Hello Fast Parts® Users!

The software development group at Car-Part is in high gear! Many new additions are in progress that should be helpful in putting your parts in front of more buyers. The Car-Part Pro™ professional part search is the most quickly-changing product we have now, with the newest technology in selling parts to the professional mechanics and body shops who make up most of the volume buying in our industry. Car-Part Pro is designed to make buying your used parts as easy as purchasing new or aftermarket parts for these high-volume auto parts customers. These busy businesses need a fast way to find available used parts to quote the job and purchase the parts without wasting time calling around, searching for the parts. With Car-Part Pro, your customer can find parts 24/7. If you're not on Car-Part Pro, you are not showing your parts to the highest volume used parts buyers out there. Give me a call so I can explain in more detail about selling more parts with Car-Part Pro. And remember, it's free for Car-Part Gold customers!

For all the Car-Part Pro users, we are giving you a free trial of the brokering service so you can see which brokers you can use that make you the most money. Many of you chose a major vendor like Brock Supply or The Connection to team up with. Because Car-Part is giving you this free trial, maybe you need to try some more vendors. How about making a decision to broker a wheel specialty vendor or a new radiator vendor? This could be your chance to open a whole new line of parts for your sales area. If you're confused about how brokering works or need a list of broker vendors to choose from, give me a call so I can show you how selling brokered parts can open a whole new revenue stream for your business.

Many of our Fast Parts® users have upgraded to the Checkmate® system in the last six months. I am receiving great reviews from the former Fast Parts users about how they are enjoying the new functions available in Checkmate. Some like simple things like the ease of changing part prices without exiting out to the inventory screens. Some are uploading their parts to eBay to sell their parts in a great new place. One of the former Fast Parts users is enjoying the integration to his QuickBooks program. There are many reasons to upgrade to Checkmate, and Car-Part is paying your license fee so the conversion is almost free. I have been calling you about converting and now you need to make the switch before the special conversion promotion program ends. Call me so we can make plans to upgrade your business soon.

The hot summer sun is just around the corner and the tags you have on those loose parts will fade and be un-readable soon if you have not switched to the new thermal tag printer that is offered to the Fast Parts users. We have offered this thermal printer for use in printing tags that stand up well to the harsh effects of Mother Nature. The thermal printer also works with the Checkmate system so when you upgrade there will be no problems with your tagging process. Let me know if you have questions about this or any other Car-Part or Fast Parts products.

Don't forget to call me about your reservations to the Car-Part Industry Conference in August!

Thank You!
