They had their shot to make unlimited bank in the Great Recession, now they can kiss my ass. Those pawnshop motherf*ckers too – tough luck.
From USA Today:
With the economy on the upsurge, it’s a tough time to be a repo man.
More car buyers are keeping up with their auto payments or coming up with the cash if the repo man — or woman — shows up in their driveway. As a result, fewer vehicles are being hooked up for a tow to the impound yard.
An estimated 1.3 million vehicles were repossessed last year, the lowest tally in 12 years, says Manheim Consulting. That’s down 31.8% from the recessionary peak year of 2009.
In the fourth quarter of 2012, repossessions were down 27.6% compared with the same period the year before, says Experian Automotive.
“I’ve been in the business for 20 years, and it’s never been like this,” says Les McCook, executive director of the American Recovery Association, a trade group for auto repo industry. “We’re at the low point.”
Good, deal with it. Or find some less soul-crushing work to do.
