Frequently Asked Questions

Can I look at the items?

Yes, and in fact, we encourage you to visit. Although Copart and IAAI provides photos  and accurate descriptions for each vehicle, any information provided is for convenience only. Why not go that extra step for additional peace of mind and visit a Copart location to see the vehicle in person? You do need to be a member of Copart to get inside and look at the items but you can sign up free membership to do this. Many of the Copart locations only have certain hours that Public members can view the cars so make sure you check your local lot for info on the days and times.If you’re unable to visit us in person, copart will  provide a list of inspection services for you to use. These inspectors are not Copart employees and would be working as third-party professionals on your behalf to help you make informed buying decisions.

So it says “runs and drives”, does that mean nothing is wrong with it?

Not necessarily, it might run and drive but it might get hot or third gear might be out of it so we suggest you inspect it. As a rule of thumb we always bid a price that we know we can fix anything on it and still be under book value.

What are the fees?

We simply provide advertising services. We do not charge fees but Copart.com who provides the cars does have several fees and brokers often add their own fees. Please visit Copart.com to see a full list of fees.

In addition to the bid amount Copart charges some fees based on the sale price. They also charge a $59 gate fee and a internet bid fee which is:
