      buying cars from Copart to resale is not really worth it. I know it, I've had bid on a few cars and they go for prices as if they had clean titles. Plus, they have outrageous fees...they will charge you for anything they could possibly think of, a fee for just looking at the car, for touching it, and maybe a fee if you fart inside the car.

      not all of the cars for sale at Copart are wrecks, so let's say that you find an old decent car and you win the bid for $300 bucks, well, the fees might actually be more than what you bid for the car. Then add the costs of needed repairs and registration, that lousy car that you bid $300, will end up costing you around $1,500. Give or take a couple hundred.

      Then a few days later you see a car like the one you just purchased, in the same or in better shape, for sale with an asking price of $900, meaning the owner might let it go for $700.

      So that car that you won for $300 plus fees = $600 give or take $100, plus at least $300 in repairs. And it could very possibly cost you even more, so was it really worth it?

      No strange noises when the engine is running, he says. Dont buy salvage cars unless you are planning on driving them yourself. They are a pain in the ass to sell. Not to mention, low mileage salvage cars are not covered by the factory warranty, which means all recalls are at the owner's expense.

      Do you have to have a license or whatever? To go to the lot and actually look at the car before or as you bid?

      I'm just trying to figure out because I want to bid on some cars at the cool parts near me and want to inspect them so I'm not buying a "lemon"

      you cant realign a unibody, it's not an actual frame. you'd have to cut of the entire front end.
      and even then it'll never be allowed on the road again with a certificate of destruction.

      Terrible Job or checking out a Vehicle. First thing that should be done is to check the fluids prior to starting. These are the guys who wreck thousands of dollars worth of stuff by not knowing what they are doing. Copart should NOT allow anyone to be out starting cars. That is why so much stuff is destroyed from Non experienced people.

      I used to work at COPART and our manager was once bragging and laughing about how all these buyers were stupid and would go to bidding wars over a $500 car.

      Drive&Dismantle that's true. Not to mention most of these cars will have a rebuilt title and not worth as much even insurance in some instances is higher for these cars. One time three guys went on a bidding wars over a Harley Davidson Sportster which was laid down and had extensive side damage. It ran and ultimately went to the highest bidder at $4600 what a dumbass he could of spent $2000 more on a new one!

      Interesting, I never bid on 500 dollar cars, but no professionals are going to bid more than will make them money one way or another. I have friends that are amazed how much I will pay for some of the car I do, but if your making the money you need to or getting what you want at the end of the day it all makes sense.

      Copart you will win the auction then they will email you a higher price to buy the car EXTREMELY POOR BUSINESS!!! PLUS the $500 u have to pay autobidmaster or some dealer with a license!!!

      If you don't want to deal with post bid negotiation, only bid on pure sale vehicles. It isn't Copart, it's the insurance agent in charge of making sure that the car sells for near a fair market value for the condition.

      Usually, copart only allows members access on Wednesday mornings. Although if you make a bead for one particular car on a non-Wednesday they'll usually let you see it - but not until they get an escort to walk you to it.

      Most the cars are not for sale to the general public. Only ones that are Pure Sale auctions. Most cars are available only to dealers. And if you have a dealer buy a car for you - in California - the DMV requires that the dealer be licensed to sell cars in California. AutobidMaster - for example - isn't licensed to sell cars in California. So watch out that you don't have to register the car in another state and then transfer the title to California.

      There is a page on Copart's site that lets you know which vehicles and locations let you bid without a license. Again this isn't copart but local laws

      if I bid on a car for 200$ and nobody bids on it and the auction day ends does that mean I get it for 200?

      Drive&Dismantle In reply to Bassin Assassin

      only if it is a "pure sale"
      You won't get the car without a minimum of 350 in fees.

      *What about the dealer issue where you have to be a dealer or pay high dollar to someone to bid on and buy the car for you*?

      DaddytechEnt you are right. depending on the state, you may have to clock on coparts broker list and sign up. usually they charge 250 per winning bid.
