Courtice, Ontario — December 9, 2015 — Copart Canada has announced the grand opening of the Moncton, New Brunswick location and the full integration of Copart’s Virtual Bidding – The Third Generation (VB3) technology at the Montreal, Québec location. Both locations have successfully hosted online auctions using VB3 technology, and have reportedly received a high level of engagement from Copart’s international buyer base.
“We are excited about our growth in Canada and our ability to provide a first-class, online auction experience in both English and French Canadian,” said Steve Macaluso, Managing Director of Copart Canada. “Launching these locations as a part of Copart Canada has been a team effort across the company. We are also grateful for the support from these communities as well as our insurance partners.”
Copart Canada acquired Encan Berpa in November 2013, and after upgrading and developing new technology, VB3 was fully integrated and translated to French Canadian. Prior to this upgrade, the auction was a traditional live auction with a broadcast web tool. Now, with VB3, this location joins the rest of the Copart auctions using the leading patented auction technology.
Copart Montreal hosted its inaugural, fully online auction on November 3, experiencing record auction attendance compared to attendance numbers prior to the integration. Online auctions for Montreal are now hosted weekly, on Tuesdays at 10 am EST.
Copart Moncton hosted its first auction on October 13 and will be hosting an auction every second Tuesday going forward. Moncton expands Copart’s coverage of Eastern Canada, representing Copart’s commitment to the Canadian marketplace.
