The conference will be hosted June 19 -21, 2018 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky (Airport code: SDF, when making flight arrangements). Known for the Kentucky Derby, BlueGrass Music, Mint Julips and Bourbon Distilleries, the beautiful city of Louisville will play host to repossessors from far and wide who come together for this incredible annual event. The Galt House is Louisville’s Waterfront Hotel on the Ohio River; walking distance from the Louisville Slugger Museum & Bat Factory, The Muhammad Ali Center, Belevdere Park and much more. We have negotiated a discounted room rate of $169 for spacious executive suites and $139 for deluxe rooms.
New York, NY – 19 February 2018 – A federal agent allegedly pulled a gun on a man whose car was being repossessed by the agent’s cousin in The Bronx, then had the victim arrested on bogus charges, a high-ranking police source said Sunday.
Little Rock, AR – 16 February 2018 – Cody Hiland, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, and Jeffrey Reed, Resident Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), announce that late Thursday multi-convicted felon Marvin Meux, 45, of West Memphis, was sentenced to 210 months in federal prison for his illegal possession of a firearm after his armed encounter with two Repo Men in 2015.
Repossession company owners hear this phrase every time they court a new client, “how many free days of storage do you offer?” or some variation. For most of us this question is answered begrudgingly and usually begins the standard back and forth of negotiation. Often this leads to at the very least relinquishing any fees for storage for a certain amount of days to this new client, and as a result the owner gave away his highest profit item in the hopes of earning more work.
Now some of you reading this are rolling your eyes and saying to yourself “here comes another lecture about giving our services away”. No, I won’t do that because I am just as guilty as you are and have the same conversation with every new client and current client for that matter every time we discuss fees.
