Riverdale Body Shop Selects RealParts.com

RealParts.com recently announced that Riverdale Body Shop has selected RealParts.com as its primary alternative for sourcing recycled parts.

Family owned and operated Riverdale has been in business in South Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana since 1970. It has eight locations, six in Illinois (Alsip, Chatham, Roseland, Chicago Heights, Dolton and Tinley Park) and two in Indiana (Highland and Schererville, its headquarters).

“Lean is important to our success,” said Riverdale President Larry Seida. “We don’t have time to chase parts any more than we can afford parts problems. RealParts is a practical solution for all of our recycled parts needs.”

Jim Wensel, Riverdale area manager, added, “RealParts.com allows all our stores to simply and easily communicate our recycled parts needs to all our valued recycled parts vendors. Quotes are confirmed live and received in minutes. Our vendors always know who they’re quoting and respond accordingly to our expectations. There are no misunderstandings.”

Ken Weiss, president of RealParts.com, said, “RealParts.com is as much a productivity tool as a recycled parts locator. Absolutely, RealParts helps repair shops locate more parts, but equally as important, RealParts eliminates the frustration and wasted time regularly associated with either confirming database information or making multiple phone calls, dealing with busy signals, automated attendants, hold time and promised callbacks.”

RealParts.com was founded in 2008. It’s easy-to-use Internet application is currently open to all repair shops and automotive recyclers in the continental U.S. For more information, call (888) 828-0014 or e-mail [email protected]. Collision and mechanical repair shops may also register for a 30-day free trial at www.realparts.com.
