2500 Professional Repairers Join's New Recycled Parts Market in the First 50 Days

FT. WRIGHT, KENTUCKY, May 15, 2012 — 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 2500 professional repairers who joined 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

Recyclers' local delivery times are fastest when parts come from the warehouse, but when parts are still on a vehicle the delivery times can vary based on the dismantling process. Some recyclers have robust overnight shipping networks and often can deliver a part next-day from their distribution networks. The buyer simply chooses when the part is needed, and all parts meeting that delivery selection will show in the results.

If you 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 ARA international part grading standards, and disclose whether their body part pricing system uses actual or undamaged pricing. Certifications are an easy way to buy safe and green! Car-Part Pro offers a summary of a recycler's certifications, affiliations, and business practices.

By integrating real-time communication into the workflow, Live Service allows buyer and seller to communicate their needs quickly and efficiently while maintaining a written record of the transaction. 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. For more information about Car-Part Pro or to sign up, visit or call 859-344-1925.
