Finding used parts at an Auto Wrecker, often referred to as a Junk Yard, can save lots of money. These parts are not new and come off of wrecked vehicles. Post a new topic if you have questions or suggestions.
I remember that some of my friends were starting to sell used catalytic converters. They told me that it is very profitable, around 500-600$ for one piece. I was very interested in making some cash because I had an old Cadillac in my backyard. But, I found an offer on https://www.scrapi.com/scrap-car-calculator. It was more attractive than my friend's one. I got the money very fast in my bank account. Also, the next day two guys came and took it away from me. In this way, I saved a lot of time, made some money, and got rid of something old.
We have a chain of physical automotive parts stores and we would like to build an e-commerce platform to sell parts. However, we have a problem finding data sources for the parts catalogs. Our e-commerce platform is ready to source the parts data from an ACES (Aftermarket Catalog Exchange Standard) based data source.
Do you guys have any suggestions as to where we can source the data we need for our system? All insights are appreciated.
