Copart team members in Oregon recently assisted one our Sellers with a spectacular vehicle recovery mission. The effort required a heavy lift helicopter to retrieve a fallen truck from a 1,000-foot canyon in the Callahan Mountains. In partnership with T&M Towing and Croman Corporation, the team was able to safely recover the vehicle.
The experience was a great example of the lengths our vendors are willing to go for Copart and our Sellers! They came home with some amazing images. Take a look:
Copart, a global online auto auction company, was awarded with the “2019 Award of Distinction” by the Communicator Awards recognizing the excellence of the Copart Catastrophe (CAT) Team Brochure, a 24-page look at the amazing work being done by this team.
Within the brochure, you’ll find insights and data about the CAT Team’s processes and how the team promotes the best possible outcomes for their Sellers. The CAT Team is comprised of a trained group of Copart employees and volunteers who travel onsite to areas after natural disasters occur. Working closely with their Sellers, they recover, store and sell salvaged vehicles quickly and efficiently – allowing these communities to get back on their feet.

Let’s take a moment to celebrate our people! We are proud to cherish our employees from start to finish. Hear from Copart Las Vegas Assistant General Manager Michelle McClellan on how her yard celebrated a beloved employee’s departure:
“On Friday May 17, 2019, Yard Agent Broderick Fulton completed his last day with Copart! He is retiring with 7759 days under his belt. That equates to 21 years and 3 months! We celebrated in style with Broderick’s favorites, a BBQ lunch from Famous Dave’s & his favorite carrot cake from Freeds Bakery.
Since Broderick is a die hard Raiders fan, he received an autographed picture and jersey from his favorite player Ken Stabler in honor of his commitment to Copart for the past 21 years. We are really going to miss you! Hope you’ll enjoy every minute of your retirement!”
