  1. Hi Everyone! Different states of America are lifting travel bans, and I am thinking to restart my car dealership business. Although in this quarantine, I used several online retailer apps to keep my business alive but now, I am thinking to offer my own application. Actually, a few years ago, I have used one application for selling different vehicles to my clients, but it was bad experiences because the database wasn't updating timely. That's why this app became a reason for miscommunication. However, my friends suggested me to use Firebase because invest is about zero, and everything would update within no time. Yes, I am exploring its features from here https://blog.back4app.com/firebase/, but your advice would be beneficial on this stage. Do you think Firebase is the right option to start this venture? What are your thoughts about Firebase databases? Waiting for your suggestions.
  2. Greetings! Facebook shut down Parse in 2017 but one of my team members suggested to use Parse with the self-hosting service. Although I don't have much knowledge about Parse but as it is an open-source platform and offers several features that's why I am considering to use it. I also found this article https://www.back4app.com/parse very helpful to know about the benefits and ways to deploy an app with Parse. Do you think it is safe for sensitive data apps to use the Parse framework with third party services like Back4App or Firebase? Similarly, would it work 100% to update databases in real-time? It would also great if you share the cons of using real-time databases for auto applications. Share your opinions or apps which are using any BaaS or Parse service.
  3. Hi All! I don't have any experience regarding stock markets and investments, but in 2021, I am planning to invest in Tesla stocks. When in the worst year like 2020, Tesla stocks can enhance around 700% then how much this investment could be profitable in standard years. Withal, I wouldn't deny that stock investment is a complicated thing where several other factors also matter. Although I considered this source https://www.amakella.com/stock-market-basics-learn-how-to-invest-in-stocks/ to understand the basics of stock investment and this article https://money.usnews.com/investing/stock-market-news/articles/tesla-inc-tsla-stock to know the pros and cons of Tesla stock investment. I have many questions in mind. Likewise, in 2010, the price was around $17 per share, and now, it is $830 per share. How much would it surge? Or is it the right decision to pick this too expensive investment? As I am thinking to invest for a long-term period, that's why I am also little afraid of what will happen if new electric vehicle manufacturing companies join the market? In short, I want an expert but honest opinion regarding Tesla stock investment. Waiting for your suggestions.
  4. It sounds very nice that your family cares a lot about your brother. You can hire any car mover like AmeriFreight or UShip to order vehicles from other city or the state. However, one random question is coming in my mind, and I would like to ask your brother's driving license. Has he passed the driving test? If yes, then it is a great gift, but if he didn't even pass the driving test, instead of gifting him a car, you should gift him this https://www.drivinglessonvouchers.com/product/driving-lesson-gift-vouchers/ driving lesson voucher. You can purchase it according to your budget but if you go with the £1,000 option then probably it can cover the cost of 45 hours driving lessons' duration. I purchased this voucher for my younger sister-in-law on her birthday and found it very helpful. She completed her driving lesson hours with its help, and now, she is going to apply for the driving test in Belfast next month. Moreover, your parents should also analyze the driving skills of your brother before handover the vehicle. I noticed such pre-mature guys don't drive with proper care. Please also convey my best wishes to your brother.
  5. Hi All! I am totally free and thinking to invest my time in an exciting venture in these New Year and Christmas holidays. Yes, I am thinking of starting my car site with details of different vehicle brands, models, manufacturing year and their prices. Right now, I am only thinking to start from cars that's why I only want to include car details there. However, I need to install a comprehensive car dataset there, and I was about to fetch it from Kaggle, but I am having a few file issues. That's why I am thinking to use this cars dataset. No doubt, it is an excellent dataset which includes all US vehicles, their model details and brands but unluckily, this source doesn't present car data of the 70s and 80s. In my opinion, my readers would also be interested in vintage vehicles, and I would be a better option to list the 70s and 80s cars also there. I would be grateful if you share suggest cars dataset with me. You can share your sources below, and I would check them manually. Indeed, I would prefer the Japanese, US, and UK cars datasets, including all cars information before the 90s. Please come with supportive sources. I am waiting for your suggestions.
