No Down Payment Auto Insurance Plans Accessible to Drivers Online at Auto Company Website

Albany, New York (PRWEB) November 23, 2013

The need to buy insurance is one that many auto owners share and finding companies that will accept no down payment for a policy can be a challenge. The Auto Pros company has updated its existing insurer search tool online with no down payment auto insurance plans at These plans are offered for motor vehicle owners in any state in the U.S.

The exclusive use of this new no down payment system is expected to present the most options to a vehicle owner unable to pay for the full purchase price of a policy. While these rates are offered as budget policies, these do include state minimum protection and other types of coverage plans for drivers.

“Buying insurance with no money down is an option with some companies that are able to underwrite a policy for a person without performing a credit check,” a rep from the Auto Pros USA company said.

The updated research system that the Auto Pros company is now supplying to vehicle owners online includes ways that insurance can be sorted and compared. The rates data that is directly supplied through this system includes a vast number of insurers throughout the United States to extend comparison options for car owners.

“When a person can view multiple companies at the same time, the chances of connecting with a low rate or no down payment rate are higher,” the rep concluded.

The Auto Pros company has developed additional tools on the company website that are helping to eliminate any research by consumers when trying to locate different automotive services online. The services to find used auto parts and insurance are two of the latest programs that are available.

A new beta trial database platform is available for any vehicle owner who is not actively seeking a policy for insurance although could benefit from a warranty plan. This tool found at is now publicly available for research online.


The company has partnered with multiple United States insurance companies to provide quotations for policies and additional information for automotive consumers visiting the company website each day. This service is enacted as a secondary service apart from the used parts for sale that are quoted online using the programmed company search finder. The solutions for automotive consumers online are updated monthly as new developments in place to continue providing easy methods of researching retail parts, insurance or other auto services sold in the U.S.

Madison, Wisconsin (PRWEB) September 13, 2013

The General Motors company is known for its development and marketing for automotive engines in the global marketplace. The Got Engines company sells used motors online and is now announcing a GM engines sale for V6 and V8 units at

These units are part of the inventory that has been acquired to this year to expand the truck and SUV inventory offered. Chevrolet brands like the Silverado are now represented in the V6 and V8 series motors for sale online. These offerings include the GMC variants that are frequently shared across the GM family in North America.

“General Motors is the top automaker in the world and is known just as much for its contributions to the vehicle industry as it is for its engines quality,” a salesman for the Got Engines company said.

The V8 and V6 units that are now reduced for faster online sale have been selected for specific mileage counts. A standard used engine found online can easily exceed a high mileage point. A vehicle owner or mechanic seeking a lower mileage edition can benefit from the preowned condition engines now supplied online.

One incentive to go with the price changes now announced is the warranty policy for buyers. A new coverage arrangement has been created and is included for each sale processed by the Got Engines company. A limited policy with up to 24 months of parts and components coverage is offered alongside the price changes reported online.

“The search tools we’re now offering online give access to the sale pricing, warranty terms and shipment programs in place to help all engine buyers make smarter decisions when researching used engines,” the salesman included.

The reduced price GM engines for sale are part of the General Motors acquisitions undertaken this year. Units for the Chevrolet series in 4-cylinder builds were added in the spring of this year to expand the passenger car inventory that is now promoted to the public.


The company retails used engines from its website online and national distribution center in North America. This company provides Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, Toyota, Honda and other engine types for below retail prices. Developments to the company website have made the resource one of the largest on the secondary market. Engine pricing, shipping information and other incentives that are created as company policies for consumers can be researched online.

Eco-Friendly Parking App Officially Launches in iTunes, Google Play

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Parqt, an app created by New York-based development company, officially launched this week in the iTunes and Google Play store. Parqt is a social, crowd-sourced application that enables users to locate vacant or soon to be vacant spots nearby, all while earning rewards for checking in and out of parking spaces.

We came up with the idea in June of 2012 while circling around Boston for an empty parking spot for almost half an hour this, plus the curiosity to guess the person who is walking back to their car to find a spot, inspired us to create Parqt, said Onur Erikoglu, co-founder of Parqt LLC.

Parqts unique automated system of sharing parking information via Bluetooth eliminates the need of user interaction by recognizing when their mobile devices Bluetooth is paired/unpaired to the cars Bluetooth. This seamless process also allows users to gain points every time they turn their engine on and off, which can be used to purchase gift cards, or to donate to charity.

Parqt could have a great potential to allow users to make an environmental impact with a single touch. With the joint effort of its users we believe Parqt can really help reduce our carbon footprint by decreasing the time people spend circling the block for parking spots, said Caglar Erikoglu co-founder of Parqt LLC.

The most valuable data while parking is to know when a driver is heading to their car and knowing if a spot just became available in the area. Before Parqt, drivers wouldnt know this without driving aimlessly until another car left a spot. This app displays a users parking status for other users, so they will know whos walking to their car, and when a space will be vacant. By linking an account with Facebook, users can create custom profiles and share their parking status with friends, once again helping eliminate the frustration of searching for a space. Users also, of course, can choose what to share in privacy settings.

Parqt is holding a city-wide event in Boston from November 9th to November 13th in which passersby will come across 4 vehicles with Parqts logo traveling during rush hours, and stopping during lunch time to hand out promotional items. During this time, there will also be a month-long contest in which users that have registered, and logged in, will be randomly selected to win The Dream Car Tour.

Parqt is available now in the iTunes and Google Play stores for free.


Onur and Caglar Erikoglu, founders of Parqt LLC, were born and raised in Turkey, and moved to the USA between 2005 and 2007 to study engineering and economics. Their passion for the environment, and problem solving, drew them to come up with the idea for Parqt inspired by an energy reduction company that would pay customers to turn off their electricity during peak times. This concept is similar to Parqt in the means of using what everyone already does — setting up a meter reminder and using that data by rewarding them to share it with everyone — small changes in daily activity make a big impact. Onur and Caglar are strongly passionate about creating a community where each drivers parking information is shared to decrease our carbon-footprint by incentivizing and not requiring any extra work on the drivers behalf.
