REPOSSESSIONS 

In relation to the recovery of secured goods, Access Mercantile is involved with the giving of advice on all aspects of recovery cases, realisation of the Asset, Diligence and Compliance.

Having taken all reasonable steps to collect overdue debts Access Mercantile will contact our client to approve asset repossession.

Access Mercantile Agents maintain the highest standards of professionalism during this process and we do not engage in unacceptable conduct such as intimidation, trespass or harassment.

Our client’s brand and integrity is Access Mercantile’s primary focus.

Once the asset has been repossessed the agent takes several digital photos of the asset and completes a comprehensive condition report. These will be forwarded with our final report to your office or can be viewed on our website.

We can also arrange to have the towing bill paid on your behalf (this will then be added to our overall invoice upon completion) and have the asset delivered to the storage facility of your choice.
