As the steward of a large rural area auto recycling facility, I needed a better
way to sell the unsold parts in our yard. Being right on the edge of west Texas,
located in Graham, we just didn't have the population to sell all those parts from
the salvage vehicles that came our way. In other words, the parts from a 1996 Jaguar
didn't sell so well in Young County. But I found that by marketing and placing ads
online, this type of salvage seemed to do quite well.
There was still a lot of "hit or miss". The problem was a lack of a website focused on our industry and this niche of customers. Putting ads on other websites, built for other purposes, wasn't easy. It cost a lot of money and time to list all those parts, post the photos, sift through all those unqualified emails wanting you to send more pictures. Well, it's that frustration that fueled the creation of this website-based marketplace we call PartingOut.com.
We saw the need for a site that lets buyers and sellers for recycled parts get to the point of sale more easily. PartingOut.com is designed like a funnel to get the serious buyer and seller to the table and a deal made in the shortest amount of steps – while allowing the undecided user a little more time to think things through and weigh out their options.
Whether you're visiting for the first time, or a regular customer, we'd like to say "Welcome" and "Thanks for stopping by!"
We designed PartingOut.com to offer the best possible solution in 3 areas:
Whether you have one vehicle or many, you know the demand for recycled auto parts is huge. It can be challenging connecting with the right buyer, resulting in too many parts unsold. In the past, many deals were lost because of the markup between multiple vendors. Now, through PartingOut.com, you can connect and negotiate directly with your potential buyers, resulting in more sales and more profit. Plus, we make it easy to list multiple parts, get qualified offers, negotiate, and complete the transaction.
Tired of calling around to recyclers trying to locate the exact part you need, only to hear "no" too many times? PartingOut.com changes this. Not only can you save money by dealing directly with the seller, you are able to find the exact part you need, in real time. Not finding what you're looking for? No problem! Post a "Parts Wanted" ad for what you need and let the sellers come to you! Or, if you see a vehicle, but the part you want is not listed, post a "Buyer Listed Part" and make an offer on it in one step!
Anytime you can raise or create a more efficient method for doing something purely by doing it with less motion and energy the world has gained something. PartingOut, together with you, is part of the solution. When recycling expands, jobs are created - green recycling jobs. Ones that allow both the professional recycler and the novice to participate in the wonderful thing we call free enterprise.
Care for yourself, care for others, care about the earth. Be truthful in how you do business it will give your mind and body rest.
