Hello Fast Parts® Users!

Evolution is essential for your business. That's why has added many new products to your plate in 2012. It is very important that you watch what is happening in our rapidly changing industry. Vehicles are becoming more and more difficult to purchase and the prices are going through the roof. How can you combat the big corporations with large amounts of money to pay for vehicles? This is nothing new. You have been working smarter than the big boys for years and with some of the tools that Car-Part has invented lately you can continue to outfox those newcomers. How do you do it?

The Fast Parts inventory management system has served you well for many years and as a simple-to-use management system, you could not have done better. With the changing auto recycling marketplace you need to take a look at the more advanced Checkmate inventory management system and see for yourself what advantages it has over your current system. I think the most important asset is the information you have at your fingertips with Checkmate. When making a sale you will have more information about the history of your parts, allowing you to get the maximum amount of profit from each part you sell. Every part, every day, more profit! That is how you outsmart the competition. Working with other Car-Part brokering partners, you can network your parts with their parts and become much larger as a group of recyclers. Car-Part has made it easy and safe to broker parts with your fellow recyclers by making your inventory of saleable parts many times greater. can put your parts and parts you broker in front of thousands of body shops and mechanics shops with Car Part Pro. The list of professional automotive shops that are using Car-Part Pro is growing at a rapid rate, and your parts need to be there. Call me if you need more information about signing up for Car-Part Pro.

At one time, you could bid for cars by eyeing a few saleable parts off the vehicle and remembering what the sales tendencies were. Not any more! There are too many models and the sales tendencies change too quickly. One of the Checkmate add-on features is Bidmate. Bidmate is a buying tool, with an exceptional low price, that can keep up with the day-to-day value of vehicles and their parts. It automatically calculates vehicle value based on your sales history and stocking levels. Car-Part made this powerful buying tool at a price we all can afford. Even recyclers that just buy vehicles off the street can profit from the information Bidmate gives them. Bidmate not only gives you your selling history, but with the optional Car-Part Request Data feature, you can access the request data from millions of searches customers make on the website. Bidmate is easy and quick to use and can download entire auctions so you can outbid your competition on the vehicles you need to turn a profit. If you are considering the Checkmate system, this buying tool is a must, and if you use Partmate for your inventory tool you will be happy to know that Bidmate works with Partmate to help inventory your vehicles.

We are coming up to the holiday season and if you find a few minutes to spare, give me a call and get your questions answered about all the new Car-Part products. Don't forget that Fast Parts customers can upgrade to Checkmate for free, for a limited time.

Thank You!
