So I met with my repoman "trainer" for a crash course on how to repossess cars. Not only did he manage the company, he repossessed cars, was a skip tracer, and even delivered cars to the auction. What he taught me was some old-school repoman training - no self loader, no GPS, no laptop - just you and the debtor's car and a tool bag full of goodies. In those days, cars were not equipped with transponders or airbags, and usually they did not have an alarm to alert the debtor that you were repossessing his car. He patiently took the time to show me how to use a steering wheel puller, pound a socket onto an ignition and force it into the start position, and how to use those crazy old Ford passkeys. He had me go through the process several times to be sure I knew what I was doing, and then it was time to get my repo on! I have to say that I would not have been a success in this business without his instruction, advice and friendship. If you want to make it in this business, find yourself a man like this and learn as much as you can.
