Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I hope your New Year has started out with a bang and not a thud. If you are looking to put a little "zing" in your auto parts sales numbers, I want you to think about Car-Part and all the new ways we have developed to sell more parts, to more people for more profit. The first and largest improvement you can make is to convert your inventory system from Fast Parts to Checkmate. There are many reasons to switch, and here are a few:
  • Taking photos of your parts
  • Barcoding
  • eBay sales
  • QuickBooks integration
  • Extended warranty sales
  • A Dashboard that shows important sales statistics in real time
In addition to these, there are a host of other features that our Fast Parts system does not offer. Just about all the newest money-making features can be yours for no setup charge and no cost for the first six months. It is as easy as trying out features for six months, seeing which ones make sense to your company's business plan, and cancelling the ones you don't care for. Remember that Checkmate is the update for your Fast Parts system. Don't wait until your Fast Parts Linux server goes bad. Call me now so you will know about all the advantages of upgrading to the all-new Checkmate inventory management system. Don't forget: with Checkmate, you can bundle Car-Part services and get even better prices than you have now!

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 (it's free to sign up). Just let me know how large of a territory you wish to buy in. No cost unless you buy a vehicle.

The Car Part Brokering program is attracting many more recyclers lately. When you have the ability to show all the parts you have and all the parts you can get, you 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 brokering 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.

If you inventory your parts, you should be using Partmate. The price of tablets has come 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!

One of the vendors you may have been purchasing supplies from has stopped selling Fast Parts invoices, but no worries. You can call us here at Fast Parts (800-288-7414). We stock the invoices you need. To call me about Car-Part, Fast Parts, and Checkmate products, or for information on converting to Checkmate, use my direct number to reach me: 800-288-7415.

Thanks for all your calls and let's make this year the best year for used auto parts sales ever. I know we can help each other reach our goals. Call me today!
