Copart announces new Staffordshire site

Copart UK has opened a 10-acre site in Staffordshire, boosting its vehicle storage capacity in the West Midlands by 15%.

This site will provide the company with storage for an additional 7,000 vehicles per annum in Hixon, Staffordshire.

This news follows a series of recent land investment announcements from Copart, including new sites in Corby (Northamptonshire) and East Kilbride (Scotland) as well as continued expansion at their Operation Centres in Rochford, Sandtoft, Westbury, and Wisbech.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to boost vehicle storage capacity in the West Midlands as part of our ongoing reinvestment strategy into land, transport, services, and technology.

“With an increasingly diverse UK car parc and extreme weather events becoming more commonplace, especially as we head into the winter months, expanding our provision of storage capacity is vital.

“We’re committed to further developing and expanding Copart’s strategically positioned operational network across the UK, providing close proximity to communities and customers so that we can collect, handle, and store vehicles quickly, efficiently, and with minimal environmental impact.”
