Project Management & Parts Sourcing

 

Anybody who thinks they can do everything is probably wrong and/or probably not very good. We all need help along the way in our automotive endeavors, professional and amateur alike, especially if we wish to get a lot done in a short amount of time; vendors are our partners in our projects.

There's a lot to do when considering interacting with vendors. Often the first problem is to know what kinds of vendors are available. Once selected, they need to be negotiated with and provided the things they need in the way they need them. Someone has to deal with packing, shipping, receiving, paying, dealing with any problems, and a host of related issues. Even when the vendors are great and everything goes perfectly, it can still be a lot of work. Our role for you in this capacity is to take care of all of this for you.

The job here is to oversee other vendors to ensure a positive outcome.

Here are just a few of the types of vendors that may be involved in a project:

If you want parts made for you, the list grow further still - vinyl experts, silk-screening, casting manufacturers, metal stamping die makers - and the list could go on and on, depending on what you want to do.

You may also want someone to oversee the project from the point of view of knowing what to, how to do it, and in what order. These skills aren't possessed by everybody, but we've been doing this type of thing long enough to have developed them. Not every problem can be anticipated, but we've been through enough to know the ropes pretty well.
