What can you expect from our
service? The simple answer is anything from a negative finding (no
luck) at one end of the spectrum to a list of former owners and
contacts back to the first owner. Some searches are very easy, and some may
take many hours of research over many months. You can be
assured that we will not bill or attempt to charge you for work
that is not authorized by you. This is a process that we can
discuss. It is a process under your control.
We will keep you updated with a
stream of emails as we conduct the search and make progress.
The average search takes from 4 to
6 weeks to complete. In our mobile society and with the increased
use of cell phones it has become increasingly difficult to locate
and talk to people from the past. Our search protocol is extremely
successful when it comes to locating former owners.
A successful search requires the use of
a large number of genealogical and public records as well as a
solid knowledge of Corvettes, and many contacts in the Corvette
world. There is no magic performed here. It simply takes some
digging and the knowledge of where to look and how to interact
with people. Most former owners are pleasant to speak with but it
is not always easy or comfortable speaking with some people.
Sometimes the ability to “read between the lines” is helpful.
