I won my first auction bidding on Copart! This is my experience. I hope that some of you can learn from this, and have a better understanding of what to expect when bidding.

      Like the fees are a surprise,, they are listed on the website you just need to ,,,I don’t know LOOK. For gods sake a $5000 winning bid will cost you like $6500-$7000 Copart fees are crazy high, god forbid you don’t pick it up in 3 days.

      Thanks for sharing your experience. Anyone attempting this MUST do their do diligence! If the Ins company says totaled it's for a reason. Too large an expense of what it is worth NICE. U pull it junk yard, A rubber mallet, Guys who know how to match paint, and $50 inspection. I am really sorry I parted with the last one I fixed as it was cherry for it's age. But the new owner was thrilled to get such a beautiful car for that price. YOU MUST INFORM THE BUYER THAT THE TITLE IS RESTORED!

      Nice car drift dad. So when I'm bidding, I have an excel spreadsheet open and as I enter a bid it automatically calculates all the fees and what percentage they are of the total cost, plus it gives me a total including fees plus titling costs, plus taxes. My rule is I never buy anything but pure sales and never buy when fees exceed 30% of the total cost. Its kept me honest when the bidding frenzy starts and I look at that bottom line number and % of fees in big bold red numbers. Really nice car and best of luck on your next purchase.

      U can win great deals at copart but be aware they make mistakes. For example they sold me a 2010 ford explorer for 1500 dollars they tried to get more money oit of me i refused. So they had till 6pm to except and what do u know they took my offer. Now was happy pick up the car did paper work the hole thing. Next came up regestration come and find out couldnt register the car same day copart manager calls me and tells me i have to return the car becuz they made a mistake on paper work .i told them ill keep the car in till they fix the paperwork. They refuse and got very upset so i took the time to rethink this and try to come to an agrrement with the general manager he wouldnt even want to talk to me so i walk out next day he called me saying he would give me the same price for what i pay for the car but i had to bring it in . so i went in again to try to speak with him he refuse and sent some one to tell me to take the offer or the deal was off. So i return the car its been a week and i havent recieve a call from them they wont take my calls they did give me money back but at the end of day i lost the car an potential profit and the car is back on auction so much for his word.

      After around a $700 bid (depending if it's a parts card or one you will register), buying through a broker will save you the most money. I bought a couple quads and learned this the hard way. I created a spreadsheet to help me visualize the total costs https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yx99AKCEVA7PSr6VbRzzZFK8bvl9iPwg8rCOLPMYQnA/edit?usp=sharing Feel free to make a copy and adjust to your situation.

      If someone charges me a 25% fee on a junk ass car they can keep it. A salvage vehicle already loses 30% value right off the top. So your 55% into the cars value before you even touch it. What a waste.

      Valid point however there is still money to be made if the market is right. Check out my other videos to see how i made out.

      Very curious about this, but a huge bummer as my state requires a license to bid and purchase these. Colorado... anyone know roughly how much a car bonds guy charges to help you purchase a vehicle?

      I know a guy that tried to do this as a flip for copart. He got his butt sued off for selling a salvage title car to someone and did not inform them that was a totaled car. Read up on the laws in your state on these deals or you could lose everything like he did. These cars lose 20-50% off there value with rebuilt or salvage title. Dont get taken for a ride you might not ever recover from
