Hello Fast Parts® Users!

This is my last chance to tell you about the 6th annual Car-Part Industry Conference! It will be August 7th through the 9th. You still have time to attend and fill up on all the news that affects your business. We have classes that will make you a better Fast Parts user or take advantage of the time to learn about Checkmate, the official upgrade to the Fast Parts system. Call me and we can talk about the conference and how it will change the way you think about your auto recycling business. The schedule of classes has been released and many of the subjects are new this year. Car-Part is bringing industry leaders together to talk about the changing landscape of selling used auto parts, as well as ways to expand your product lines. It takes most of us all we have to survive in this marketplace, and by attending this conference you will have the latest tools to make the most of what you have. If you have never been to one of our conferences please attend this one. You will be glad you did!

The Car-Part Pro Brokering program is attracting many more recyclers lately. By having the ability to show both all the parts you have as well as all the parts you can get, you will gain many more customers. You can choose a major vendor or you can try the ever-increasing list of specialty aftermarket suppliers now available. Call me for the current list. 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.

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 have the option of using this buying tool which can give you the information to know what each vehicle is worth to your individual auto recycling business. Bidmate calculates the value of parts on the vehicle from your sales history, and gives you a value you can rely on when you are bidding for the vehicle. With Advanced Bidmate, you can see search information, so you can see how popular parts are in the overall marketplace, 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, you can have this powerful tool for no charge for six months. This limited time offer is another reason for you to call me so we can have a discussion about all the options available when you upgrade from your Fast Parts system to the Checkmate system.

Have you signed up for Car-Part Salvage yet? This is one of my favorite new products to tell you about. Buy vehicles and pay less! Sound good? You will have less buyer's fees for the cars you buy. It is that simple. All you need to do is call me and I will get you signed up for this service. Just let me know how large of a territory you wish to buy in. No cost unless you buy a vehicle!

If you inventory your parts, you should be using Partmate. Tablet prices have gone down, and when you add the Partmate program to the many uses of the tablet, it makes for an unbeatable combination. Not only will it cut down on the time to inventory your parts, but it will make your effort much more reliable. Partmate features our exclusive SmartVin technology, so you will be given fewer interchange choices and the chance of selecting the wrong part is reduced. Partmate costs only $35 monthly, and a $75 one-time setup fee (with a six month commitment). This is one of the best values Car-Part has to offer!

I hope to see you at the conference and I will look forward to your calls.
