All,

 

I regularly do JY runs in AZ, and in my business travels around the states I've started to stop in at JY's on my routes, and I've had some good success at finding parts for people, then shipping them.

 

What I'd like to propose is starting a Nissan Parts Scavenger Network where we can post "Wanted Parts", and then whenever people go to JY's, they can also look for those parts that people are needing, grab them, then ship them.

 

I'm not doing this to make money, and not proposing it as a money making venture, but more of a "Hook-a-brother/sister up" venture.

 

I currently advertise on IG or FB when I'm going on a JY run, and people have been sending me a note with things they need.  If I find it, I'll send a quick text with a pic of the part.  If it works for them, I'll get the part, clean it up if necessary, then send them a Paypal invoice for the cost of the part and the cost of the shipping.

 

So far, it's been a good way to help people get parts that are no longer available from Nissan.

 

Is there anyone else out there who would be interested in participating in this with me?

 

Please PM me or post here.

 

Admins, this shouldn't violate anything on the site Rules because I'm not advertising a business, but please let me know if there's a problem with this.

 

 

What do you guys/gals think?

 

Hans

This sounds like a great idea.  If it's something that you'd like to have formally organized on the forum in some way, it should definitely have a payment method like PayPal required so that seller and buyers can't get ripped off, especially by newbies popping in just to get a part.  I'd definitely be interested in helping folks out, especially with stuff that doesn't take much effort to pull or package as long as I'm already at the yard.

I also like this idea very much. I have about 30-40 junkyards within 10 miles of my house. One thing I believe should be more detailed is how to secure payment if the person wanting the part flakes and the has already been purchased.

Usually PayPal is what most people use.

Not sure if this was a reply to me but if so, I was referring to pre-payment so parts are not purchased then the buyer flakes and doesn’t want part and now “scavenger” is left with a random part.
