CarParts.com CEO: We’re looking to ‘pass on savings’ amid inflation

welcome back sticking with the recent,earnings reports that have hit the tape,lace lately and were focusing now on,the auto world where shares of,carpartz.com on the move this morning up,over three percent thats after the,company posted record quarterly sales of,176.2 million dollars thats up 12,on the year for more on this were,joined by ceo of the company david,mignon appreciate you stopping by this,morning david uh you know one read on,this because you live kind of in the,auto repair maintenance uh part of this,industry is that people are maybe having,bought cars during the pandemic taking,the time now to service them as maybe,they get back on the road what do you,see as the demand for your business and,kind of the car repair industry in 2022,thanks for having me brian you know what,i think is is happening right now is,that the consumer is under a lot of,pressure so if youre looking at,interest rates gas prices you know,inflation across the board for first,necessities there is a need for the,customer to find savings wherever they,can uh you know at carparks.com we sell,mostly replacement parts collision,replacement mechanical its factory,direct its the same quality as you can,find in the brick and mortar uh but its,lower price so i think were well,positioned to capture some of that,demand and help the consumer get back on,the road uh in an affordable way yeah,david lets build on that point because,you know you talk about consumers trying,to save money at the same time for those,who are looking to go out and get a new,car may not necessarily be able to get,their hands on one there is a supply,issue theres also a cost issue with,rates going up as well how big of a,tailwind has it been on your end,yeah were actually seeing it and whats,whats been happening is that the cars,are staying on the road longer um you,know theres 300 million vehicles on the,road today the average age of a car on,the road believe it or not is 12.2 years,so the average american drives an older,car usually the third or fourth owner uh,so theres an opportunity for us to,capture some of that demand because you,want to keep that car running longer,because a new car is just too expensive,or interest rates on a consumer loan are,just too high and you just cant afford,it uh david im thinking about the,inflation side of this story because i,imagine that youre feeling both sides,right theres a higher demand as you,outline four car parts given where we,are in this cycle but then secondly you,might also be experiencing the supply,chain issues with you know covert,related things maybe ukraine related,things choking up the availability of,those parts are you still raising prices,now or are you starting to see some,pushback from consumers if you do try to,do that,yeah i mean you guys cover this all the,time there is inflationary pressure,across the board theres freight theres,transportation theres labor theres,cost of goods you know ultimately for us,what we see is an opportunity to just,you know double down on efficiencies and,figure out ways to get the best product,at the cheapest price so that we can,pass on those savings to the customer,again like ive said it ive said it the,customer is getting squeezed so we have,an opportunity to figure out a way to,provide more value to the customer at,more reasonable prices what does that,pipeline look like for you going into,year end i mean you know id imagine now,youre not experiencing the kind of,supply disruptions that you did early on,in the pandemic but certainly a lot of,concerns going into the second half,already in the second half of the year,towards the end of the year,when you talk about try to improve,efficiencies i mean what are the biggest,concerns you have,i mean were feeling good about the,second half of the year uh we came out,yesterday and said that you know,investors can expect double-digit,year-over-year growth you know some of,it is due to the environment but a lot,of it is due to the investments that,weve made over the last three years you,know what weve done is weve really,loaded up on inventory for the last two,years uh weve made it a point to carry,as much inventory as possible so that,when there is a demand increase we have,it you know again our business is very,technical in that its fit specific,parts and we sell parts that fit a,specific vehicle and in our in our,business either you have it or you dont,so you know we made it a point to carry,as much inventory as we could,so uh i guess if we could talk about,another kind of trend here electric,vehicles right rising gas prices have,incentivized a lot of people to get into,ev vehicles thats going to be a bigger,part of the market going forward,whats the parts industry like for ev,cars i mean obviously they all have,wheels im sure the things that can be,crossed over but i imagine there are,also kind of proprietary parts that are,going to be unique to ev,evs themselves that you need to source,as well what do you see in terms of the,growing need on that side,yeah listen for us evs and hybrids are a,huge opportunity in terms of expanding,that assortment um i think there is a,misconception that you know there are,unique parts but 90,of the parts that we sell are agnostic,to the powertrain so if you look at,everything outside of the car anything,in the wheelbase all of that carries,over so i think for us you know our,supply chain our data and catalog our,technology and our customer experience,really carries over uh what we need to,do as a company is really invest we need,to invest in growing that assortment we,need to invest in building a destination,for ev drivers to find their part so for,me its a trend but its also a huge,opportunity

