    ABetter.Bid is an online broker that will handle the bidding on Copart or IAAI for you (for a fee of course). Some vehicles being auctioned online require a license to buy. This is where ABetter.Bid is useful since they can bid on any car.

    Search the laws before paying for the broker. Many states (Texas and Arkansas for sure) do not require any kind of license to bid on salvage titled vehicles.

    I'm planning on purchasing my donor through a local IAAI yard next week. I'll let you all know how it goes.

    I have a quick question for anyone that has bought a car from copart, I was wondering if my brother would buy the car in texas would I be able to ship it to nj straight from the lot

    There are shippers available. Copart themselves doesn't do the shipping but third party companies do and are usually available on site.

    While that's correct Copart doesn't actually ship the cars they will handle the shipping if bought though Copart.

    My guess is TX to NJ will be over $1000. Might be better to keep your search a little more local.
