accuracy of current member information on file and paying the appropriate registration fee.
CPAP will automatically collect the annual registration fee from your deposit on August 1st of
each year, unless other arrangements have been made by the member. Licenses must be
renewed and submitted to Cleveland Pick-A-Part prior to expiration to retain active buyer
status. You must be a Buyer in good standing in order to gain access to or bid on vehicles
offered via Copart’s Internet-based vehicle bidding program and procedures. You are
responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the username and password, and are fully
responsible for all activities that occur under your username, password, or on your account.
You agree to (a) immediately notify CPAP of any unauthorized use of your username and
password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your
account at the end of each session. CPAP cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage
arising from your failure to comply with this section.
Modifications to service – CPAP reserves the right at any time and from time to time to
modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or
without notice. You agree that CPAP shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any
modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
Termination – You agree that CPAP, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password,
account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service, and remove and discard any content within
the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use, or if CPAP believes
that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the “Terms and
Conditions”. You acknowledge and agree that CPAP may immediately deactivate or delete your
account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to
such files or the Service. Further, you agree that CPAP shall not be liable to you or any
third-party for any termination of your access to the Service.
Fee and payment structure – The structure is as follows;
There is a minimum $400.00 security deposit required to activate the buyers’ account and
keep the account open and active. Once activated, the buyer can purchase one vehicle costing
up to $4000.00. If the buyers’ desired maximum bid is to exceed this value, the bidder must
contact CPAP and pay an additional security deposit. The total security deposit will be equal to
10% of the maximum bid value- ex. a $10,000.00 max bid will require a $1,000.00 security
deposit. To bid on multiple vehicles at one time, a 10% maximum bid security deposit must be
paid for each vehicle with a minimum $400.00 per vehicle. In the event a buyer does NOT win
the vehicle auction, the security deposit will remain in a secure account with Cleveland
Pick-A-Part. The buyer can then bid on an alternative vehicle up for auction that day or at a
future date. If a vehicle is purchased, the vehicle cost and associated fees must be paid in full
and the vehicle must leave the auction yard prior to availability of the deposit to bid on
another vehicle. If the buyer chooses to close the account, or if we terminate the account per
section 4, the deposit will be available for refund by company check to the buyer. The
deposit will be released after a 2 weeks waiting period and only upon receipt of customer
e-mail request (from the account of record) for proof of identity noting buyer number and
account holder. The deposit will refunded in the form of a check issued to the name of the
primary account holder only and mailed to the address on file.
Once the buyer successfully wins a vehicle auction, Copart will forward CPAP their invoice
including all Copart fees. CPAP will assess a transaction/broker fee as well as any additional
fees and send to customer. The Reseller buyer fee is broken down based on sale price of
vehicle won, as seen on Reseller Fees Addendum.
Copart assesses fees on every vehicle purchased through their auctions. The buyer is
responsible for researching specific fees charged by Copart as they are automatically added to
the winning high bid. See the “Member Fees” tab under “Support” at the bottom of the page
on the Copart website www.copart.com.
Payment in full is due to CPAP by 4:00 EST two business days following the vehicle purchase
date. If the payment is not made within two business days following the auction date, Copart
will assess a $50 late fee. Payment for ‘Buy It Now’ purchases must be paid within 24 hours of
the vehicle being awarded, including weekends. If the vehicle is not payed for within 10
business days, that vehicle will be re-listed for sale by auction on the Copart web site and the
buyer’s security deposit will be forfeited. All vehicle payments must be made to Cleveland Pick
A Part. Copart will not accept payment for a vehicle from our customers, no exceptions.
If the vehicle purchased has not left the Copart yard of purchase within five business days of
the auction date including the auction date, Copart will begin assessing a storage fee of $20.00
per day including Saturdays and Sundays. The vehicle will not be released for transport until
all storage fees are paid in full. If the vehicle has not been removed from the Copart lot within
14 days of the auction date, the vehicle will be relisted for auction. CPAP will make payment
for outstanding Copart fees using the purchasers deposit as necessary.
In the event a buyer wins the auction and chooses not to purchase the vehicle for any
reason, the buyer deposit will be reduced by the amount of the relist fees owed to Copart plus
$50 to cover costs incurred by CPAP. Copart Relist Fees are 10% of the high bid price or $400,
whichever is greater. The buyer is also responsible for any and all collection costs, including
attorney fees and court costs. Any buyer that reneges on a second vehicle will have his bidding
All titles come in from the insurance company/owner and are assigned to CPAP Inc. as the
buyer. We are located in Ohio. Each state has its own laws regarding the titling of vehicles-
SOME STATES MAY NOT ALLOW TRANSFER OF A CERTAIN TITLE BRANDING. THE BUYER IS
RESPONSIBLE FOR UNDERSTANDING STATE BY STATE TITLING REQUIREMENTS. The buyer is
responsible for paying all fees and taxes associated with transferring title from state of origin
to CPAP Inc. in Ohio and then into the buyer name. No title will be released to anyone but
Cleveland Pick A Part. All titles will be mailed directly to CPAP. Copart is not required to
release a title until the vehicle has left the yard. They then have 2 weeks to release
non-pending titles. Once CPAP receives them we will contact you for the necessary
