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.

      Don't believe these salvage auctions they will deliberately misrepresent the vehicles they have for sale and once you have won the car and they have perhaps also damaged it after the sale if you don't go and collect it yourself to determine that everything is in order they will screw you over by stating once the car leaves their yard they are no longer responsible for it or if you demand a refund when you do go and collect it yourself because the car was damaged or misrepresented they will make you wait months before they reimburse you!

      They havent lost anything. Do the math. How many claims do they have per year that are totals? Not that many. Between Copart being crooks and Insurance companys being crooks, people like you are what is wrong. They are crooks all the way around. The guys that make the deals are dealers , not guys like you.

      +Drift Dad Not wrong, just uninformed. Big difference. You are only wrong if you do it twice. We all make mistakes, thats life. After seeing guys constantly getting soaked because of CoPart, I say lesson learned. I just watched a guy get burned buying a boat from the same place you went. For a couple grand more, he could have bought a used boat just like the one he bought but no flood damage. I worked with a guy that used to buy wrecked cars and repair them and resell them. After a while he decided the effort was far outweighing the time and money invested. Years ago, I got into buying Mustang 2's with bad top ends. They were the 4 cylinder gutless wonders but I could fix them cheap ass hell and resell them all day long. The parts were dirt cheap and I could do it in a day. Back then, engines were simple stupid to fix. I do not want anything to do with todays cars. I can still fix them, but buy certain models only. What I am comfortable with.

      don't buy cars like that, I bet you anything some young kid had that and was drifting it and nailed a curb or something. look up what cars kids buy and abuse and stay away from those and also pop the hood and see if someone did a bunch of mods which you also want to stay away from since that could of screwed it up. always check the oil, coolant, and body lines for possible frame damage. if you see milky or super dark oil or crap in the coolant then walk away from it. if you want to buy and sell cars from there then look for 4x4 trucks, suv's with 3rd row, and hybrid cars. those will net you a good profit if you buy them right there and a lot of times you can google the vin and it will pop up some history of the car. good luck

      LIVE IT UP yes. Copart has a list on their site so you can see how much your fees will be based on the final bid price.

      Not your video. But a majority of these high profile YouTube videos showing Copart buying and selling is funded by copart or the auto insurance firms.

      That car isnt worth crap as a good used car so paying 3500 for a rebuilt car is crazy.

      Copart is a scam. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. do not sign up to be premier member, you will waste your money. Astronomical fees! they can change a “pure sale” to reserve at the last minute if they wish. It’s all backroom fakery. Beware of these bullshit companies like Copart that side with insurance companies and dealers. They are here to make money on your ignorance. Drift daddy got extremely lucky

      What does the $50 gaye fee cover?
      The gate?

      It covers the cost of giant fork lift bringing the car to the gate and loading it on your trailer or tow truck. Not too bad but the $79 internet fee is what kills me.

      Let's go buy some over bid, over priced, insurance totalled, wreck crap from CoPart
      And pay them all their various fees to boot
      What could go wrong?

      A reserve or an approval?
      That's called an "if"
      You tell then to shove it at that point
      And run it again
      And pay the fees
      Adios!
