Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I can see that spring has sprung and that means it is time to think about new growth. How can you get some new growth out of your recycling business? Car-Part has some great new products to help you add revenue to your used parts sales. If you are watching the changing landscape of the automotive recycling industry, you already know you need to broaden your market by selling other people's parts. Brokering aftermarket parts and forming buying alliances with other auto recyclers will keep your profits where you need them to be in this tough market place. Doing business the old way doesn't cut it any longer. Car-Part has designed programs to help you stay competitive. Call me and let's go over the products and see which ones may help you thrive in this time of rapid change.

The thought I have this month is to help you make more money with the inventory you have on hand. Brokering parts is a great way to increase your inventory online without investing in more physical inventory. Another way to increase profit is by selling more parts off the vehicles you already have. I think Car-Part has the answer to this also. CrashLink can identify more parts on your vehicles, giving you additional interchange information so you can sell those smaller parts that you may not have made available for sale in the past. The same diagrams the body shops and mechanics use are available to you in CrashLink. This gives you a much better understanding of which smaller parts they need in addition to your major parts. When you sell major components, most likely there are smaller parts you could add to your sale. Those sales are pure profit, and make a big difference in your profit margin. Get in touch with me and we can go over how CrashLink can help you.

There is still time for you to decide what time of year makes sense to convert to Checkmate. We are glad many of you decided to make the switch this last winter. Now, we are busy making reservations for our trainers. They will travel to your area to give you the hands-on training that makes the conversion process so easy. With our current Conversion Promo, we give you a chance to try out some new programs like Partmate, Bidmate, and many Car-Part web products you may not have used before. You can try them free for the first six months after your conversion. Take this opportunity to see just how profitable Car-Part can help you be. If you decide to keep the new products, you will not have to pay setup for those programs. This is a real savings for those quality programs! If you're not already in the process of talking with your regional Checkmate representative about converting, give me a call so I can put you two together. This conversion needs to happen, so please let me help you plan for the best time to make it happen.

If you are reading this and have not talked to me in the last 30 days, you are one of those busy recyclers who needs to call me when it is convenient for you. It is important for us to decide when and how you would like to convert from Fast Parts to Checkmate. I will give you all the options and you can choose the best plan for you. Thanks for all the questions and comments and keep them coming.