Installing My SECOND Bumper From carparts.com

weve got something big so the first,time I got this bumper it came in a big,wide box that fit the whole bumper this,one is completely folded,[Music],I dont think bumpers should look like,this this is literally the weirdest,thing Ive ever seen,Ive never my other bumper didnt look,like this,when it came in what is going on guys I,hope you guys are having a wonderful day,my hair is a little bit different from,the last time you guys saw me a little,bit a little bit purple now but this is,weird because I was excited to put my,new bumper on today and it looks how I,just showed it in the beginning so quick,back story I got a new rear bumper,because the rear bumper originally on,here was cracked instead of having to,fix I said Frick it Im gonna get a new,bumper so I did then I got it and,theres a big crack in it which Ill,show you guys here in a second so I said,Im gonna reach out to car parts calm,and say you know theres a crack in it,heres some pictures the box was a,little damaged my god is there anybody,get a new one so all that happened all,that last about three weeks until I,finally got them to say okay well send,you a new bumper and theyve sendin me,this bumper thats completely folded in,half and I dont know why its folded in,half and Marshall were supposed to come,fold in half Im not sure the other one,supposed to be full enough and didnt,but this one feels like a different,material now and I dont know if its,gonna even fit anymore so Im gonna try,to throw it on,but so far carpets look car parts calm,you guys are failing me terribly because,I dont know what the hell this is,[Music],[Music],you can clearly see here by the first,bumper this sent me these boxes nothing,werent the same now people are gonna be,like why would you get a whole new,bumper why would I get new bumpers its,a tiny crack and and heres the issue,with that you buy a car part and expect,it to be perfect and pristine and when,you buy a car part and theres a crack,in it you know the first thing that I,have is Im gonna get a replace because,Im what the car looks good thats half,the reason I bought new bumpers for it,was so it looks good,they sent me stuff that was broken does,flawed so I said hey can you guys send,me new one took a while took a lot of,people to go through but I finally got,one sent to me in a box its too small,so they folded it in half I dont know,if anyone else has ever had this before,Ive never had a bumper get sent to me,in half Ive never had car parts debts,that have been half this is exactly what,thorough flex is and its not good,quality and its not good at all so now,Im here and this sucks because Im just,trying to make this a good car with a,bumper has folded in half so I cant I,dont think I can put this on today,because I went to my friends and they,said that you should wait and leave it,in the Sun I could heat gun it probably,I could squeeze on the car but I think,Im gonna just let it off until tomorrow,so Im gonna have it baking in the Sun,until it unfolds completely by itself so,Im not forcing it so it doesnt break,again I dont know whats going on with,this folded bumper stuff Im not sure,thats a usual thing that companies do,is send folded bumpers so right now car,parts calm is like everything I hate,right now the front bumper fits really,bad the rear bumper this M is broken,the second rear bumper they sent me was,folded in half I dont think Ill ever,borrow from this company again because,they dont have good quality parts and,they dont fit right and my fenders fit,pretty much perfectly except for a,little adjusting,Im not a body shop so Ive never done,fenders Ive never dusted them but I,could probably get them near perfect,fitment and thats from Ricardo and,theyre perfect but then were over here,getting car park home offenders and,theyre just not good they dont fit,they come folded in half for some reason,its so far I dont know if Im being,like overdramatic about it but Im not,happy right now well after doing some my,research it looks like a lot of,companies do send bumpers fold it in,half dont know why dont really like,the idea of it and I dont know why they,didnt send the first bumper me fold in,half and why they sent me this one fold,now but you gotta let it bake out in the,Sun and enforce the suns going down now,so I could you guys tomorrow at some,point so its now been a entire day out,in the Sun its been out here marinating,the bumper has been marinating in the,Sun for which seems well its been all,day because its now like 5:30 and I put,it out this last night now it got some,shape to it still looks a little bit,wonky but Im gonna try to fit it on,hopefully it fits right and hopefully,its not as bad fitting as the other one,was is the other one was very flare II,and I was trying to use a heat gun these,hard time to try to fix it so hopefully,this one fits better now and hopefully,we can give car parts calm a little more,credit because yesterday when I got a,folded bumper,the boy was angry well see how it looks,this time so Im gonna show you guys a,bumper real class and then well try to,put it on its still a little bit wonky,around here like in this general area,but other than that it looks fine so,were gonna try to put it on,I havent adjusted it at all but this is,the same thing Im having with the front,bumper from the same company it was kind,of fighting to get put on holes arent,lining up how theyre supposed to,were flaring out on the sides over here,again Im not very happy with this now,back to the original issues I was having,with the old bumper two holes dont want,to line up like theyre supposed to ever,the bottom ones on the bottom of