PartsTrader is committed to the CIECA BMS standard for all integration, and was designed to implement these standards fully. We will not transmit EMS files over the internet in any form. Additionally, PartsTrader does not provide and will not provide repairer buy prices to insurance companies. The only exception is recycled parts where this is required on the estimate so that repairers can get paid. PartsTrader subscribes to the ARA position indicating that parts included in the estimate are to be priced assuming that parts are in an undamaged condition and the repair of any damage will be negotiated between the buyer and seller.
