Bob joins Western Appraisals Group after spending 31 years in the education industry, most of them in administration. Although not directly involved in the autobody industry, Bob did spend part of his summer one year working in an autobody setting learning a great deal about the industry, and enjoying the experience immensely.
Bob also got interested in the importation of vehicles from the United States about six years ago and quickly learned the rules and regulations of the import/export business. Bob assisted many friends and family members with the purchase and processing of many vehicles over that time.
This experience in brokering has allowed Bob the opprotunity to research great deals on vehicles for his customers, make great contacts south of the border, and take away the hassle and fears of importing a vehicle from the United States.
Bob’s expertise complements the skill sets of the other WAG members in bringing his customers top quality vehicles while saving them $1000′s in a hassle free experience.
Bob and his team are dedicated in finding the customer the best deal possible by purchasing through the dealer auctions in Canada or going south of the border to locate that perfect vehicle.
