Inventory Management

How do I ship car parts that another dealer buys from me?

​When choosing to sell parts to another dealership, the shipping logistics can be a concern.

While the buyer is ultimately responsible for shipping costs, it's up to the buyer and you to make those arrangements. Shipping arrangements can vary depending on the amount of parts within the order and the distance between your dealership and your buyer. Often times, if the buyer is local, they’ll send their delivery vehicles out to get the part, or you can have your delivery vans drive it over. Successful dealers utilizing the OEC solutions offer same-day or next-day delivery.
