eBay Motors announced an exclusive agreement with Hollander, a leading provider of auto recycling and parts yard management solutions in the United States and Canada, to provide access to more than $2.7 billion (retail value) of used parts inventory on eBay Motors.
Hollander's inventory represents nearly 60% of the available used parts market, and more than 3,000 auto recyclers, rebuilders and collectors will be able to list items online and reach nearly 12 million unique monthly visitors on the eBay Motors site, say eBay officials.
"Our goal is to connect buyers and sellers in a global marketplace with the largest selection of great deals," said Rob Chesney, vice president, eBay Motors, Marketplaces. "Working with Hollander essentially doubles the eBay Motors selection, already the largest parts inventory on the web.”
Parts seekers can expect to find many used original-equipment manufacturer (OEM) items, and refurbished items previously only available through catalogs or recycling yards.
The launch is expected to take place by year-end 2009.
