Hello Fast Parts® Users!

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Our main goal auto recyclers is to sell more used parts. Years ago, we used voice lines to communicate with our fellow recyclers and increase the parts we had available to sell. Today, the same idea is being used with instant messaging (iCPM). Not so long ago, we would put an ad in the phone book to draw more business. Today, you ask your customer how he found you and he might say he Googled you. Today, you not only need to broker other people?s parts but you need to advertise online that these parts are available from you.

Selling aftermarket parts at your auto recycling business is not a new concept, but Car-Part Gold with Car-Part Pro has brought this process to a whole new level. Showing parts you have access to in addition to the parts you have in stock is important if you want to gain more sales. Brokering aftermarket parts with is easy and is a proven way to increase your inventory and sell more parts. Car-Part is having a promotion to show you how easy it is to broker parts. Give me a call to learn more about how you can increase sales with this easy-to-use tool. is getting closer to having pictures of parts online, and this is one of the reasons I am suggesting that you look into upgrading from Fast Parts to Checkmate. As you know, there are many benefits to converting to Checkmate ? and with Car-Part paying for the licenses and data conversion process, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose! Over 100 Fast Parts customers have already upgraded, and dozens are in the process right now. If you are a user or you are thinking about using in the future, you need to call me so we can go over the free Fast Parts to Checkmate promotion.

I thought it would be a good time to remind you about our newest (and fast becoming the most popular) improvement to the Fast Parts system: the low-cost thermal printer. After months of work, our team of computer engineers were able to make our system work with a very reliable and inexpensive thermal printer. Up until now a thermal printer would cost as much as $2,000 and even though we knew the ink on the OKI printers would fade off after a while, it was hard to justify that kind of expense. Now, Fast Parts users can have the part number and information burned into the tag so you can read it for years. We can sell the thermal printer for only $400 and a small one-time setup fee of $250. The special tag paper is $130 for three rolls. So now all the Fast Parts users can have the best parts tag in the industry. And yes, it works with Checkmate too!

Things are changing at a fast pace but the goal is still the same: sell more used parts! I believe has developed tools that help with our goal and when you have questions about these new features please feel free to call or email me with questions or comments.

Thank You!
