There are certain parts in your warehouse that you will always need in stock… and others, never again. The “do not need” pile of parts don’t have to sit heavy on your shelf or heavy on your cash flow. In fact these days, there is ample money to be made in obsolete parts among dealers.

There are several ways to go about getting rid of your obsolete parts, and replace them with ones you do need along the way. The best way to network today isn’t around the neighborhood - it’s online. Online parts locators have become the modern day platform for dealers to “turn scrap into cash.” Even better, an online parts locator is available 24/7, meaning you can find and sell parts as soon as you need to. And with technology today, you can search or list stock information to prospects across the entire globe.
