"On a recent trip to an auto show we ran across a group of older gentlemen who really became interested in what we do for a living. The appraisal industry and appraisers in general are really an unseen area of the industry...always needed, but mostly secluded. The process of going over these vehicles with a fine-tooth-comb was not lost on these men as they had seen the great depresion years first-hand. One man told how his father had purchased a truck for his business only to find that the seller had added things to the oil and other fluids to hide sounds of damage. Several days after the purchase, the truck broke down, and without the truck the business was lost.
We had a great time with this group of men and actually landed a fleet contract from them as we had no clue they were rather well-off business men just enjoying the show. The ride in the Dodge Viper later that evening was especially nice. Over cigars and great drinks we talked about the experiences over the years and were complimented on taking our time with what appeared to be just a group of 'old guys' asking questions. They really rewarded our normal way of handling the day to day: treating everyone like they are our number one customer."
