CarPartPro.com is a new marketplace designed to serve the needs of the collision and mechanical repair industries by simplifying the process of finding quality recycled parts. Shops and appraisers choose their desired delivery time, warranty, recycler certification and part quality, along with other service levels, and see only those parts that fit cycle time and other requirements. The results show parts with all-inclusive prices, including the requested service levels.
“The 2,500 professional repairers who joined CarPartPro.com in our first 50 days are validating our vision that shops’ and appraisers’ online parts store needs to be simple and show buyers only parts that meet all of their needs, while providing instant access to sellers’ staff,” said Jeff Schroder, co-founder and CEO of Car-Part.com
If a repairer see parts from an unfamiliar recycler, Car-Part has three certification levels: gold, silver and bronze. These certifications deal with services recyclers offer to professional buyers. Car-Part Gold certified recyclers offer a one-year warranty option, have a 30-day refund policy, deliver parts to professional shops, grade parts using Automotive Recyclers Association international part grading standards, and disclose whether their body part pricing system uses actual or undamaged pricing.
By integrating real-time communication into the workflow, Live Service allows buyers and sellers to communicate their needs quickly and efficiently while maintaining a written record of the transaction. And Car-Part.com says that Car-Part Pro can easily be integrated into third-party applications such as workflow, estimating and shop management.
Car-Part Pro is available at no charge to professional collision and mechanical shops, as well as recyclers subscribing to the Car-Part Gold service. Insurers receive a 90-day free trial.
