I've bought two vehicles through Copart--no real problems. The first, was up in Oregon; bought it, had to pay for storage (my bad; didn't get it out in the allotted time), and had it shipped to my back door. It was as expected. The second came from Minnesota; went up and got it myself. One of the employees drove it right onto my trailer--it was as expected, too. We're about to buy a little motorcycle off of them, too. Buyers can set "filters" before searching through the inventory; we always choose "Runs and Drives"--this means (verbatim): "At the time the vehicle arrived at Copart's facility, Copart verified that the vehicle (i) started,(ii) could be put into gear, and (iii) was capable of moving forward under its own power. There is no guarantee, representation, or warranty that the vehicle is in roadworthy condition or can be driven lawfully upon the highways of any state." Buyers just need to be more aware of their purchases; look thoroughly at the pictures, read the information, and learn the site's details. If you are in question--Go Look At The Item Before Buying!!

DONT BUY FROM COPART.COM IS THE WORST SALVAGE AUTO AUCTION ON THE MARKET, THEY SELL NOTHING BUT CRAP, MOST OF THE CARS THAT THEY SELL ARE FROM PRIVATE SELLERS AND THEY LOOK GOOD FROM THE OUTSIDE BUT WHEN YOU PICK THEM UP IS A PIECE OF SHIT..

For anyone that may stumble upon this forum BEFORE making their first purchase on Copart you may see lots of conflicting information.

While some people end up with "deals", the truth is most of what they sell really is junk - not to be insulting, it is what it is.

They really do hire some really incompetent people led my incompetent management. There are some exceptions to this, as there many good people that work for this company but they're definitely in the minority these days.

If you're a dealer and can flip a bad car on someone else, fine. If you're an individual looking to save a few bucks you should find somewhere else to buy your car. Chances are you're going to get burnt with someone else's problem car.

Well after reading all those negative complaints there is no point in looking at coparts website, because scamers are the worst of the worst in people, thank you all for the good advise!

It's just plain funny that someone with your spelling and grammar could call anyone "retarded". You may be a smart person but you sure don't write like one.

Thanks for making me laugh out loud today!

I make my living rebuilding copart cars. My buyers know what they are getting, I buy them back if an idiot third party driving an 82 chevy that used to work in a body shop five years ago sours the deal. Rebuilt cars aren't for you rooks trying to save a buck. A properly rebuilt car will give you many years of service at a reduced price.You rooks posting here know nothing about cars and this system. I have bought about 500 cars and trucks from copart and sold them to 500 satisfied customers. Seven were sold to rooks like you with no money and I bought them back and sold them to people who appreciate them. I get stung once in a while by copart but that is life. once you learn what to look for that incidence goes down. It takes 1 to 4 thousand dollars to fix a total if you do the work yourself. Grow up people.

yah u didn't. You can't buy anything from copart for $50. Problem with copart and iaa is they where a dealer only auction up until a few years ago now the open to the public. Corporate greed most people at least the ones on here are for a lack of a better term are fucking retarted. They want to get a deal so bad that they fail to look into it . They see a car on a lot that has been inspected ready to drive w/warranty for $30000 the. See one at copart for $15000 they fail to understand that a business has to buy this fix all the lil shit wrong w/ it sit on it. the whole time paying intrest lot rent employee water heat phone advertising tools someone smart enuff to use the tools ect that cost money. It's not coparts fault your a liberal dumb ass.

I got 2 cars for Crashescars.com which is also an auction with salvage cars for sale like Copart, and I didn't have any issues or problems with the vihicles I got there (after I repaired them of course). Moreover if you need to buy a donor car salvage auto auctions are the best place for it.

Wow an "auto auction“ website that doesn't have anything besides used iPads for sale doesn't exactly create a sense of legitimacy. Copart may not be the best place to buy a vehicle but at least they're a legitimate company that won't take your money and run.

There is nothing wrong with the company. if you go to facility and look with some knowledge you will be fine. a friend and I have bought over 30 cars from them with little problems. you have to do a little research. we have made over 20k profit from fixing and selling their cars.

Lots of complaints above and mistakes made. I passed on a car after an inspection. Cost 400$. I bought a crushed roof Taurus and have 4,500 in it and it is a total GEM. I bought a car with "not actual mileage" and have 3,000 in it and it is worth 2200. Here are some rules to follow.