the,bumper line up perfectly the side clips,theyve fit relatively decently but I,cannot get these rear clips and Ill,show you what I mean theyre just not,lined up Im gonna try to show you how,Im doing this the best I can but on my,tripod on me right now,come again this to work but pretty much,Im doing is if you see the hole seek,the pry bar a little bit back there,bend it makes the hole perfect so you,can squeeze your little jiggly bits,right in there now the bumper is all on,and Im starting to show you guys,installation but its very easy to do,just a couple clips and a couple screws,and Im gonna say fitment on the second,round bumper the one that came folded in,the box the one that Im pretty sure is,a different material than the original,one fits a smidge better than the other,one car parks icon gave me so that being,said am I happy with this one Im more,happy than I was because at first I was,extremely upset and depressed about it,and I really was gonna write a mean mean,letter to them but after installing it,Im gonna do a little short edit thing,for you guys to show you guys the,fitment its not perfect,I wasnt expecting perfect I was,expecting better than the old other,bumper but it is but better than the,other bumper I cant talk right now Im,tired but its a little bit better and,Im happy about that because it doesnt,look as janky as before yes some things,are still bit off yeah we have slight,gap issues that I kind of think I know,wait I can actually fix the gapping,issues but well get to that maybe in,another video but Ill show you guys,what it looks like,[Music],now with that little edit done it,concluded you can see we have some small,issues going on with it and I think the,gapping on the sides if I actually were,to theres Aspergers in there and I,think ever to sand it down a little bit,I got you shove it up in there and then,tighten the screw more to make it so the,gap is less and I think that is what I,might end up doing not right now my hair,is a mess right now well but that would,cover the gap another issue is the,exhaust isnt centered like its I mean,that close being centered and the,exhaust on the original bumper came with,the car was centered and it again with,the aftermarket bumpers for some reasons,not so much if I should adjust it but I,am planning to get an entire new catback,for the car soon as

The BEST and CHEAPEST places to find auto parts ESPECIALLY when rebuilding a salvage car

hey guys and welcome back I am Sam crack,and when youre buying a car for rebuild,the deciding factor and whether its a,good deal or not is whether or not the,parts that you end up buying to rebuild,the car are good deal themselves so,behind me is my 2015 psst when I first,saw it online it looked like this you,can see the whole front end is pretty,much gone there were a lot of big body,parts that needed to be replaced and,really I learned with this car and the,money pajetta the easiest places to find,these parts the cheapest places to buy,them and the difference in quality,between third-party parts in OEM parts,this is the only guide youll need Im,going to give you a list of places you,can buy all your parts from and when,youre all done youll have saved a ton,of money over just walking into say a,dealership or the auto parts store and,buying them all over the counter lets,get started now the newer the car the,more difficult the part is going to be,to get doesnt mean that the part is,actually difficult it just means that,theres less newer cars out there,damaged and that theres not a lot of,used or wrecked cars for them to pull,parts from but lets talk about the,dealership really quick this is a 2015,Fiesta ST and I bought it last year in,2016,these fiestas came out in 2014 so that,left about a year for damage Fiesta ST s,to be on the market this left for a,short period of time to go and find,another salvage VSS T in a junkyard,somewhere and try and buy parts off of,it so I went online and started,researching parts and when I found out,is that I would have to purchase a lot,of them from the dealership since,theres not a lot of third party parts,available for this specific esti model,generic fiestas theres a lot of third,party parts available and the reason for,that is because the Chinese,manufacturers and the third party,manufacturers they look at the most,popular vehicles on the road and then,they make generic parts for that because,those are the cars that obviously get,damaged more so when it comes to the,dealership they have every part,generally at MSRP for a customer like,you or I just walking in but the people,that get discounts are body shops and,businesses and other dealerships so,heres a big tip call the local,dealership it might,it was a Ford dealership for this car,and tell them Im planning on buying a,lot of parts from you and even more in,the future because Im rebuilding a car,and I dont just need one part I need,several is there any way we can work out,a wholesale style discount the first,Ford dealership I called locally offer,me a wholesale discount close to what,other small businesses would receive so,by just making one phone call and,networking with the dealership Ive,ordered from them several other times,they actually order from dealerships all,across the state and so if theres a,dealership that wont give me a discount,they can call and it could be for,another make like my Volkswagen or Audi,theyll call them and get me a wholesale,price on it and then sell it to me at,the Ford dealership its pretty neat to,know and its especially a place to get,large parts online youll see things,like hoods and bumpers but they cost a,lot to ship because theyre large items,and when it comes to body parts besides,them being large OAM body parts