You should buy your next used car at auction

Posted by

Online auto actions at Copart are widely known as one of the best sources for salvaged vehicles, but we’ve grown our offerings greatly since the days when we gained that reputation.

Almost every kind of vehicle in every condition can be found on our platform and at our locations. Many of them would make ideal daily drivers for the budget conscious and/or mechanically inclined. Here are a few facts you may not know about why you should get your next used car at auction.

We Sell Daily Drivers at Online Auto Auctions

Along with salvaged cars like those totaled by insurance companies, we also deal in near new and good condition vehicles from rental car companies, government agencies, fleet operators, charities and even vehicle dealers.

These cars have often benefited from professional fleet management, regular and preventative maintenance, and even regular washing and detailing.

Many of these cars make great daily drivers at a very reasonable price. Some are ready to drive, and some just need a little bit of work before they hit the road again.

Brands range from the common, like Toyota, Honda and Nissan, to exotics like Rolls Royce, Jaguar, BMW and Mercedes Benz.

We Have Options Beyond Auctions

If you don’t want to bid at an auction, you can also search for cars that are Buy it Now and Make an Offer. Buy It Now cars have a price the seller will accept. Make an Offer allows you to extend an offer you think the buyer might accept. All Buy It Now cars include the option for Make an Offer.  You can search for Buy it Now cars on our Vehicle Finder tool (or by clicking on the links above.)

You Can Buy Without a License

Many states and provinces will let you bid directly, while others may require you to work though someone with a business or dealer’s license. We can easily help you find such a middleman, and a transporter to get your car anywhere in the US or the world.

We Have Options Beyond Cars

Along with the Copart brand, we use our proprietary VB3 auction technology to sell other specialty vehicle types. Under CashforCars,com, Copart buys and sells cars directly from and to consumers. Under CrashedToys.com, the company sells motorcycles and powersports vehicles in a similar range of conditions. Similarly, under the National Powersports Auction, Copart provides auction related services to powersports dealers across the US.

We recently started running a national ad campaign to highlight the classic cars available on our platform. We have had some gorgeously restored classics from the ‘50s ‘60s and 70’s come up for sale. We’ve also seen some perfect platforms for restoration projects, too.

We Have Convenient Locations Around the Globe

Copart operates in 11 countries, including the US and Canada, the UK, Germany, Ireland, Brazil, Spain, Dubai, Bahrain, Oman and Finland.

You can get started in three easy steps. Register for an account, confirm your details and documents, and then select your membership plan. Then you can start searching, bidding and buying.

In Conclusion

The bottom line is that Copart has many ways to get you behind the wheel of a decent driver at an affordable price regardless of your situation, location and background. The next time you recognize the need, we hope we’ll see you on the site.
