About Us

Premier Auto Auctions

VinHammer founders Jeremy Tepper and Michael Hoegerl have been passionate vehicle collectors for over two decades. They have shared a mutual interest in the collector Jeep community and enjoy chasing and uncovering some of the finest examples in the world. They have been fortunate to meet countless enthusiasts across the US.

The development of online vehicle sales has changed the buying, selling, and connecting of people across the world, but Jeremy and Mike often discussed the struggles of buying and selling vehicles on existing online auction platforms. The current options often lack speed, control, and options robust options. To fill the gap, they decided to find solutions to existing problems in the industry. In the middle of 2021, they enlisted the help of software engineers, website designers, and marketing experts to assist in the development of VIN Hammer™, setting the stage for a new leader in the online auction community.