are,really the best qualities Ive had other,sorts of generic and third-party body,parts they dont always either fit up,correctly or have the same quality of,the OEM part so when it comes to parts,that are tough to ship and also a little,less common because the car might be,newer definitely try and call your local,dealership and see if you can work out a,wholesale discount with them the second,one is one of my favorites and if you,havent heard of it already youre going,to want to check it out its called car,dash parts calm Ill put a link to it in,the description box below basically this,is an online inventory of all the parts,and junkyards in the entire United,States so you pick your make and your,model and then you pick exactly the part,you need whether its a body part or a,mechanical part and it will search the,entire country their system knows if,this BST uses the same part as a generic,Fiesta say that a junkyard has a generic,Fiesta but it still has the part you,need on it youll know exactly where,that part is and where you need it the,other thing that it does is defines,local junkyards to you and it lists all,the prices of all the junkyards and all,their phone numbers so basically you can,have an idea of what that part will cost,now mind you these are obviously,use parts off of totaled cars if you,need a hood and the Carlos it and the,front end chances are youre not going,to get a hood however what you can do is,once youve taken an inventory of,everything you need for your project,call them up and buy as many parts from,them as you can and then take their,asking price for all those parts which,are again usually listed on this website,and ask the record yard for a discount,theyre more than likely to give you a,cheaper price if you buy more parts from,them all these places are really wheeler,and dealer style they all negotiate on,almost everything so definitely try and,buy as many parts as you can on my Audi,s3 I had a lot of suspension parts that,were broken and the nice thing about an,s3 is it shares a similar platform as,the a3 so everything but the shock,struts and springs are basically the,same suspension wide off of an,all-wheel-drive a3 I found a yard that,had a collision damage outie a3 and I,bought every single part from them I,probably paid about six or seven hundred,dollars for all my suspension components,from one place if I bought them from the,dealership it would have cost likely,four or five times that amount so,definitely check out car dash parts comm,for parts that are local to you and also,parts at junkyards and record yards that,you can likely get for a very good price,the third suggestion requires a little,bit more work and thats how to pick,your part yard a large public company by,the name of lkq owns a lot of these,junkyards that youll find on car -,parts comm but they have other centers,where you can actually go and pick the,part off your car now the best part,about the pick your part yards the parts,are probably the most inexpensive of any,option weve discussed and thats,obviously because you have to go and,remove it versus a junkyard that would,go and remove the parts for you and then,sell them to you these places can just,be a lot of fun to roam around for a few,minutes anyway they usually charge you,an entrance fee which is nominal a,couple dollars and you bring your own,toolbox and start picking now Ill list,the link to the website below for LQK,pick your parts yards basically you can,go on their website select your closest,location and see what cars are in their,inventory now they dont tell you,anything past that so say that you,needed a hood for a fiesta,well if they have a fiesta there theres,still a chance that somebody might have,went and pick that hood before but like,I said youre going to pay a lot less,and obviously youre getting oh em,because theyre off of a smashed car in,their yard so definitely check out LQK,pick your parts yards if you want to,have a little bit of fun dont mind,getting your hands dirty but youre,going to save a lot of money buying,apart from them the next suggestion is,one that you might not have thought,about but you probably know about and,thats an automotive form so for the,psst its kind of an enthusiast car the,Audi s3 definitely an enthusiast car,there are forms dedicated to Audis and,Fords but specifically s-line cars and,Fiesta ST s so what does that do theres,a lot of people to modify these cars so,since I still was trying to keep a tight,budget on this car I went online to the,psst salon as a matter of fact I bought,the majority of OEM parts from a really,nice guy that happened to really mod his,car he swapped out almost anything you,can think

Carparts.com CEO: Expanding inventory and distribution has been key to our success

shares of,carpartz.com coming under a little bit,of pressure here today despite record,third quarter results sales at the,online auto parts retailer jumped 21,year over year as the company turns this,supply chain crunch into an opportunity,joining us now is lev picker ceo of,carpartz.com love welcome back to the,show good to see you again and,congratulations on a strong uh a third,quarter i want to dig into this supply,chain because unlike a lot of other uh,auto parts retailers carparts.com,actually controls its own inventory tell,us how that has helped you navigate,through the supply chain disruptions,yeah its great talking to you again um,so by owning our own supply chain we can,basically go,from the factory direct to the consumer,um and were not relying on anybody you,know we always like to say that,inventories are oxygen and im really,proud of the work that the team has done,to help us build up inventory in the,third quarter,we reported