Find vehicle


Use the "Vehicle Search" menu, the "Quick Search" box located on the header or the search fields on the home page to search and find the vehicle of your choice fast, we have the most convenient search filters. You can search cars for sale by Vehicle Type, Year, Make, Model, Title Type, Vehicle Location, etc. You can also use the "Quick Picks", search by Lot Number or simply search by your own criteria using the Advanced Search.

On the search results page, click on the vehicle description and it will navigate you to the vehicle information page. There, you can find information on the mileage, title type, primary damage, etc. You can see the vehicle's pictures on the search result pages or on the vehicle information page, we offer the biggest vehicle images of any car website. If you click on "Auction Location" it will provide you with the address and phone number to the yard where the vehicle is stored.

Do not guide yourself strictly on the images and the information provided on the website. The Vehicle Information provided by Copart or this website is for convenience only. Buyers shall not rely on Vehicle Information in deciding whether or how much to bid on a vehicle offered for sale through Copart or this website. It is the sole responsibility of the Buyer to ascertain, confirm, research, inspect, and/or investigate vehicles and any and all Vehicle Information prior to bidding.

PLEASE INSPECT THE VEHICLES BEFORE BIDDING. We strongly recommend that you visit the yard or hire an inspector to visit the yard and inspect the vehicle prior to making any offers. Please register on the Copart site to get a membership in order to be allowed to visit the yard and inspect the vehicles. Bring a mechanic along! ALL VEHICLES ARE SOLD AS "AS IS - WHERE IS". ALL OFFERS ARE BINDING AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL. This means that you are buying the vehicles "with all faults" and without any warranty or guarantee of any type, express or implied, so it's very important that you inspect the vehicles before bidding.

You can check your bid in the “Open Items” page located on the "Bid Status" tab in your account. You will see the status of the vehicle. If it says ‘seller countered’ you can keep your current offer, accept their offer, or raise your bid. You will be notified via email once you are awarded a vehicle.
