“Repossession” is a word that most people don’t like, but for Lorri Langmeier and Dwight Chance, it is music to their ears. They are the owners of Southern Solutions Investigative Services, Inc (SSIS), a start-up vehicle repossession business located in Rincon, GA. It offers a full range of repossession and investigative services including involuntary and voluntary repossessions, skip-tracing, storage and transportation of seized items to auctions.

SSIS has the capability to reclaim a variety of vehicles such as cars, trucks, SUVs, rigs, motor homes and yachts for its clients, credit unions, banks and other financials institutions.

Ms. Langmeier has over 15 years of experience in the repossession industry and over three years as an investigator. As an employee, she utilized her repossession skills, but not her investigation expertise. She desired to combine both abilities which led her to open SSIS with her partner, Dwight Chance. Dwight is a graduate of Georgia Southern University with a degree in Business Administration. As both partners have basic knowledge of the other’s expertise, the weaknesses of one are overcome by the strengths of the other.

SSIS has several competitors, but has established a competitive edge that sets them apart from their competition. They have purchased A+ insurance that permits them to bid on contracts for larger more established, financial clients. Ms. Langmeier and Mr. Chance also have “state of the art” equipment which allows them to provide efficient service for their clients. They have established themselves in providing a 24 hour turn around policy. From the time a call is made, they guarantee possession of the vehicle within 24 hours as long as they are given its location. A final advantage is that they continue to receive training to improve on their services in order to stay ahead of the competition.

Office hours of operation are Monday – Friday 8:00am to 6:00pm, but the owners are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Lorri and Dwight approached SBAC requesting funds to purchase equipment and for working capital using the SBA MicroLoan program. With these proceeds, they have secured 10 clients and have several in the pipeline waiting for final decisions.
