Global leader in online vehicle remarketing and recycling, Copart UK, have announced that expansion works have completed at their 80-acre Super Centre in Bristol, making it winter-ready for their customers.
The recent addition of a further 21 acres establishes this location as an 80-acre ‘Super Centre’ for the Southwest.
The expansion adds 30% more vehicle capacity for Copart’s customers operating in this area, providing secure storage, and enlarged areas for vehicles that require specialist handling like EVs, HEVs, and flood and fire damaged vehicles.
In addition, further improvements to the infrastructure include an eco-friendly office building with strong green credentials, bio-diversity spaces designed to improve air quality and encourage nature, and brand-new vehicle preparation and valeting areas using state-of-the-art technology to inspect and image vehicles.
Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said:
“Our Bristol Super Centre is a flagship ‘fit for the future’ site for Copart, having undergone an extensive expansion and improvement programme to enable us to keep growing our customer offering and operational capabilities to further service our customer needs.
“This expansion at Bristol will enable us to handle over 82,000 vehicles per annum, supporting Copart’s continued growth and industry leading services in the Southwest alongside our Operation Centres in Newbury and Westbury.
“And with winter fast approaching, this additional capacity will enable us to offer unique contingency land following extreme weather events where our insurance customers require our fast and efficient surge management services.”