  6. Thanks for sharing detailed thread to engage and help your dealership related customers but I would like to add a few more suggestions here. As this pandemic forced over the significance of online operations, that's why I would recommend all auto dealers to keep their customers' updated via their social media handles or with the help of their official websites. Secondly, I would also suggest auto dealers to improve rankings and traffic of their official website from services like this https://www.simpletraffic.co/ because it looks very odd when client search for the official site of any auto dealer and proceed with a fake site because their official site is not well-ranked. Such services wouldn't only improve the ranking of dealership websites' but would also help you to generate industry-oriented leads for you to increase sales. In my opinion, in upcoming days, official website or social media platforms would be the right source to keep your customers engage. That's why you should emphasize on the development and marketing. In this regard, you can also run ad campaigns and making business banner ads with tools like Canva or BannerBoo https://bannerboo.com/advertising-templates/display-ads/business/, you can display them on related platforms. These platforms could be a website, social media or online applications that run ad campaigns. By the way, the use of email marketing or e-newsletter also sounds good, but I noticed companies usually send emails to their existing customers and don't go after the new customers. That's why I would suggest you to use these business email lists https://www.usabledatabases.com/database/us-business-yellow-pages-of-companies/ to generate more leads especially if you are dealing in B2B ventures.
  7. For sure automobile enterprises should invest for research and development projects for the sake of their reputation and facilitate their customers. After the gas emission scandal, Volkswagen should definitely give extra funds to for such projects, but in my opinion, there is also another way to collect investments for this thing. I am referring here socially and environmentally responsible investments. Companies should throw ESG shares in the stock market and encourage the investors to get them. Automobile companies can give several arguments about why investors should invest in ESG stocks, and these investments are also very safe and reputable. Definitely, with the help of ESG investments, auto companies can improve the environment with eco-friendly fuel options and overcome the use of natural resources etc. With the help of these investments, auto companies can also run their R&D projects after the approval of the investors. By the way, it is also excellent news for vehicle riders and owners that companies are trying their best to improve their driving experience. I also found this source which claims that R&D investment of automobile companies reached near 103.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2019, and hopefully, we would see the results of these investments soon.
  8. Greetings! Last week, I purchased a vehicle from a Japanese site after making complete verifications. Though I have paid them and they have sent me the payment receipt, but now, we are having shipment issues. Actually, they want to courier me original bill of lading via EMS, but I am worried what if I didn't get this original bill at a time or in case of damage or loss. That's why after reading this article https://www.jluggage.com/blog/shipping/what-is-surrendered-bill-of-lading/ I am thinking to ask them for a surrendered bill of payment. As I have already paid them so after making payment to the carrier, I can get the ownership of vehicle which would arrive at the port in a few days. Do you think the use of the surrendered bill of lading is safer than the use of the original bill? According to my friends, I am only overthinking, and it is always better to proceed with the original bill of lading to avoid customs issues. Is it true? Can custom officers make it delay if I import vehicle via surrender bill of lading? I am very much confused, and I hope you guys would suggest me the right options. Your experiences & opinions are also welcome.
  9. Greetings! Due to lockdown in many countries of Europe, my company is also working from home, and I am not using my vehicle at all. Actually, we have two vehicles at home, and home shopping and outing could be done with one car, and I am thinking to use my second vehicle for courier business. Yeah! Though it is lockdown and business are not doing enough, but I noticed that home deliveries and online shopping give a boost to the courier business. In the beginning, we are doing a venture with an already registered courier company of a friend and later would decide either it could be a separate business or not. However, I am confused about the courier insurance. Indeed, I found several types of courier insurance and quotes here https://comparecourierinsurance.co.uk/ but do you think I should I also include driver's cover in it? Or courier company should pay for it? Also, I am confused about GIT cover. Probably, most of the time, the vehicle would be used for dresses and other deliveries instead of food, so GIT doesn't sound as important in this situation. What are your views on this matter? Please come with your thorough ideas and suggestions. I am waiting for your responses.
  10. Greetings! No doubt, the automotive sector is getting the benefit of robotic process automation from years in terms of real-time processing, accuracy, communication and inventory management etc. But do you think the use of RPA for dealerships would give the same positive results? Though dealerships are already using the RPA in the form of management software, CRM and many other communication tools but here I am focusing the use of RPA from here for better communication and convincing poor to get more clients. Do you think the use of robotic process automation in a unique manner can help dealerships to attain and retain more clients? Do you think with better client relationships in terms of 24/7 hours communication could lead to an increment in sales? Or we need to emphasize other aspects of the RPA to achieve this milestone? On the other contrary, I am more convinced that the use of RPA could be more useful to impress clients in post-sales operations, but I am still confused how to get more sales with RPA features in the dealership industry. Please share your thoughts in this regard. I am waiting for your opinions. Unique ideas are also welcomed.
