Heritage

NAMA is the RMI’s motor auction association.  NAMA joined the RMI in 1969 under its former identity – the Society of Motor Auctions (SMA).  The SMA became NAMA in 2011.

Being part of a larger trade association brings a number of benefits to NAMA members, including access to a legal service and commercial benefits as well as the ability to liaise with other RMI trade bodies such as franchised dealers.

NAMA is a continuously evolving organisation representing a dynamic and changing industry.  NAMA publish a monthly auction report giving an up to date view of market conditions.  NAMA also develops initiatives for its members such as a common grading standard for vehicles being sold at auction.

Finally, all members on joining the association sign up to the NAMA Code of Practice, giving security and peace of mind to all auction customers.
