DALLAS, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), a global online vehicle auction company, is proud to announce the expansion of its location in Eight Mile, Alabama, near Mobile. This marks the sixth expansion and ninth new Copart location announced this year.
"Copart is not only growing in our number of locations worldwide, but we're also maximizing our existing locations by taking advantage of expansion opportunities," said Jay Adair, CEO of Copart. "Land expansions are just as fundamental to our business as new locations, and I'm excited to celebrate yet another."
The expansion of Copart's location in Eight Mile increases capacity for storing salvage and clean title vehicles that are sold through weekly, live online auctions. Online car auctions for the Eight Mile location are every Monday at noon CT, and they are accessible through computers, tablets and other mobile devices. Bidding kiosks are also available at each Copart location.
In addition to conducting online auctions, Copart is a proud community partner. Last year, Copart's Tanner, Alabama location provided a safe training environment for new recruits of the Decatur, Alabama fire department. Local fire departments, law enforcement and similar government agencies are encouraged to contact the general manager of any Copart location to learn about conducting training of their own at Copart.
