Copart investing in new Scottish HQ

Online vehicle remarketing and recycling company Copart UK is bringing investment and job opportunities to the Fife area by opening new CashForCars headquarters in Kirkcaldy.

Launched in 2021, Copart UK’s sister company CashForCars is the UK’s leading online car buying service.

Its web-based technology enables it to buy cars directly from customers and re-sell them through Copart’s patented online auction platform.

Since launching in the UK and Ireland last year, it has seen rapid expansion in line with growing customer demand for online used car sales, and as a result, has invested into new executive offices.

The team includes specialist vehicle buyers and skilled customer sales advisors, as well as technologists. Further job opportunities are expected and the company is now actively recruiting customer sales representatives.

Mark Godfrey, director of strategy, marketing and Copart Automotive, said: “As we continue to increase our footprint in Scotland, we’re delighted to announce significant investment into the Fife area.

“Our new spacious offices, with easier road accessibility and modern, energy efficient facilities, perfectly complements our ongoing Copart Cares CSR commitment to caring about teammates, customers, local communities, and the environment.

“As continues to grow, supported by Copart’s extensive operational capabilities, we fully expect to bring further expansion and job opportunities to this area of Scotland.”
