Thank You to the 2017 Special Operations Team

The Special Operations Team responded to numerous calls throughout 2017. The team along with countless volunteers helped with events such as the floods in southern Texas and Louisiana and Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. As we close out 2017, we want to celebrate the commitment of our 2017 Special Ops Team.

 A note from Simon Smock, Director of Inventory Management, to our dedicated team:

I cannot express enough how much gratitude I have for the 2017 Special Operations Team.  Not only was this one of the most active storm seasons we ever faced, but also the single largest catastrophe event in Copart history.  The commitment and dedication this team has are truly commendable.  Every day they exemplified their toughness, determination, and grit; and they continually proved they are always ready to heed the call. 

I appreciate all their hard work.  A large part of what makes Copart so amazing is our people.  We have incredible people and these employees are a bid above the rest and they have very bright futures at Copart.

We are shining the Copart spotlight on these dedicated individuals. Please take some time to thank the 2017 Special Ops Team for their service.

  1. I had the pleasure of volunteering with many of these guys in Texas and it was a privilege to work with a great group of hard working and fun people. Thank you all for making my first CAT experience a great one.
