Does the Copart Engine Start Program Mean the Vehicle Drives?

Engine start program - vehicle will do just that. It will start up and run at idle. Vehicle may not go into gear or roll onto a trailer so it's usually the case that they will need to be winched or forklifted on.

For example, a vehicle can run as part of the engine start program and literally not have wheels. It does start and may even go into Drive. But it will do no good if it cannot roll and steer.

Just like the "Run and Drive" listings, Copart does not guarantee a car will be that way by the time auction ends. With Copart, it's always as-is with no guarantees. In our experience however, vehicles listed run and drive or engine start will normally be as described.
