Copart strangeness tons of brand new "Rollovers" with 5 or 10 miles

Just curious how a brand new car with few miles would go into a rollover (and the airbags didn't deploy)

I'm thinking the semi rolled over but now I wonder if I could register the car as-is with a salvage title since I don't care about a dented set of fenders since everything else is intact.

Ah well.

Registered there, bleh, almost nothing available without paying a broker 2x the value of the car.

Storm damage? Sitting on the lot at a new car dealership?

Rollovers generally sell cheap since they have basically no sheetmetal that can be sold. Air bags are not designed to deploy in a rollover unless as certain threshold of impact g forces is met.

I do recall some ford plant had a lot of hail damage to some brand new vehicles waiting to be shipped to dealerships.

Thats all well and good but what is the best (read cheapest) way to bid on something at copart if none of your friends are car dealers?

As is copart charges plenty of fees, the brokers I have looked at add on plenty more, I wonder if any local wisconsin dealers have a copart account I could have them proxy for me under?

Salvage Dealer & Registered Broker with Copart Auto Auctions

Good lord that is retarded, if you win the bid at less than your bidding limit you have to split the difference between what the final bid was and what your limit was.

So if you have a $10,000 limit and the car sells for $500 you have
to pay $4875 + addition copart fees

I think if they did that I would go pay with a rifle
