Copart doubles Sandtoft site capacity

Copart UK, is expanding its Sandtoft site to create a 110-acre UK Super Centre in the North of England.

The company has acquired an additional 65 acres of land situated on a neighbouring site to its Sandtoft Operation Centre in North Lincolnshire.

Once works are completed it will become an extension of the existing 45-acre Copart Sandtoft site, with the additional acreage more than doubling its overall vehicle storage capacity for customers operating in the North of England.

This will make it Copart’s largest vehicle storage and processing centre in the UK, adding to the existing network of ‘Super Centres’ in Bristol, Bury St Edmunds, and Sandwich in Kent.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said: “Demand from our customers continues to rise and we’re committed to future-proofing their needs, considering the evolving car parc and the increase in extreme weather events like floods.

“This expansion will increase our annual vehicle storage capacity to over 120,000 at our Sandtoft site, supporting Copart’s continued growth and industry leading services in the North alongside our Operation Centres in Peterlee, Whitburn, and York.”