the largest inventory weve,ever seen in our company history,and we have a fantastic team that,basically,controlled our destiny and allowed us to,build up inventory to 132 million in a,very difficult environment,continue to keep growing your inventory,were going to continue uh growing our,inventory uh you know one of our pillars,of our strategy is getting closer and,closer to the consumer and we believe,that we win by uh being able to deliver,parts to customers in one day so you,know were going to continue opening,more and more distribution centers right,now were expanding our texas facility,uh it used to be 210 000 square feet and,were adding another 156 000 square feet,there uh were also opening a,jacksonville facility that should be,operational uh in q2 um and then were,going to continue getting closer and,closer to the consumer uh making sure,that we get the parts to them uh in one,day,so the company your company is not,immune to higher shipping costs i mean,companies across all industries are,having to deal with that right now,how have you been able to manage those,higher shipping costs to get the product,when you need it and have you had to or,do you plan to pass any of that along to,the customer,so our industry is unique in that you,know there is pricing power,um you know additionally inflation right,now you know is hitting all companies uh,pretty much equally uh so some of that,gets passed on to the consumer but our,model is unique in that we go from the,factory directly to the consumer and so,we pass on a lot of those savings,straight to the customer so if you think,about buying parts on carparks.com,versus going to your local store or your,local mechanic you are saving 50 to 70,percent and so those those savings,continue to stay with the customer even,if we pass on some of the cost increases,uh that were experiencing ourselves,the demand for these used car parts is,so strong do you see that continuing,into uh the next year as well,absolutely uh you know we have,the oldest fleet uh weve ever had you,know the average age of the vehicle on,the road is 12 years,uh theres 286 million vehicles on the,road,um and the fleet is aging even more,because you know there is a chip,shortage uh its very difficult to buy a,new car so used car prices are going up,as well and consumers are hanging on to,their vehicles longer which means more,maintenance more repairs uh so it builds,very well for our industry uh going,forward,lev i know that you cant be uber,focused as the ceo on the stock price,but i am curious about how investors are,reacting today because the stock is down,now about seven percent do you think,theyre getting tripped up when they,look at the net loss of 4.7 million,compared to net income of nearly one and,a half million the same time last year,why do you think investors just arent,so pleased today,yeah it could be the net loss you know,again you know as weve said uh on the,call yesterday but the majority of the,net losses driven by non-cash,items and so were really focused on,building a long-term business now this,this industry is huge its 300 billion,dollars,and you know were,a tiny company that still has a ton of,room to run,and were making a lot of investments,into the business to try and disrupt,this industry you think about how auto,parts have been bought for the last 50,or 60 years you know they theyre being,bought the same way today,were one of the few industries left uh,that has single-digit online penetration,and so it requires a lot of investment,to try and and disrupt this so were,going to continue investing for the,future uh were going to continue,getting closer and closer to the,consumer and focusing on solving their,problem um you know and the stock price,will do what it does but eventually,itll catch up,well as you know theres a big climate,summit thats happening in glasgow in,scotland right now and a big push in the,u.s right to move towards cleaner cars,how does that impact your business you,know long term,yeah i think long term you know we we,did launch an evhub,uh its,carparks.com,we have about 700 000 different,applications uh that you can shop for in,there um you know were making,investments today but it is going to,take a long time,for the evs to penetrate the car park,you know again 286 million vehicles on,the road they are getting older so its,going to take some time,for evs to penetrate the car part but um,the majority of the parts that we sell,are agnostic to the drivetrain so if you,think about an electric vehicle it still,has bumper covers and hoods and mirrors,and headlights and tail lights and,control arms and you know almost all the,parts are pretty much the same sure its,missing a lot of the engine components,but,outside of that all the parts that we,sell are are really on nav as well,lev when you talk about wanting to get,closer to the consumer and it will be,very important for you to have,distribution centers across the country,whats the cost of that going to mean to,carpartz.com and how is that playing,into your your outlook uh when you look,at you know margins going forward,yeah so from a cost perspective you know,we can open a distribution center and,finance most of the equipment,and then our inventory turns four times,faster than the industry so usually we,can stock a dc and turn the inventory,before,the bill is due so from a cost,perspective there isnt really that much,cost that gets baked into,the margin and so our margin is really,not affected uh by the cost of operating,in dc its really below the line its,the labor,and all the things that go into that but,thats a variable component of of,operating agency,all right lev peeker ceo of carparts.com,always a pleasure well see you next,time
