And what it is you bring to the table for your clients. Well. Without giving up my age I wanna say that I've been doing. Doing this business for over thirty years. And I've. Started out as a mechanic. It was automobile took issue with the school for that and then went on to college afterwards. Idea I'm. Have bought vehicles for many new and used -- dealers that -- inventory did a lot of appliance that I know have purchased in the past. But now I wanted to try to give it to them directly so they don't have to go to dealership. Vacancy us and will try to find out all the different ways it to make it benefit them. Into tried to get exactly what did within needs require. Now Joseph I know you you formally of the Westin Boston and then I grew up with a fascination. Well I don't know -- don't love them yet where it explains a Leo wanted to win and I'll start that was the first car the first -- model year. Well I thought you -- -- it was with the first cut after the first. You know and when I was growing up in the fifties. Automobiles one every. Guys my age we took care of him. They were like trying to us and as time went on. At one point time. Until two years ago I actually -- seven vehicles registered its. In little greedy but I. And and I met bill about 1618. Years ago. And I've -- quite few cuts from bill -- and we like guys -- from bill and them when I retire it. Bill gave me. We got together and he -- you know your passion for automobiles like -- And I think together we can we can make good -- Well let's staff from there when you guys got together and you said the card guys the business. Bullets -- with you what. What is the difference between me going around trying to find the car that I need for my family for myself for my collection for whatever purpose. And utilizing someone like that our guys. Okay well basically what happens is you know you gonna go to a new or used car dealer. And they're gonna have a bias to the vehicles that they actually have on the lot so what happens is a lot of times. They're really. Probably don't leaving care about what you really wanna get yourself in terms of you know is it is it something they -- you're looking to. Save on and fuel economy for instance or. Are you looking for a status symbol only are you looking for something it's more like the sports -- something that drives that the European Cup. Or do you prefer to have an Asian cut it probably has a lot less maintenance like Honda Toyota Nissan and so forth and so. So what happens is when you get when you get together with us what we gonna do is we're gonna sit down and try to find out. Step by step we're gonna win -- get all your needs written down so that we do we know exactly what you're looking for. Whether it be an issue B a CD and a who. Convertible. What would have -- types of vehicles a year interested in than what we're gonna do is we're gonna take those and then we're gonna have. We're gonna all put down all the different manufacturers of those types of vehicles so that we can see which ones that -- into Reston. Now you may be a person who's very knowledgeable a boat. Vehicles and exactly what you want in you -- to say listen specifically I want this type of car. And I need a certain color exterior certain color interior. And wanted to have miles less than X whenever that might be and we're gonna hone in on that. And I'm I'm sure that's all different though for different. Ages demographics some with the -- -- family some traveling salesman some works from home. As different needs when they'll for an and you can facilitate narrow all that down to the perfect model perfect they they'll. Absolutely so so my clients they they take fifteen minutes and they can tell me everything that they want other clients. I spend always with because basically. Maybe they haven't ever driven one of these types of vehicles that they might be interested in that they looked good. Are on paper oh they look good on TV or they've seen when right right down the -- so that what I do is. I'll actually set up an appointment with them where we can actually go drive some of these cars so that we did. They can they can touch it feel it drive it and make it more intelligent decision of what they wanna -- it because. Let's face it if you haven't driven the guy you don't really know if you really like it maybe you don't fit the seat well. It's possible. Now judge oh then you can jump in on the congress they elevate and explain to me. What you see from your clients and they come to. As far as how you help them come along in their their purchasing. Well what I like to do is when when we finally find out what vehicle that is -- that they would well when we when we trying to own it. We actually investigate the vehicle and people. We will have you investigated and automobiles weakened we can literally find out. We. We're came into the country -- it was a far. What dealership but it and who they sold it to him while they had that if they had knee problems. That since Reagan and bill -- they were talking but this is this sort of like a car -- type of thing where. You can tell me the history of the -- well we also we use contracts if we do proof for maintenance purposes but do sometimes. Have banks -- only can -- -- With reports have been reported for example by dividing up my currently in the garage today and then I go home and saying you know myself no one's ever gonna know that that happened on -- facts that it report. -- and it also happens through. If you have a three Elise was an automobile and you -- here include vehicle use it in the major accident. The deal with takes it back VP is it then gives it back at the end the country that we should return it. They wanna sell it. If they put it on the alive and custom considered this to them. As. He's that looks good sounds good his neck Arab and an accident all the salesman in reality doesn't. Yet but he'll go an assailant or cutbacks that'll tell us. Now that but it won't always telling if that the book was in the FedEx that would put it to. But fortunately. After it. It is well and -- he wanted to jump in on this as well. I do because basically what's what's -- is. -- about probably sixty to 70% of the car faxes that I see when I go to the big sale. Are actually inaccurate and and the reason why is a lot of these rental car companies at least companies to self insured. So basically what they do is they fix the cars themselves and then they don't reported -- was police. Report made on the on the accident