Hello Fast Parts® Users!

Some of the most important decisions are being made now in your auto recycling industry. Your fellow recyclers are trying to forecast the business technologies they will need to succeed over the next few years. The changing landscape of our industry makes these decisions critical for your success. The importance of good information gathered from experts and peers has never been greater. This is why I am inviting you to attend the 6th annual Car Part Industry Conference, this August 7-9. You still have time to get the Early Bird special if you act quickly! Click here to get more information and register today.

The Fast Parts to Checkmate conversion promotion is still in full swing. I have enjoyed seeing our long-time Fast Parts users upgrade to the newer technology that the Checkmate system offers. It was time for Fast Parts to re-write our software to keep up with the changing needs of our auto recycling industry, but everything we would have done to Fast Parts in a re-write is included in Checkmate, including the new look you were asking for. I am happy you will not have to wait for Fast Parts to re-write the system, because it is ready for you now in Checkmate. This conversion promotion allows you to convert most of your data to the Checkmate system at no cost, including inventory and customer data. If you have not converted yet, give me a call so you can learn all the facts about this important improvement to your business.

I always like to announce new services that will help you with your auto recycling business, and Car-Part is coming out with a service that you have been asking for. We are working on Car-Part Salvage, which provides you the opportunity to bid on and potentially acquire salvage and fleet vehicles directly from vehicle sellers. I have a form you can sign to be in on the launch of Car-Part Salvage. Call me when you have a chance so you can find out more about this service. I think you will agree that this service will be a great way to purchase vehicles at a reasonable price.

For all the Car-Part Pro users, we are giving you a free trial to see which brokers you can use that make you the most money. Many of you chose a major vendor to team up with, but because Car-Part is giving you this free trial, it's a good time to try some more vendors. How about making the 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.

The hot summer sun is just around the corner and the tags you have on those loose parts will fade and be unreadable soon if you have not switched to the new thermal tag printer that is offered to 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 Checkmate, 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 product.

Thanks for all your questions and comments. Feel free to call me about any questions you may have. My direct number is 800-288-7415 or you can email me at

Thanks again,

boB Clark
