Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is that time of year that as a business owner you can take stock of how the year went. Tally up what went right and what is not working. I think, overall, this was a difficult year for auto recyclers. But as hard as it may be to consider, some of our auto recycling businesses increased sales and made a larger profit than ever before. In evaluating what made the difference between who did well and who lagged behind, it became clear what the difference was: the recyclers who expanded their market area did well and those that did not lost profits or stayed the same. It really comes down to this: if you want to continue in the auto recycling business, you must expand your market area.

How do you expand your market area? You must find ways to sell your parts to new customers. One of the simplest methods is to partner with other auto recyclers in locations that you normally don't sell into. Make it easy for your partners to sell your parts by letting them know when the parts will arrive and what damage (if any) the part has. This is where we can help you, with Car-Part Pro! This service calculates the delivery time, warranty and condition of your parts automatically, giving your brokering partners the needed information for their customer. Car-Part Pro makes it easy and profitable for your partners to sell your parts, giving you that larger selling area you need to increase your profit. Car-Part Pro is a part of the Car-Part Gold package, and is of great value with no extra cost to Car-Part Gold subscribers. Call me if you have questions about this money-making tool from

The Fast Parts to Checkmate upgrade promotion is going very nicely. As you know, has agreed to pay the setup charges to upgrade Fast Parts customers to Checkmate, which makes it just about free. Many Fast Parts users have taken them up on this offer. So if you have interest in adding pictures, barcoding, eBay sales, QuickBooks integration, extended warranty sales, or a host of other features that our Fast Parts system does not offer, please give me a call for all the details. Our conversion from Fast Parts to Checkmate includes on-site trainers, and because of the volume of yards who are converting and need training, we need about six weeks of lead time. Give me a call if you're interested in knowing more about the upgrade offer.

All of us here at the family including Fast Parts, Checkmate, and Car-Part Web Services wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a very prosperous New Year.

Thank you for your questions and comments.

Thank You!
