I was approached very discreetly today by one of my customers & asked if I knew anything about guns. It seems that the person in question has just lost her husband and has several guns that she doesn’t want her kids to have and she wants them out of her house. She just doesn’t want to be taken advantage of with the selling. This is all understandable, at least to me. My customer is a Doctor & my business is very much done on a trust basis. He didn’t want anything to do with it as he was asked first, but felt that I was trustworthy enough to ask.
At this point, I don’t have a clue as to what I am going to find or how large the collection is. I do know that the neighborhood that this is in is quite affluent so, I am a bit excited to see what this is all about. It could be that I will be in over my head, but have a very good and honest friend that would be excited to help. I would not do this without discussion with the party involved.
I may be posting this too soon but I would like some opinions and options for sales to give in the preliminary talks. Being in customer service for almost all of my adult life, I have no problem thinking that I can make her comfortable with my help.
