I’m very proud of what we do, so I’m delighted to have successfully demonstrated our commitment to providing industry-leading customer service to the CCA.” 

The journey doesn’t end here, as part of the assessment included feedback from the CCA on areas of improvement, which Copart will continue to explore and implement over the coming months. There have already been changes to both internal and external processes and the introduction of cross- departmental Open Days to improve communications and identify improvement opportunities.

“Not only has this experience gained Copart this fantastic accolade, it has also given us the opportunity to review our processes and identify areas for improvement. The CCA has supported us in providing the right training and personal development to help Copart’s customer contact teams continue to go from strength to strength.”
