How to (Try To) Get Copart to Waive Fees by Yourself (Spoiler Alert: It’s Difficult)

Nothing Is Hidden: Copart Has Public Pricing

If you're not a trained paralegal or attorney, you're going to struggle to get Copart to waive their fees. Copart is pretty straightforward about its fee system, and this information is available to the public. You don't need to be a member or pay a membership fee to see all the costs associated with a purchase.

But many people don't realize the more expensive a car is, the higher the fee. And if you don't pay within three business days, there's a late fee. All that is on top of membership fees.

Still, you can try to get Copart to waive fees. Here's how:

  1. Call Copart member services at (972) 391-5400, or email them at
  2. Pleasantly and professionally explain your charges and why you believe these fees are unfair.
  3. Then play the waiting game.
  4. You might need to speak to a supervisor, and you may need to upgrade your contact to an emergency.
  5. Keep track of every conversation. This is a situation where time-stamped emails can be handy.

If you're still being charged unfair fees, you might need to head over to a small claims court to prove your case and get those fees waived.

Can You Take Copart to Small Claims Court?

Absolutely! As a consumer, you can take Copart to small claims court. If you're a dealer/broker etc., things can get more complicated. You'll need a corporate lawyer or legal department on your side if you don't use DoNotPay.

Make copies of all your affected bank statements, credit card statements, emails to and from Copart, and see the judge. Now, Copart might choose to settle the case without going to court. It's cheaper to pay you those fees back than to pay a lawyer. Still, DoNotPay is the faster, easier way.

Remember, any time you feel like a company or organization is taking advantage of you, make DoNotPay your first resource.
