  • VB2 (Virtual Bidding-2nd generation)
    • What is VB2?
      • VB2 is Copart’s online auto auction system
      • As of this year, all of Copart’s auctions have been converted from live on-site to online
    • Why is VB2 so important?
      • Increases returns to sellers by expanding the pool of bidders to any person in the world with access to the Internet
      • Increases buyer convenience by eliminating the need to travel to the physical location of the auction
company updates
Company Updates
  • Copart is expanding rapidly
    • They have added 24 auction yards since 2002.
  • Provide the most extensive vehicle services in the industry
  • VB2 online technology is now fully implemented, and it has greatly improved their business
  • Concerns
    • This was a very low-tech company that has suddenly gone high tech very quickly.
      • Buyer and Website Issues
  • Recommendation: Hold 1,000 shares
  • I believe Copart will continue to lead their industry. They have a great niche, and I believe they will continue to take advantage of it. Also, they provide the best services in the industry, and their online auction system will yield great benefits for them moving forward.
