Copart Assists With Heavy Lift Helicopter Vehicle Recovery

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:
