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?
