Hello Fast Parts® Users!

This month, I thought I would speak about solutions for smaller auto recyclers. You know who you are. You have 2-6 employees and besides selling used parts, you run other businesses at the same location. Maybe you see your business as being a towing business, or used cars sales. Maybe you're a mechanic or body shop and you also sell used parts. Car-Part has a product that can help you sell more used parts with little or no more effort on your busy work schedule. You can increase your sales by doing a few easy and inexpensive changes to what you do today.

You have a Fast Parts system that gives you the ability to inventory your vehicles and show them on, the best used parts sales solution in the marketplace. Several things have to happen to get the best results with these tools: first, you need to physically inventory your vehicles. Our solution to make that happen quickly and with little effort is the Partmate inventory tool. Partmate will get your inventory showing online quicker and it will cost you less in time and money. If you don't have Partmate, call me now! No excuses.

I know that when your used parts sales are down, it is hard to think about spending time on that part of your business, but Car-Part has solutions to increase your sales and you need to listen so you can know what options are available. If you're a small yard, you need to sell more parts off each vehicle you purchase. We have a product that will help you do just that: CrashLink shows you thousands of small parts and what they interchange with so you can quickly sell those smaller parts. Crashlink also gives you current dealership prices on those parts, so you will know how best to price them. Car-Part is working to add interchange information on more parts so you can show them on your websites and make more sales.

Have you looked at your website lately? Do you have a website? For very little money, the Car-Part web design team can develop a website for your business and can host it. This is not complicated. We do all the work and you get all the sales from the professional looking website built specifically for your business. You don't have to have an ugly website! Give Car-Part a call and talk to a web designer to make your presence on the web something you will be proud of.

As a small auto recycler, the following solution is the most difficult to understand, but it is the most important product I can offer you. Upgrading your Fast Parts inventory system allows us to offer you all the new tools that modern technology has to offer. For very little cost (and in some cases no cost), we can convert your Fast Parts system to the advanced Checkmate system. You need this conversion even more than the bigger recyclers. The small yards have always been able to be more efficient than the slow moving large yards. That's what makes the small auto recycler great. With the new tools that the Checkmate system offers, you can continue to keep your competitive advantage. Checkmate is all about options! You can choose which tools make sense to your business. With our Fast Parts to Checkmate promotion, you keep your current monthly fee for six months and we let you test drive the new products we have developed at no cost. At the end of the six months, you let us know which ones you want to keep. I can't think of a better way to introduce you to all the new products Car-Part has developed for you. Call me and let's have a conversation about all the solutions I have for small yards. To the big yards, I have not left you out. Checkmate has many options for you too!

As always, I enjoy talking with you. Please call me with your questions and comments. Remember, the only dumb question is the one you didn't ask. Thanks and call me soon.

Thank you!
