Copart how does copart rip of people Dallas Texas
I am going to today explain what you should consider when you bid on vehicles on copart and I will explain why you shouldn't buy anything from copart..........
I was a basic buyer and didn't have any premier membership, even I wasn't attempting to bid on big valued vehicles,( basic member can bid up to $ 1,000)
On that day I have been told that I won the auction and that I was really excited.....because I thought I would get something with the budget I have.....
I logged in and looked at the invoice that copart sent me for a vehicle that auction ended for a $ 1,000, The invoice value was $ 1,450 and they included all the charges that are not related with the vehicle, some stupid charges; for example, 90 dollars internet bidding fee 40 dollars gate fee... storage fee.... tax ( even I wasn't residence of Atlanta GO they said I should pay tax ) and membership fee was $ 200 (even I didn't want to be premier member they impose you to buy this !!!!) I was totally shocked....I wasn`t expecting any of those charges because I was purchasing a junk and I thought all cost related with the junk was included...
I made some more research and I found out more, there will be more charges such as re-entering fee to a facility when you attempt to take your JUNK !!!! AND STORAGE FEE :) which will be 50 bucks per day...... and reentering fees are $ 40 :)
so when you add up all those which I can call them as hidden fees, the deal will be probably the same that you can find from a local market, plus you buy something you dont see.....the pictures don't really reflect the real situation, some missing parts can be really expensive !!!!!.
They have very strict rules too, when you can not complete those responsibilities they will want you to pay $ 400 relisting fee or 10 % of the vehicles value... they may sue you as well...
Eventually I will tell everyone to not try.....
