It is not me doing all work directly with getting it updated but currently database gets around 2k records per day from around 40 different salvage companies.OneTwenty wrote:Well done on the website Arnie, looks really useful. I notice my old Focus ST is listed as a salvage from Jul 2015 which is a shame!! (PF07XOO)
I'm interested from a technical viewpoint, does it link into a live salvage database or do you just update your own database everyday with salvage records and grow it that way? I have a customer that does a similar thing with classic auctions.
I'm a web designer/developer and have spent over 20 years writing my own backend systems like yours so if you need any tech help ever just DM me.
I only have exclusive use of all data and built HPI backend on top of it.
But tbh it is not hard to replicate it all for different purposes, like having ebay ads history.
Problem is it requires a lot of ANPR in many cases and really it has to make financial sense to record all that data.
