Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is spring, and time to think about new growth! Many of you have attended the Car-Part Industry Conference. At the conference, which will be held August 6-8, we will talk about methods to grow your business. Some of the ways we suggest to improve your business are based on statistically proven methods and some of our ideas are just common sense proven by your fellow recyclers. One thing you can know for sure, is that you will walk away from the conference with new ideas to try and new knowledge about the auto recycling industry you compete in. Give me a call if you need more information about our conference, or see for more information! Sign up today for the Early Bird discount.

Here at Car-Part, we leave no stone unturned while finding ways to increase your profit. Over the past several years, our programmers have been working on ways to use eBay more effectively. We are now proud to say that our eBay solution, Checkmate Listing Manager, is by far the best way to use eBay in the auto recycling industry. A substantial number of high-volume eBay sellers have switched to Checkmate from other inventory management systems because our eBay solution is that much better than the competition. This puts you, as a Fast Parts user, in a great position. While other recyclers are spending hundreds of dollars to convert to Checkmate, you can take advantage of our Fast Parts to Checkmate conversion promo and upgrade to Checkmate for little or no cost. There are many reasons to switch to Checkmate and I would like to review all the benefits you will receive with this upgrade. Don't wait – call me today!

Have you purchased a vehicle with Car-Part Salvage yet? Maybe you are not signed up for the weekly sale of vehicles in your area. If you want more information about buying vehicles from our online sales with Car-Part Salvage, please call.

Don't forget about all the great products Car-Part has introduced to the industry over the last few years – products like CrashLink for finding more interchange information, and Partmate, which has made the inventory method much easier and more reliable. It might be time you call me for an update on new products we offer to see if they would benefit your business. With your busy schedule, many times I hear from you that you didn't know we had a program that did that. When I make my calls to you, sometimes I don't catch you with time to talk, so if you find a time to call me when you have time we can catch up on your changing needs. Sometimes your business model changes and I may have just the tool to help meet a new need you have.

Here are a few questions I have for you: Have you reviewed your brokering partners lately? Do you have brokering partners? Are you making money with extended warranties? Have you looked at your website lately, and does it portray your business the way you want it to? Is all the information up-to-date with the newest social media links? Are you keeping up with the information of who is buying from you and who has been purchasing less? Does your web presence show the aftermarket parts you have available to you? Have you considered eBay for listing more parts? Is your business running as efficiently as possible? If these questions are giving you a headache, take two aspirin and give me a call. Think of it as a tune-up call for your business peace of mind.

Thanks for all the questions and comments. I will look forward to hearing from you soon!
