Copart nears completion of Gloucester expansion

Copart is on track to open the doors of its new 30-acre Gloucester site in time for its first scheduled auction next month.

The site continues a period of significant investment and expansion from Copart which has also seen new facilities developed in Corby, East Kilbride, and St Helens.

Gloucester’s expansion will boost capacity for customers in the South West of England by providing storage for an additional 30,000 vehicles per annum, Copart said: “Not only is the UK car parc is growing and becoming more diverse, but we’re also seeing a huge rise in extreme weather events, so we know how important it is to remain ahead of demand and have the ability to keep increasing storage capacity for our customers.

Here at Copart, we’re proud of our ability to collect, handle, and store vehicles quickly, efficiently, and with minimal environmental impact. And we want to keep moving forward, always. That’s why we’re continuing to invest into expanding our landbank and operational network across the UK. Alongside our other new sites we are in closer proximity to more communities and customers than ever before.”
