Recent Catastrophe Response Initiatives

The Copart Catastrophe and Special Operations team recently responded to two CAT events. On June 28, a team was sent to Yard 61 in Detroit, MI after severe thunderstorms caused flooding in the area. Yard 61 received 1600 flood cars and due to the hard work of both teams and the Yard 61 staff, Copart was able to provide our sellers the customer service that is expected during a Catastrophe Event.

Prior to the landfall of Hurricane Elsa on July 7, a team was sent to Tampa, FL. Hurricane Elsa was a non-event for Copart, but the team was in place and ready to ensure that Copart was prepared and ready to receive vehicles if needed. Whether it’s a small or large event, the Copart Catastrophe and Special Ops Teams are always ready to deploy and assist to ensure that Copart continues to exceed our sellers’ expectations.
