VehicleOwnersGuide.com announced that CollisionPartsSource.com, a parts e-commerce platform, is now available for free to collision repair facilities in the United States and Canada. CollisionPartsSource.com creates a marketplace where collision repair facilities can list parts they have on hand for sale or trade to other collision repair facilities or publish a parts wish list. Parts suppliers or other collision repair facilities can view shops’ wish lists and submit offers via email directly to the repairer from CollisionPartsSource.com for the listed parts.
“We are excited to be able to facilitate the communications between collision users of parts and those that wish to provide them. Parts such as assemblies that are still usable but not returnable, uniside assemblies that are only partially used, or parts that weren’t returned for whatever reason and are in shops’ parts rooms can be made available to other repairers. Collision repairers are able to increase competition for their parts business by publishing their parts requirements on CollisionPartsSource.com, making them visible to more sources of parts without the need of contacting individual parts suppliers themselves," said Steven Siessman, president of VehicleOwnersGuide.com. “Users of our EstimateScrubber.com portal can also access CollisionPartsSource.com functionality directly from that website."
