THE DOORS ARE OPEN!
As of today 5/13/20, we have re-opened our door to customers. There are a few restrictions that we ask our customers to follow: 1) We are only allowing 4 people in our building at a time. 2) Our front door is open for entry and placing your order and we ask that you then exit the side door to the East (right) of our front counter once you have received your parts. 3) If you have a wait for your parts please pay for your parts then go out and wait in your vehicle to allow us to serve the next customer in line and we will bring your parts out to you in your vehicle when they are ready. 4) Please observe 6 feet of social distancing between you and other customers. X’s have been placed on the floor to aid in keeping proper distancing.
We appreciate your patience and continued support of our company.
Let’s face it, there’s never a recycler that always has what you need. Did you know that even very successful recyclers only have the parts customers call for 30% or 40% of the time? This is called the “in-stock” request level and our computer systems track it.
Consultants in the used parts industry consider it a worthy achievement if a yard can hit a 50% in-stock level. This means that even when they do a great job monitoring a large number of salvage auctions they still end up having what their customers call for only about half the time! Why is this? Well, consider a dealership’s parts department for comparison. To keep their in-stock level up they have to stock parts for all of the models from one manufacturer and go back probably 8 to 10 years.
Compare that to a used parts supplier. To keep our in-stock level high we have to stock parts for every model from ALL manufacturers for 10 to 20 years! And to top it off, it’s even more difficult for us because used parts suppliers can’t just order the parts we need; we have to find whole vehicles to buy. That’s why salvage acquisition is what really sets a recycler apart.
Those recyclers that can fine tune their buying to keep the high demand parts in stock are the ones you want to do business with.
We have 6 buyers who constantly monitor auctions in 9 states to obtain the salvage that satisfies the parts needs of our customers. Our computer system collects our demand data and our buyers use it to bid on the vehicles that have the most parts, which will fill our customer’s requests. Our quarterly in-stock level exceeds 58% so when we say we’ve got the inventory you’re looking for, we really do.
Also if you buy from us we have a good chance of sourcing it from a recycler that we send our own delivery truck to so we can transport it from them back to us and then out to you with no extra shipping charges. We have the largest delivery coverage area of any independent recycler in Wisconsin or Minnesota. Our coverage area includes Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond Du Lac, Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Madison, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Eau Claire, Wausau, and more.
Another thing about those car part websites you might use, if you see a part you need at Bay or Sharp we can transport it to the other site at no charge overnight for pick up there or to deliver to you the next day.
Save money when you let us source parts for you. If we don’t have it we can often find it at another recycler within our huge coverage area. When you buy it from us we’ll pick it up from them and bring it to you on our trucks often with no additional shipping charges.
