Issue 93
September 2015
Hello Fast Parts® Users! has been working hard to bring you the best package of programs designed to put your parts where buyers can access them. When the professional crash repairers asked for a program that would show new, used, and aftermarket parts in their estimating system, Car-Part stepped up to take that challenge. We know the auto recycler can beat the new price almost every time and your parts help bring the cost of repairing vehicles down. The insurance companies know this and want more recycled parts showing up on their estimates. The Car-Part Pro online search and marketplace works to sell your recycled parts to the professional repair industry. Because that part of your sales market is growing, you need the exposure Car-Part Pro brings. Knowing how to put your parts in front of more buyers is what Car-Part does best!

Have you seen our CrashLink program lately? We have added to the effectiveness of this program by integrating with Car-Part Interchange Plus, an interchange enhancement that gives interchange numbers to parts that didn't have them before. CrashLink helps identify and sell many small parts that are normally crushed with the vehicles. That is another thing that Car-Part does well: helping you sell more parts off the vehicles you already have.

I have been calling many of you over the last few months telling you about the Car-Part Salvage program we started last year. Hundreds of you have signed up to buy vehicles with this program. Everyone likes the all-inclusive offer which includes our low buyer's fee, and the fact that only recyclers are allowed to make offers on these vehicles. We continue to find more sources for vehicles, and the volume of cars and trucks are growing by leaps and bounds. I have had many compliments on how easy it is to buy vehicles with Car-Part Salvage. You may not know this, but you can sell vehicles as well as buy vehicles with this program. So if you get a vehicle that does not fit your business model, you can put it in the sale with no fees. This program does not cost anything to join and you only pay a small fee if your offer is accepted. There is no good reason not to call me about signing up for Car-Part Salvage.

There aren't very many Fast Parts users left anymore. We are working hard to convert all of you to the Checkmate inventory management system. Before the end of the year, we should have Checkmate Part Images all over the search results, and you need to be a part of this new method of showing your parts. Checkmate makes it easy to show your customers pictures of your parts, giving you a competitive advantage when selling your parts online. Don't wait another day - give me a call about the Fast Parts conversion to Checkmate promotion. Converting your data is free and you will have so many new features. Checkmate's features are the ones you've been asking me for! Call me and let's talk about it.

Thanks for all your questions and comments last month. I think you set a record for new ideas for us to work on. I love how creative our users are and hope to talk to all of you soon.
