Copart now has 200 physical location to facilitate its online salvage auction endeavors. The latest one came aboard on Thursday, representing the company’s 15th location in California.
Copart opened its newest location in Wilmington, Calif., as now the company operates seven locations in southern California.
“More than three decades ago, Copart opened its first yard in California, so it’s only fitting that the landmark opening of our 200th location is also in California,” Copart chief executive officer Jay Adair said in a news release. “I’m extremely proud of the hard work that has gotten us here, and I look forward to continued success.”
In 2002, Copart expanded to 100 locations in the United States. One year later, it opened its first international location in Canada. Today, Copart has operations in 11 countries across five continents.
“A growing global presence is a win for both our sellers and buyers. For our sellers, it improves cycle time and reduces costs. For our buyers, it increases access to a greater volume and variety of vehicles,” Copart president Vinnie Mitz said.
Through Copart’s multi-channel online platform, sellers are linked to potential buyers, and bidders can view location information, search vehicles, place bids and participate in live online vehicle auctions on their mobile devices, tablets and computers.
In addition to conducting online vehicle auctions, Copart is a proud community partner. Visit TeamCopart.com for a glimpse into the many ways that the company supports local, regional and national charities, law enforcement and first responders.
