Global leader in online vehicle remarketing and recycling, Copart UK, have announced their plans to operate from a new 30-acre site in Gloucester, significantly boosting their vehicle storage capacity in the Southwest of England.

This former Cazoo site in Gloucestershire will provide Copart with storage for an additional 30,000 vehicles per annum.  

This, coupled with Copart’s existing Operation Centres in Westbury and Bristol, adds to Copart’s strategic network of storage and vehicle management capabilities in the Southwest.

This news follows a series of recent land investment announcements from Copart, including new sites in St Helens, Corby, and East Kilbride, and expansions at their Operation Centres in Bristol, Rochford, Sandtoft, Sandy, Peterlee, Hixon and Wisbech – taking Copart’s locations to 27.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said:

“With a growing, and increasingly diverse UK car parc, alongside the rise in extreme weather events, we know that remaining ahead of demand and having the ability to provide further storage capacity for our customers is vital. 

“We’re committed to continuously expanding our landbank and operational network across the UK, providing close proximity to communities and customers so that we can always be there when we are needed to collect, handle, and store vehicles quickly, efficiently, and with minimal environmental impact.”
