So, since it is the hands of Coparts, what would be "transaction" expenses added on top of the sale cost?

Looks like it has lots of good parts on it so might not be a bad buy. I couldn't see the hail damage on the waxed hood. Fresh wax makes it look like someone loved it.

I notice they are going to sell it at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Would one be able to examine the car before the sale?

Would they require immediate removal or could one arrange a nominal "storage" fee?

The fees to copart are approximately $400.00.

I believe you can inspect prior to the sale, however you might need to be a registered buyer/bidder.

If when you purchase from copart I believe you have 2 days to pick up or pay something like $50.00 per day storage or more. Also, they have certain rules on payment, like they don't want cash, cashiers check or bank check.

HTH,
Scott

If you blow the pictures up you can begin to see the hail damage. Exterior looks totaled. Looks like a couple of big hail stones went right through the RF fender. Never mind

Look on top of the right fender. Two big holes.

Ati's post is getting some attention. Bid increased $675 over the last couple hours. I wonder who is at $825???

Surprised the hail that damaged the fender didn't take out the back window. And that $825 is really $1065 after the fees and that's if you have a license. Add a few hundred if you don't for a broker and shipping costs.

Exactly, that $825 is going to be $1200-1300 otd (out the door) for non-brokers like us. That's my $825 but close to my max since it's going to be 1000 + mi with a truck and trailer for me.
