Be realistic. How much of your valuable space is taken up by spare parts that you probably won’t use or sell in the near future? If you’re a dealer of agricultural, green- and lawn care, or material handling equipment, chances are that you have a large stock of spare parts. While a good portion of those are used for repairs and sold often, a large chunk of this stock (approximately 30%) is slow moving and obsolete.
Valuable warehouse space
These are the parts that have become less common, and are no longer useful for you or your customers. However, they are still new and unused. Perhaps you have certain parts in stock for a relatively small number of customers with a specific machine, or parts that have become obsolete due to technical innovations or change of lead brand at your dealership. What to do with this dead capital taking up your valuable warehouse space? This is where BartsParts comes into play.
Arno Verkleij, founder of BartsParts: ‘We noticed this as a common issue for all spare parts dealers in different countries: huge stocks of slow-moving spare parts catching dust on dealers’ shelves, with low sales possibilities among their respective customers. After ten years, these spare parts are usually scrapped. Not only is this bad for the environment on multiple levels, it is also unnecessary, as there is still always someone that could use the spare parts. Key is to start offering the slow moving parts to a broad market, outside of your own dealer region before they really become obsolete!”
The main problem is that selling spare parts outside of the dealer’s working area can be a challenge. Arno: ‘Many sellers do not know where, when and how to start. Besides, it can take up a lot of valuable time. At BartsParts, we are passionate about connecting sellers and buyers in the most convenient way possible. We serve as the missing link between those who want to get rid of parts and those who need them. We offer a unique service.’
BartsParts makes the maximum effort to minimize yours. The selling process can be broken down into five very simple and intuitive steps, of which most are executed by BartsParts and require barely any effort from the seller. This already shows at the very first step. ‘The first thing we ask you to do is to make an Excel list of the spare parts you want to sell. But we can also connect directly to your ERP software.’
‘We accept any relevant brand, all products/types, all ages, and all locations’, Arno continues. ‘Your parts are uploaded into our online virtual warehouse, after which we handle the entire sales process. Our web shop reaches thousands of customers worldwide every day, which increases the selling chances of your obsolete stock. When your spare parts are sold, you only need to grab and pack the items. We’ll take care of the rest and make sure that your parts are picked up and delivered to the buyer. You can then invoice and receive your money immediately. We already generate sales for more than 1,000 dealer outlets across Europe.
