Does Catalyst Private Investigations locate vehicles that are up for repossession?

-Yes, Catalyst Private Investigations has many tools and database programs for locating vehicles that are up for repossession.  We first start off by locating the individual who is the owner of the vehicle and what address the vehicle is registered to.  Once we gather this information, we would check the address that the person owns and the address that the vehicle is registered at to try and locate the vehicle.  If this step is unsuccessful, we would then follow the owner of the vehicle in a discreet manner for a day and see if he brings our investigators to the vehicle.
