Hello Fast Parts® Users!

Some of my recycler friends have called me recently to ask if everyone's used parts sales are down for this year. I do not have a definitive answer for that question but it seems to me the recyclers that have not adapted to the newest sales tools that Car-Part have created are not progressing as fast as the recyclers who have.

When your sales are down it is hard to consider spending more money, but sometimes that is the only way to break out of your slump. We're working hard to release Car Part Salvage, which will offer you a way to bid on vehicles without incurring high buyer fees. One of the complaints I hear most from recyclers today is the difficulty of purchasing vehicles at a price they can afford and still make a profit on selling the used parts in the market place. Car-Part is trying to help with the buying process by setting up this bidding for the recyclers. If this sounds like a good idea, please give me a call for more information and to sign up so you can participate when we release Car-Part Salvage!

Another important tool that Car Part has is the Bidmate vehicle buying tool that works with the Checkmate system. When you convert to Checkmate, you will be able to use the Bidmate buying tool to determine what each vehicle is worth to your individual auto recycling business. From your sales history, Bidmate calculates the value of parts on the vehicle and gives you a valuation you can rely on when you are bidding on a vehicle. With Advanced Bidmate, you can view Car-Part search history information to determine parts' popularity, giving you an advantage over other recyclers in the bidding process. You will have a good estimate on how quickly the parts will sell even if you have never had a similar vehicle in stock. As an incentive for you to convert from Fast Parts to the Checkmate system, we are offering this powerful tool for no charge for six months. This offer is for a limited time only! This is just another reason for you to call me so we can have a discussion about all the options available when you upgrade Fast Parts to Checkmate.

One of my long-time Fast Parts users asked me why I was switching all our users to Checkmate. The answer to his question is simple. A couple of years ago, we at Fast Parts realized that our inventory management system was going to need to be completely redeveloped to be viable in the future. The decision was made to make Checkmate the upgrade option, since we are constantly improving Checkmate to keep it current for the modern recycler. I am happy to say you will not have to wait for us to redevelop Fast Parts, because the Checkmate system is ready today! Car-Part is paying for the conversion and all you have to do is give me a call for details. That's correct – no cost to you for the conversion! Don't wait for your Fast Parts system to break, call me today so you can get this free upgrade!

I will be making calls to all of my Fast Parts users in November and December so try to make some time to talk to me about all the new money-making products Fast Parts, Checkmate, and have available for you. Thanks for all your questions and comments, and I will look forward to talking to you soon.

Thank You!
