Top 5 Things to Know about International Shipping with Copart

Posted by


Let’s say you live outside of the United States and have been searching vehicles on the Copart website. You saw the vehicle you wanted, you placed your bid, and you just won the vehicle in auction. Now what?

Recently, our international Members have been asking many questions about Copart’s shipping services and how we get your vehicles from point A to point B.

To help reduce some of the confusion about international shipping, here are a few FAQs:

1. Why does it take so long to ship my vehicle?

Chances are, if you’re waiting for your vehicle, we are still processing it. On average, international shipping takes two to three weeks. In some cases, it might take even longer.

What we’re doing is first confirming that payment on the vehicle was received. Once that is done, the vehicle goes through its consolidation process, whereby the vehicles are loaded in a shipping container with other cargo that you or another Member purchased. After consolidation happens, it’s on its way to you!

2. I buy vehicles at different Copart locations. Do I have to look for local transport?

Nope! If we ship, we will arrange everything.

3. Can you write a lower value of the car on the invoice?

Absolutely not.

4. I live in _____. Can you ship vehicles to my country?

More than likely we can, but to be sure, check our shipping locations here.

5. I didn’t see my country on your shipping page. Can you still ship?
