Partnership allows network of more than 650 businesses access to parts procurement platform.
PartsCheck Live has announced a vendor partner agreement with Collision Automotive Repair Services Inc. (CARS). The partnership allows CARS’ member-shareholder network of more than 650 businesses throughout the U.S. to obtain parts through the procurement platform.
"PartsCheck Live is looking forward to servicing the CARS Shareholder-Member Network throughout the United States for their parts procurement needs," said Armin Price, PartsCheck Live’s senior vice president of business development. "I feel that the use of our solution will optimize the search for parts by every CARS member in a much broader market space, satisfying their need for timely delivery of parts while maximizing the profitability of every purchase. We are looking forward to a long-term relationship with the CARS organization to be their vendor management partner."
Added Brad Desaulniers, PartsCheck Live CEO, "We strive to deliver a comprehensive package of vendor management services within our proprietary online marketplace. Our partnership with the CARS co-op creates a truly unique opportunity to leverage the purchasing power of literally hundreds of independent shop owners and PartsCheck’s national supply chain to deliver tremendous value for both buyers and sellers in today’s increasingly complex parts market.
"For example, by joining the PartsCheck marketplace, CARS shareholders will get access to unparalleled pricing and profit from purchases of surplus OE parts from our unique national partners pricing that cannot be found anywhere else outside of the PartsCheck marketplace. By partnering with parts vendors to deliver the best possible volume discounts and with shop networks to deliver volume to our vendor partners, everyone wins. We could not be more thrilled than we are by our new relationship with CARS and all the possibilities it creates for both our organizations."
"This partnership provides our members access to PartsCheck’s national supply chain, as well as [including] local market providers," said Orville Manuel, executive director of CARS Inc. "This combination provides opportunities for tremendous value based on what best meets the needs and situation of both buyers and sellers, resulting in a healthy marketplace."
