased Gross Returns


In 2013, MAST brought more than $2 million in rerun gain dollars back to its customers.  That averaged to an additional $94.56  for every vehicle sold through auction or an overall improvement of 1.36% increase in gross return dollars.




"I have the privilege to work with Jim Hissong and the folks at MAST, and find them to be very engaged in our company's salvage recovery results. Their wealth of insurance experience and knowledge in salvage recovery, contributes to their ability to identify and act on opportunities and challenges. The in-depth information they are able to provide and their communication and presentation skills are excellent. I would highly recommend Jim and MAST as an asset to any company's salvage department."

“Jim [CEO MAST, LLC] is extremely knowledgeable about the salvage industry and trends, and has a strong ability to organize a group of people to efficiently manage salvage inventory and paperwork, as well as maximize salvage recoveries. Jim empowers others to produce results that exceed expectations, and allows them to work autonomously to achieve the goals at hand. He is detail-oriented, which leads to his success in the salvage field.”

Right Decisions.  Right Time.


Our goal at MAST is to improve gross returns for our customers through auction without negatively impacting other aspects of the claim process or auction environment.  We carefully monitor our affect on cycle time and pay close attention to our sell / no sell decisions to ensure a healthy relationship with the local and national buyer base.




Maximized Value on All Vehicles Sold through Auction


At MAST we think like the buyer.  We review and consider the value of each vehicle set for sale from the perspective of auto rebuilders, part recyclers, and metal scrappers.  Every vehicle has value.  We don't discriminate based on damage extent or actual cash value.




“I was fortunate to have the experience of working with Jim [CEO MAST, LLC] in both management in Texas and later more directly on salvage initiatives during my tenure as the National Salvage Business Leader at Progressive Insurance. Jim is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of salvage handling. He has a true passion for the industry and the enthusiasm he brings to a team or project makes it a pleasure to work with him. He is innovative in his ideas, his plans are well thought out, and he has strong relationship-building skills. He would make a valued business partner to any organization.”
