Glossary of Terms



ALL VEHICLES ARE SOLD AS "AS IS - WHERE IS" - ALL BIDS ARE BINDING AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL
ACV stands for the "Actual Cash Value" of the lot, which means the estimated retail value of the lot as submitted to Copart by the seller. If the lot has been damaged, this is the value prior to the occurrence of the damage. Retail automobile values may be obtained from Kelley Blue Book (kbb.com) and many other sources on the web. This number is presented for informational purposes only. Copart makes no representations as to the validity or accuracy of the listed value.
Body Style is the manufacturer's designation of the vehicle's configuration.
BID4U represents the highest bidder during both the preliminary bidding process and the virtual auction. Simply enter the maximum price you are willing to pay for the lot during preliminary bidding and BID4U will bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid during the virtual auction. BID4U will only bid one increment over the current bid to maintain your position as the highest bidder. This allows you to purchase a vehicle below your maximum bid if bidding doesn't meet or exceed your maximum bid.
Color listed on this site is the common color name that reasonably represents the exterior color of the vehicle. Color is NOT the manufacturer's designated color name, but rather simply a general descriptive name.
The Current Bid is the highest price offered for this lot at this time. There may be a higher maximum bid being represented by VB2 BID4U. The Current Bid is always listed in the currency of the country of the facility.
