Hello Fast Parts® Users!

There has been so much good news here at, it is hard to know where to start! Just recently, Checkmate became the #1 management system on, with more recyclers in this recycled parts marketplace running Checkmate than any other management system! There really is no better time than this to upgrade to the Checkmate system!

Just because you change from Fast Parts to Checkmate does not mean you need to hire more people or change the way you do business. Give me the opportunity to show you a way to pay less than you pay now and change to Checkmate. It does not have to cost more to have an upgraded inventory management system with up-to-date interchange. With your Checkmate upgrade, I can give you a discounted monthly price if you also use several services from as well. We are also offering you an extra day of on-site training, making it 3 total days of training at no cost to you, and there will be no charge for our connecting software (AlphaCom - a $25 per license value). There are even more great incentives available right now, so call me soon for all the details. All of these offers are only for a limited time, so contact me and we can discuss the options we have to make this change a positive one for you.

One of the most important challenges for Car-Part is to increase the number of recycled parts that are sold nationally. Our goal is to make the percent of recycled parts sold, higher than new and aftermarket parts. This will increase the demand for your parts and as a result, you will sell more parts. For the past several years, we have been working with high-volume auto body and repair shops to make your parts easier to purchase, which has increased the percent of recycled parts that are purchased in these repair facilities. Your parts are now in greater demand and all you need to do is join the Car-Part effort to show your parts to the buyers requesting them. Call me to talk about how you can begin listing your parts on the Car Part Pro marketplace for these professionals.

Making more sales does not always mean purchasing more inventory. When you use our Brokering services to broker parts on Car Part Pro and on your own website, you can increase sales without increasing physical inventory. Our latest data shows that over 40% of the parts that body shops and mechanic shops put on estimates with Car Part Pro are brokered parts. What are brokered parts? They are parts you can get from other recyclers or parts suppliers like aftermarket, rebuilt, and new auto parts. can show your potential customers the parts you have and the parts you have access to by showing their inventory on your website that your customers see. You can show as many parts as the biggest auto recyclers anywhere. Think of yourself as an auto parts distributor, not just a used parts seller. Don't forget you can start putting part images on marketplaces when you convert to Checkmate. Showing pictures of your parts will really boost your sales.

To help you buy 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 businesses that have 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 expenses of the middle men. We are processing more and more vehicles every day and once you've signed up, we will notify you when there is a sale in your area. There is no charge for signing up, so if you have not signed up for this service, call me today.

I want to thank all the great Fast Parts users who I spoke with this past month about converting to Checkmate. Your questions and comments help me determine how best to go forward with your conversion and make it easy for you to upgrade. I will talk to you soon...