1. Never buy one sight unseen.
2. Inspect it yourself.
3. Check it out completely.
4. Do not buy a car that does not run.
5. Bid on the car from the facility.
6. Bring a stethescope with you to listen to the vitals .
7.Bring an electrical analyzer with you like the type they have at Auto Zone.
8. Have them drive the car to you by driving it.
9. Before you bid you can have them drive it up to the office.
10. Do any additional precautionary measures you need to. These cars are often a steal Good Luck George

I have bought several cars from Co-Part. None lately, I learn slowly. A Cadillac a few years back looked really clean was listed as a theft recovery. Actually it was a police impound. The tires and wheels had been repoed and because the car was very clean inside and out the Keys had been tossed so it was listed as TMU. I had keys made at the dealer and took those and a set of tires and wheels up to pick up the car. The power wire was cut at the ignition switch. The car was running when it was impounded and had had four people in it. All the police paperwork was in the glove box.
It looked good until the forklift driver came flying around the building to pick up the car. He didn't bother to slow down. Collapsed the bumper struts, broke a headlight and buckled the Right fender. Pushing the bumper cover back aganist the tire. It wasn't until we got it home that I found the cut wire, otherwise I could have driven it back-except for the broken headlight and the bumper cover rubbing the tire. When I repaired the cut wire at the ignition switch everything worked including the odometer which showed 183K miles No wonder they tossed the keys.

The Last Car I bough from Co-Part was a 2003 Ford Windstar. Clean title , Clean carFax-which in my opinion are a waste of time. When I got the car I couldn't help but notice that it had had an interior burn. When it was repaired they put the wrong interior in the van. Airbag lites are always on. interior lites have never worked. some of the electrical wiring and heater wiring and vacuum tubing I had to replace. Headliner is not the right one for that van.
The Co-Part yord manager was a friend of the so-called builder, so the builder would run his "rebuilt" cars thru Co-Part. Neat.

You are incompetent to think you where actually getting a deal on a perfect car... I mean if you look at the pictures you can see its a junk yard! if you have no common sense with cars just buy from a dealer... if you cant afford a new or preowned car then learn to work on cars because you will thank your self, so will your wallet, and so will the time you wasted like you did in this experiance... im sorry you got "scammed" because you didnt understand everything... thats why scams happen...

TRUTH IS DAT MOST OF US WANTED A STEAL, NOT NECESSARY A BUY. BUT WHO AMONG US CAN HONESTLY SAY DAT BUYING A CAR U DID NOT PHYSICAL INSPECT IS THE BEST WAY TO GO. HOWEVER, COPART PROBLEM IS DAT THEY PROVIDE LITTLE OR NO SUPPORT SERVICES TO BUYERS. COPART SHOULD ALLOW BUYERS TO COME IN THE YARD, OK COPART DOSE DAT. BUT CAN COPART ALLOW BUYER TO COME WITH A CUSTOMER AND WILL NOT CHARGE THE CUSTOMER?, AND IF A CAR IS DRIVABLE WHY DO U HAVE TO FORK IT? I THINK COPART IS PRACTICING ZERO MODIFICATION TYPE OF POLICY AND TO ME, IT SUCKS. IF I AM TO BE IN COPART MANAGEMENT....OH! GOODNESS ME, THE STORY WILL NOT BE D SAME. NOW, I HAVE BEEN BUYING FROM COPART FOR 7YEARS. AND MINE IS NOT SUCH A SAD STORY, AND WHEN MY CUSTOMERS BUYS FROM COPART, I MAKE SURE I GUIDE WELL. COPART IS A GOOD PLACE TO DO BUSINESS, BUT U MUST KNOW WHAT U BUYING, AND THERE ARE WAYS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT COULD BE A LEMON....IF NOTHING ELSE, TRY TO PRAY BEFORE YOU BID.......AND I MEANT IT. BID CAREFULLY FRIENDS

After reading a few comments I can add to all of this. Dealing with copart for several years I learned hard way some of the truth. I would recommend each one to use this guide as it will help you not to be burned over a bad deal.
Majority vehicle being sold through copart is insurance company vehicles, but most individuals (not dealers)do not want to buy wrecked vehicle and that's where so called dealers take big advantage of that.
So first step if you lime a vehicle and you want to buy call copart branch where vehicle is located and tell them to fax you copy of a title, if you will ask them over the phone they will not tell you who is the seller but they must fax it if you requested it. So once you have a copy of a title and you see that it's a dealer who is selling better not buy it you will most likely have a major problem with this car. Think always of that how come dealer want to sell through copart that is being sold as-is rather that through eBay or other advertisement answer to that no liability. So please do not bid if it's a dealer vehicle same goes for everything not just vehicles.
Second step, avoid some of the locations,this goes go Newburgh, NY, Atlanta West, Miami, Los Angeles branches, this is where dealers love to turn there no good junk into. Also remember that if it's a dealer car they can shill bid which means that they will raise artificially raise a bid using their buddy account.
Now most importantly know your rights. If a car being sold as a run and drive and when you come there and its nothin and drive copart must refund you back, if there is no keys with vehicle they must refund you back. Copart may and will probably say it's
not that way but believe me it is.
This is knowledge of a several years of dealing with copart. It's a good company overall but some dealers make this company look bad. When I want to buy anything from it I call them ask to fax me a copy of a title and again if I see that it's a dealer car does not matter how good it looks pass it DO NOT BUY it its an insurance buy it. The best thing is to go and look at the car before you buy because pictures can show so much it's usually always the case that there is more damage that you can see on pictures expect this.
hopefully this will help good luck
