Copart Inc Corporate Greed At Its Finest. MARTINEZ, California

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I'am a licensed California dealer and for years I have been purchasing our invetory various auctions around the nation. One of the auction is the one I'am reporting about here, Copart Inc. I have been purchasing autos from this organization for close to 10 years now.

Today I experienced my breaking point. I have many matters in which I'am disgusted about. I will try to be brief and straight to the point.

Copart Inc is an online auction that specialize in the sale of auto. They are unique entity where registered members can purchase autos online. Many of these vehicle are involved in accidents that are recovered by major insurance companies such as Farmers, State Farm, USAA, and many smallers insurance companies.  Once a car owner is involved in an accident the vehicle at that point is recovered by the insurance company and sold by the insurance through Copart. Copart is the medium which members aquire these vehicles

There are many other sellers such as registered dealers like myself, auto dismantlers, charity organizations, car rental companies, etc. For obvious reasons these cars are sold AS IS WHERE IS. The buyer assumes full responsibility of these purchased items. 

Today I bidded on a vehicle I wished to purchase for my invetory. This vehicle was not a Salvage title item and before I purchased it I inspected it to make sure I would be ok with it. The issue I had with them today was we had some previous invoices that were not paid, and we take full responsibility for. I went to the auction to pay for the vehicle, but they would not release the vehicle they let me bid on. I asked one of the clerks, If I have pervious invoices howcome you let me bid on this item? Eiether you suspend my account until its paid and cleared or let me recover the vehicle I won. The clerk didn't didn't have a response.

I also work at a large celluar company, and when a customer does not pay their bill, their services are shut off. Many companies work this including the gas company, television servcies, banks, etc. 

Another time, we sold our vehicle at Copart, and they tried to force us to take the car back because we didn't disclose some items. It seems that the AS-IS policy only applies to Copart. Copart also takes deceiving pictures of their vehicles, so when you go to look at the vehicle you see what the actual damages are.

I have many more claims in regards to this company. I do business with many other auctions, but none of these are crooked as this. Hopefully I can shed some light on this company and help the public become aware of their actions. I'm all for profit and doing business right, but people should not be taken advantage of.

I'm the type of business man that speaks up when I feel corporations are greedy and do not conduct fair business practices. However , I respect your bias opinion. Thanks for reading.

It is great that you openly admit that:

  • Are upset others have miss-led you on vehicles sold through Copart and Copart allowed it

    That Copart caught you missleading purchasers on vehicles you sold at their auction and tried to hold you responsible

    That you are angry at Copart for getting you into a corner and trying to force you to pay your outstanding charges by not allowing you to complete a transaction

    That you knowingly went there to use their services knowing you were in arrears on your account.

You are exactly the type of business man that should be banned from all commercial transactions.
