Did You Know About Copart in Sun Valley?
Sun Valley Jose Mier tries to unearth those hidden things in our city that even longtime residents may not know about. One of those things is car auctions and specifically the Copart organization which has a location here in Sun Valley.
Most people, when in the market for a vehicle, go the traditional route, buying from a dealership—either new or used—buy from an individual or these days it’s even possible to buy a car online. However, some people look for unique opportunities such as purchasing a vehicle that’s been damaged in an accident at a car auction.
Copart is a company with locations throughout the United States and sells vehicles at auction. We just happen to have a Copart location here in Sun Valley, however there are locations in just about every state. Car auctions are a fascinating subject and the reasons people take advantage of these auctions are many. Some may want to find a deal and purchase a vehicle that’s been damaged at a low cost and spend the money to repair it. Others may be restoring the vehicle and need parts that they can salvage from a heavily damaged vehicle. As we’ve said it’s an interesting subject but those who want to take advantage of automobile auctions should be knowledgeable and know what they’re getting into. Some of the damage to these vehicles is extensive and if you’re planning to repair the vehicle and drive it you have to be very sure that it will be worth the effort.
