Copart UK orders Volvo and DAF car transporters

Online vehicle remarketing company Copart UK is to take on 79 new DAF and Volvo-based multi-car transporters.

The seven- and eight-car transporters will replace older models with more efficient vehicles.

The transporters are being converted by specialist transporter builder Belle Trailers, with the first units going into production this winter.

Features include a new rear ramp to enhance safe loading, while camera technology will also be fitted.

Phil Briggs, director of operations centres, Transport and Engineering at Copart, said: “We are delighted to have made this significant addition to our transport fleet with the support and expertise of Belle Trailers.”

Copart UK was established in 2007 and sells more than 400,000 vehicles each year through online auctions for a variety of customers including finance companies, banks, dealers, fleets, rental car companies and the insurance industry.
