Pure Sale

If a vehicle is listed as Pure Sale, that means there is no minimum bid or reserve price. The vehicle will be awarded to the highest bidder at the close of bidding during the virtual auction.

Enhanced Vehicle

Vehicles listed as “Enhanced Vehicles” are those where: (i) the seller has authorized Copart to perform an enhancement service to the vehicle such as a wash and vacuum or protective covering or (ii) the vehicle is under a program that gives Copart discretion to use enhancement services to maximize the value of the vehicle. This designation does not guarantee that any enhancement service was completed but rather indicates that qualifying vehicles would likely be enhanced. It is the Member’s responsibility to inspect and verify the use of enhancement services.
