Hello Fast Parts® Users!

The subject I would like to talk about today is "choices." The Car-Part suite of products allows you to choose which level of service you think will be best for your business. Car-Part allows you to order individual products, or group products in a bundle to receive discounts for these services. When you decide to switch from Fast Parts to Checkmate, keep the bundle price in mind to maximize your purchasing value. Most of our Fast Parts users, when switching to Checkmate, picked a bundle to make the first 6 months a trial period for new products like Partmate and all of our Car-Part Gold features. Remember, for the first 6 months you pay the same as you are paying now and can try out these great products for no additional charge. Car Part has made this offer so you will have the knowledge to make the best choices for your growing used parts business.

Why should you chose to try Car-Part Gold now? We have been doing some research and have found a large group of buyers of used parts are using the Car-Part app to find and purchase parts from auto recyclers. With Car-Part Gold, you show up on smartphones and tablets in a view that is made for those screens. This took Car-Part a large amount of time and effort, but I believe you will see the selling benefit from this effort. Car-Part went the extra mile to put your parts where the buyers are and give buyers the choice to buy your parts.

Car-Part Gold has many more features designed to improve your visibility to businesses that buy the bulk of used parts sold today in the U.S. One of those features is Car-Part Pro. Car-Part Pro is sweeping the professional automotive repair industry by making your parts available in ways that are most convenient and attractive to these buyers. Just ask a body shop, large mechanic shop, or insurance adjuster, and they will let you know about seeing your parts with Car-Part Pro.

What about showing pictures of your parts on Yes, you will need Car-Part Gold in order to include photos of your parts in your online part listings. I have heard great things from our users about adding pictures. They are saying that by choosing to add images to their online part listings, they are selling more parts. Photos in part listings include not only photos of the individual part, but also of the entire vehicle. Important fact: because these vehicle pictures show more parts, they essentially advertise more of your inventory. With your new Checkmate system, you will be able to upload your pictures with ease. Our helpful trainers can go over the process and make this additional inventory step easy to navigate.

Like I described in last month's newsletter, we have added even more incentives to make it easier for you to convert from Fast Parts to Checkmate. There is the $100 credit, extra day of on-site installation (making it 3 days), price freeze for 6 months, and up to 3 free AlphaCom licenses to get your computers talking to each other - just to name a few. These extra incentives are for a limited time, so call me today to discuss your choices.

We know you have many choices to make as an auto recycler. Car-Part works hard to help you make good choices with our great products. Only you know what tools you will need to make your business successful, so give me a call and we can talk about a great choice for you.

Thanks for all your questions and comments and for the 20+ Fast Parts users who made the choice to upgrade to Checkmate last month. We will be installing Checkmate way into January now, so call soon for your installation date.
