Hello Fast Parts® Users!

How can Car-Part be a better working partner in your auto recycling business? I am always here to listen to your comments and suggestions about making the Car-Part tools better and more user-friendly so you can get the most out of them. I think you will agree that the latest Checkmate program is far and away the most complete auto recycling management system available today. Car-Part is supplying you with this tool for little or no cost. Our effort to replace the outdated Fast Parts system is slowly drawing to an end. All but a few dozen Fast Parts systems have been replaced and we are ready to start the process of converting your system today. Please take the time to call me so we can help you make the switch to Checkmate. I promise we can show you a way to make this an easy adjustment that will end up making your business more profitable and easier to run. Call me today!

One of the questions I am asked most often is, "what do I need to do to make more money?" There are two sides to that question in our unique industry. The first side is to sell more parts and the second side is to buy better vehicles for less money. As your working partner, we have engineered programs that can create opportunities to increase sales and purchase vehicles at better prices.

The Car-Part Pro effort has given the professional auto mechanic better access to your recycled parts, allowing them to buy online with the same ease as buying new parts. Insurance companies are now encouraging shops to use more of your recycled parts with the Car-Part Pro tool. Because it saves them money and it is as easy as buying new parts, many body shops and mechanics are purchasing more used parts from you, the auto recycler. The process takes a little extra organization but the benefits can be more than worth it. Let's have a conversation about what it will take to make Car-Part Pro a part of your business.

To helping you with buying better vehicles at the best prices, we have developed an online product called Car-Part Salvage. This service puts you together with insurance companies, tow lots, and any business that has vehicles they need to sell. You can buy at a lower price because the buyer fees are much lower and only auto recyclers are bidding on these vehicles. The vehicle sellers like it because they get to sell to you, the recycler, without all the expense of the middle men. There is no charge for signing up, so if you have not signed up for this service, call me today. We are processing more and more vehicles every day and once you have signed up, we will call you when there is a sale in your area.

One trick you might want try is Car-Part Brokering. This increases the amount of parts you offer for sale without adding to your inventory. All you need is Car-Part Gold and you can show parts from your participating vendors or partner yards as inventory that you can supply. It is no good to just show what you have in stock - you also need to show what you can get. Remember, your customers are looking up parts they want to purchase on smartphones and tablets, and if you do not subscribe to Car-Part Gold, they are not seeing you. Car-Part invested in designing new programs so you could be seen on the smart phones and tablet. The ability to increase the amount of people viewing your parts is only on Car-Part Gold.

I enjoyed all the calls last month so keep the questions and suggestions coming. Thanks for allowing Car-Part to be a working partner with you and your recycling business.
