Copart to expand south west capacity

Online vehicle remarketing and recycling experts Copart UK has announced plans to open a new 30-acre site in Gloucester.

The new facility will provide storage for an additional 30,000 vehicles per annum.

Joining existing Operation Centres in Westbury and Bristol, it will enhance Copart’s strategic network of storage and vehicle management capabilities in the region.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said: “With a growing, and increasingly diverse UK car parc, alongside the rise in extreme weather events, we know that remaining ahead of demand and having the ability to provide further storage capacity for our customers is vital.

“We’re committed to continuously expanding our landbank and operational network across the UK, providing close proximity to communities and customers so that we can always be there when we are needed to collect, handle, and store vehicles quickly, efficiently, and with minimal environmental impact.”
