Online service helps shops locate recycled parts.
Recycled parts sourcing service RealParts.com announced that California-based Coast Collision Centers has selected RealParts.com as its primary alternative for sourcing recycled parts.
“(RealParts.com) allows our folks to quickly and easily communicate our recycled parts needs to all of our preferred parts vendors. Parts availability is confirmed within minutes for actual parts that we can immediately order to complete repairs,” said Richard Fish, president and CEO of Coast Collision Centers. “Our centers have an average cycle time of about six calendar days, which means that we cannot mess around when sourcing our parts. RealParts.com has proven to be a tremendous tool in helping us to improve in this very important aspect of our business.”
Ken Weiss, president of RealParts.com, added, “The status quo doesn’t have to be. We appreciate Coast Collision Centers’ confidence in RealParts.com as well as their support in helping us revolutionize the way automobile repair shops source their recycled parts needs. Because Realparts.com is a true real-time application, the information is always current to-the-minute and more reliable than other products.”
Coast Collision Centers operates two Southern California facilities. Opened in 2005, its Carlsbad location is 27,000 square feet, while its Tustin location, opened in 2009, has a capacity of 23,000 square feet.
RealParts.com was founded in 2008. Its Internet application is currently available in four markets: Southern California, Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul and New England.