and so therefore a lot of these guys have bad accidents but they actually have a clean car fax. No lol well what's the purpose of doing that is it so they can solitary easily afterwards that right what what's cars with a ball money. Because if if in fact that card goes to -- dealer auction which they've mostly due. Then -- how would bring a lot less money. If it had a port -- facts so -- -- bill looking to. To maximize their profit. And maximizing their profit when they take it back -- is saying okay. We wanna get as much as we possibly can to this vehicles so if we don't have the report something we're not gonna report. And nobody has made it mandatory. For. Everyone in the world to reap what the accidents soul because of that there's a lot of cars out there that actually looked good. Have been repaired. And probably a lot of -- might but cars but let's face it we if you if you think. That you buy a car that does has not been an accident and would would you rather have that are. Will they let me jump in for a second what is. What is the the when you come into that to the equation. How do you find -- a -- you find problems with the -- that might not have been reported is that something that you'd can do. Yeah is he basically we are telling me is when I go to find my car and I walked into. -- dealership and I. I do with the commercial says -- they show me that says Oprah for our wonderful. You're telling me there might not be something reported and -- car might might be. A complete rack and adamant no it but you guys have the expertise to -- prove. Things that are on the car facts are actually on the car absolutely what we have many different ways to do it first the -- -- we do we use we do use the -- effects so -- we look at that. But then almost as just a frame of reference right to -- -- let's see what they're telling us but and then go find out what they're not absolutely and and we we have it we have an account so -- we actually we affects every guy just in case we also use another. A competitive that they have which is auto check. And sometimes there'll be. Things that are reported to auto chip which are not reported to effects or vice Versa but even better than that what I uses I use a paint media. And based -- paint -- you mean. Painting offense pain then coaches think exactly so what basically what this paint meter does. It allows me to walk around in each panel of the car. I checked the specification for the pain. In I'll be able to tall. If that car has ever had any paint work on it on any given piano so when twenty seconds I can actually walk around that capital. And I'll be able to tell you which panels have been painted and then I can -- further afterwards. To determine whether or not those so -- a bit off the karma so Joseph what they'll have a -- tell and he's like CSI now it. But the -- -- -- throughout the black light he can see the fingerprints and where all the stuff -- this is some high tech stuff fair. -- -- call until Friday. He might not match at a furious if somebody is out there remember dragnet pick up until Friday because we have a detective work it's like -- tech support and this and this is where my enjoyment comes it. The find out this. We had this guy came it and as it -- via. What condition as this parents now the other thing is we go to the largest auction in the world. Right this is the definitely the largest box and in the United States. It is in the world so they're up twelve to 151000 automobiles now under one time that the that are gonna go in the auction block. And a lot of these vehicles. Actually. Inspected. By technicians. The manufacturing company. So people in their minds as they want they know that the has been an accident. Well these inspectors go India and they can tell they can tell by numbers that are on the vehicle. If the numbers we're all the same -- is different you can help has been replaced. And you'd get this information when you're at the action you won't get this information in Europe who is when -- at the deal which. And this is how we can tell we can we can find that out and bill goes through that stuff down the and he looks -- -- but he spends a lot of time looking into it. And we can feel real good about what was going a product what was on the product the vehicle to a -- See you guys basically act. The car guys act as my agent they they they allow me to come into the office and give your call -- however we can get in touch with the united about the numbers shortly. And I go to USA and the family of four. I don't drive alive but I need nice reliable car what can you do for me and then I go back to my -- life and then you go on you do the footwork. And you come back and say here's a list of six -- seven on mobiles. And then we move from there is that right does and how the kind of the whole thing works absolutely it works like that but this is actually a lot more to it because because of -- mechanical background. We get a really. Leading edge and a lot of different things it. Every current manufacturer has its little fault when the engineer a car in the -- -- little. Little issues it. It go on with each and every of the Joseph Friday character comes in right right you come in with CSI technology. Exactly exactly in this a lot of little telltale signs of house somebody actually took care this car. Before -- like for instance. The fluids that are in the kind note you know you could have just changed the oil but I'm going to be able to tell you. Whether that car. Actually had oil changes. And a frequent basis because. -- are able teller yes I would I use. I use a lot of little different schools that I get into when they. When you actually go into the into the area where you would normally put your oil in the car. You know I get in there with a little bit of I've -- -- along. Telescopic mirror. That I actually used to kind of take a look at who with the -- looks like in there it does look like it's slow edgy dark -- or is it -- -- cleaned and you can tell. A lot of things by just doing a few little inspections that a lot of people don't know. Oh. Don't know that you know these ways actually exist and that you can you can actually check out a car -- -- By doing certain things and I just happen to know all those things because I've been doing this for so long. We'll take a quick break when we come back on the other side Joseph one NASA launches I think about the answer to this now he was while bill. What is the difference between leasing an automobile.