  11. Greetings! I am building a car rental portal in PHP and Android nowadays. The main agenda of this online portal is to connect different car rentals and hirers in Germany. Though this portal doesn't offer any direct rental service but you can consider it as a third party between the person who is looking for a vehicle on rent and the renter agency or even individual. Almost design and payment options etc. have designed, but I have stuck among different postal codes APIs. According to my client, it should be Google Maps, but honestly, I never used Google Maps ever to fetch postal codes. However, I have used GeoNames, and I am thinking to use this German zip codes list to fetch dataset into PHP and Android etc. Withal, according to my client, I should also consider some other sources like Wikipedia and GitHub etc. Even Google Maps could be an option. I am here to know either any of you used Google Maps to bring German postal codes for any of your auto, rent etc. website or application? Is there any official site of Germany that offers postal codes dataset into PHP? Please come with serious suggestions. I am waiting for your responses.
  12. There are several sites that offer a discount on auto parts. If it is possible for you, then it is better to import auto parts from Japan because Japanese auto stores give reasonable discounts. However, if you don't want to engage in the shipment of auto parts and the import process, then you should see coupon codes and discount deals of automotive stores from here https://couponclans.com/coupons/automotive/. Yes, Couponclans could be a great place to get a discount on auto parts, and it is also a free coupon site. On the other hand, you can also see Advanced Auto Parts and consider their deals and coupons to get discounts on auto parts and repair services. I am also attaching their current offers here https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/o/advance-auto-parts-coupons-and-deals. Hopefully, it would help you. Otherwise, you can also follow top auto parts stores to get the benefit of seasonal discount offers.
  13. I don't think Amazon is the ideal place to get aftermarket auto parts. First of all, you should try to find aftermarket parts from your nearby dealerships and workshops, but if they are not available there, then you can try to find them on local social media groups. However, if you want some discount and want to pick an online option, then you should definitely visit Advanced Auto Parts. Yes, they are super quick in delivery, and even you can pick these ordered parts from their nearby shop with 25% to 40% coupon discount as well. Similarly, you want right quality aftermarket auto parts with fair deals and every information about the auto part then you should visit Hy2Japan. Yes, they have ample stock of aftermarket engines and auto parts, and you can also see their stock here https://www.hy2japan.com/auto-parts-stock. Withal, you need to customize your search to get your desired parts. Its interface is straightforward, and you can pick car manufacturer of your desire and can get required auto part within a few clicks. Hopefully, you would go with a good deal. Best of Luck!
  14. Honestly, I don't think that a 16 years old guy invest a lot on his first vehicle. Though you can go with exciting options in future but right now, you should prefer the used car. Indeed, you can get good quality Nissan 240SX in your budget if you go with pre-owned option. I found Nissan in right conditions here https://www.kijiji.ca/b-cars-trucks/canada/nissan-240sx/c174l0a54a1000054, and I think these are also in your budget. I would suggest you to go under $5000 or $6000 range because you would also have to pay for $200 to $350 for shorter distances according to this source https://www.topmove.ca/car-transportation. Yes, you can also compare the costs of transportation according to your credentials as well. Similarly, you would also need to some budget for insurance, maintenance and even customizer if you want. That's why instead of spending all of your money on new vehicle's purchase, you shouldn't ignore the other factors. Hopefully, you would pick the right vehicle. By the way, don't forget to get a driving license. Though the minimum age to get a driving license is 16 in most provinces of Canada but don't drive without having license and clearance.
  15. Hello! Though there are still active cases in the United States, Canada, the UK and other European countries but our group of friends decided to go for a long drive this weekend. We are a group of four friends, and I am here to now which preventative measures should we take to avoid this infection. Yes, we would go some sanitizers, check our temperatures in advance and take care of social distancing. However, I am a little confused about the masks. According to my friends, we should try some trendy cotton masks but do you think cotton masks are safe enough? Secondly, we are considering to purchase this copper-ion infused mask because it is not reusable but also kills the bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Yes, they are three-layer ones. Do you think they are safe enough for car riders? Similarly, I also need your suggestions about air purifiers. Should we also carry any portable purifier with us? All in all, I need your advice to have a safe journey. Please come with serious and feasible suggestions.
