Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is that time of year for all of us to reflect on how good the year has been to us. I hope you all are doing well. I just had a phone conversation with a good friend and longtime Fast Parts user who has had some bad luck. His building has burned down and he is going through the many obstacles of putting his business back together. When this kind of catastrophe hits, there are many lessons to be learned. The lesson I would like to stress is to back up your inventory data and take it away from your business or have a fireproof safe to store them in. Don't get caught with both your backups and computer in the same fire. Car-Part is working with my friend to rebuild his files from his uploads, but not all the data is saved when you upload to Please learn from this misfortune and use good backup procedures to protect your data.

Lately, several other Fast Parts yards have had issues with their computers wearing out due to age. When this happens, I am able to replace the Fast Parts inventory system with the new and improved Checkmate system. I am happy that I have this option - it saves the Fast Parts users a substantial amount of money because they don't have to purchase the expensive and outdated Linux computer. When converting to Checkmate, you can save hundreds of dollars by using the latest Windows computers that are on sale in local stores. The best thing is that when you update to Checkmate, you will get all the new programs that are designed to make it more profitable to run an auto recycling business. We still have the Fast Parts to Checkmate conversion promo going on, which makes the process easy and almost free. Please give me a call for more information.

I want to talk for a moment about the Checkmate Sales Pro that is in Beta release now. It is a very exciting improvement to Checkmate that brings all the newest technologies from Windows and makes the process of using the program much more user-friendly. This mouse-driven program is very intuitive and makes the Find and Sell process much simpler than the traditional character-based commands. Call me and let me set up a demo so you can see the many benefits you will take advantage of by converting to Checkmate.

One of the vendors has stopped selling Fast Parts invoices, but no worries. You can call us here at Fast Parts 800-288-7414 and we stock the invoices you need. To call me about Car-Part products or converting to Checkmate use my direct sales number: 800-288-7415.

Thanks for all your comments and questions. We here at the Car-Part family of companies want to wish you Season's Greetings and a safe and prosperous New Year.
