  • Ford, GMAC, etc..

    Could someone please tell me who to contact, and requirements for doing repos for the large dealerships, like Ford, GMAC, etc... We work in S.C. and do repos anywhere. I have called other repo companies for input, and southern hospitality does not apply in this business. I hope I don't offend anyone by the last statement, it has been my experience. We just opened our doors 2 months ago. We are barely getting work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    pick up the phone and call men, its pretty easy use google find gmac website and CALL. It will get you far, but you cannot expect people to do everything for you, how do you plan in growing your company when you cannot simply pick up a phone and call ?

        Asset recovery was it really necessary to be so rude. This is a site to give and get knowledge. Not smart *** comments

          1112 Thats not being rude it's being blunt. If you cant do any investigating on your own, how do you expect to find any cars to repo.

          There are too many people that go out on their own and are not ready for it. You need to gain the requisite knowledge and experience in all facets of the repo biz before you can go out on your own.

            alley (GMAC) isnt hiring any new repo companies ford isnt hiring any new repo companies in NC,SC Been there done that almost all major companies arent hiring any new companies I am on the list with all of them and I did get lucky to get on wellsfargo but it is what it is. The hospitality here in the NC,SC area does suck in this industry I am happy doing my repos and will not do any more title loan companies and SC has plenty of them. So it is a crap shoot for where you are. Now there are some companies looking for repo agents in myrtle beach area but you know like I said it is what it is.

                  Thanks Ally, I have done my calling, wanted to know if there was an easier way to contact them. I don't expect anyone to do the work for me. Let me ask you Ally, do you still go door to door to businesses, do you do follow ups and send out thank you cards to businesses? I do! I don't sit on my *** and let people do the work for me. I thought this blog was for getting insight, and getting info, not insults. I do appreciate honesty. My philosophy is "If you don't want the truth, don't ask"! But don't assume I sit and let people do the work for me.

                    Awful ambitious of you to go after Ally or FMC. They have requirements. And, being in business for a certain amount of time is one of them. I also think they might want to see a copy of your financials. Which, you won't have if you've only been in business for a few months.

                    You want to stay in business.....stay away from FMC. If you have to ask why then your not ready. I've never done GMAC work but have heard the pay is going south.

                    Polish up your business package and solicit credit unions.

                      Thank You

                      Thank you asset for the advice. I actually have been going to credit unions. We are actually a member of one. Since we are new, we have been going to banks, FCU's, buy here pay here, title loans, you name it. I literally go door to door. I like the companies to know us personally not just through phone calls. I have a professional biz packets that I had out. Very professional. We are getting business, but most are hard to find because they are ghosts. But, the Lord will help like he has so far.

                        Stay away from Title Loans as well. Waste of time. I don't know what part of country you're in.....But, I'd target small to medium sized credit unions. Let's say those that have around 40,000 members or smaller. These are the easiest to get into. The collection manager is accessible and willing to meet with you. Anything larger and the collection manager will protected by the gate keeper. I'd specifically target credit unions who's members consisted of City Employees, Teachers....Ya know, those with small paychecks. Think about it.

                        And, for God's Sake. Tell them upfront that you charge a close. If they say they don't pay one.....Say thanks but no thanks.

                        If you have any questions.....by all means. Keep them coming.

                        I have no problem helping.

We are relentless, and just bug the crap out of them till they give us the car. lol. hey it works for us as newbies, but, we are gonna try a few lil games with the advice from this blog.
