How do I handle shipping my idle parts once I sell them?

Shipping doesn’t have to be a difficult or expensive piece of the idle parts selling process.

With an idle parts management solution like OEC PartsBrokerDirect (PBD), you have the option to have your personal broker handle the shipping logistics for you. Send your broker the weights and measurements of your parts order and they will obtain quotes from shipping partners to find the best price for you.

There are no extra fees for your broker to handle shipping, you only pay for what you ship and the cost is directly billed to your parts statement. You also have the ability to review the shipping quotes and determine shipping constraints and pick-up times before confirming the shipments.

Once the shipping confirmation is complete, your broker sends confirmation to you via email with all of your shipping documents (i.e., bill of lading and shipping labels) for you to print. Tracking information is included in your confirmation and allows you to ensure that your shipments arrive as scheduled.

Shipping can be a big burden; we try to take away all of the added stress and wasted time to get you back to focusing on selling OE parts.
