Repo Man Channel 4 Reviews

About the TV Show

We were approached by Channel 4 to create the Repo Man TV show following our company round through a series of jobs. Watch the TV Show here now

However due to the popularity of the Channel TV show ‘The Repo Man’ for the time being we have had removed a number of specific details about our company, along with our telephone number. This is because we have been inundated with calls and well wishers and are unable to cope wit this alongside our day to day work. More details on our contact page

The Repo Man Channel 4 TV Show Reviews

“Sometimes, a programme comes along which succeeds purely on the eccentricity of the central figure. Repo Man was one of them.”
- The Telegraph

“#TheRepoMan is like Vinnie Jones in Lock Stock. Smashing skulls, laying down the law, but takes the time to have a sing song with his lad.”
- Twitter user

“Radio Times : Thursday nights recommended watch”
- The Radio Times

“Sean James of Donegal Investigations is an intriguing, even appealing character”
- The Guardian

Really enjoyed the two programmes, you ought to do some more. There are some real scumbags out there and you and your team do well to get the job done. I can now see that when buying a car a HPI check could be money well spent!

Sean, Just want to tell you what a sound bloke you seem. All those ‘customers’ of yours deserve all they get, if you can’t afford something then you don’t have it, you either save up for it or forget about it, they make me laugh when they blame everyone else or say oh its because I lost my job, if you loose your job you sell the car or what ever it is. Don’t ever question yourself mate you’re doing a sound job. All the best to you and the lads.

Just like to say you guys are awsome.

I found the channel 4 programe featuring you guys quite insperational.. You have the same mentality as me. I was grown up to learn to live within my means.. So I understand when you need to take a car/forklift (haha) or any sort of item off somone because they think they can get away without paying for it, and you do a bloody good job of it.

Over they years i have never been happy in my job but watching what you guys do appeals to me, im kind of rough and rugged train at my gym 4 times a week 5ft 11 weighing in 17stone I think maybe it would suit my kind of mentality.. so anytime you guys need a hand.. let me know! ;)

All the best,

Ashley, Birmingham.

Hello,
Just starting watching the show from way over yonder in Toronto, Canada. As someone who has also worked a thankless job (running security for a nightclub) I can certainly put myself in your shoes. You do an excellent job, and you bring humanity and personality to a professional which is often demonized. I’m sure many in the Repo business are quite happy to have your show on air.
Best of luck to you, your family and your business.
Zach

Enjoy the programme. Keep up the good work. I’ve no feeling for anyone who doesn’t pay his or her way, but I do feel sorry for those that buy second hand and get copped with someone else’s HP agreement, but as you say for £15 they can get any car checked out.

I live in Cannock and I’ve a feeling you may be quite local – I do however not believe in HP so i’m unlikely to come across you!!

Please continue with the programme, its brill.

Loving the show, as an ex repoman myself and owner of Fast Track Repo’s I have enjoyed watching the show as it bought back many memories. With 15 years expeirence I have to admit to missing the life of a repo agent. Fair play to you for getting someone to film you I missed that boat some years ago. I noticed that you visited Stoke in episode 2 (my home town) next tome your there let me know, I may be able to do the some ground work for you, save making a wasted visit. How I miss taking shit of idiots, loved taking their motors though. My own line poker name is still repoman, itching to have one last swan song, so if you have a job near me let me know, just the sound of knocking the door will be enough. Take care, stay safe and dont forget if in doubt just break the window and tow the fucker.

Hi Sean
Been watching your programme for the last two episodes , I enjoy watching it ,but don’t agree with all the methods you use however I’m not a repossesor so what do I know , I’m the same in my game ,I haven’t come across anyone better ,I get called to do all the shit other people can’t and won’t do.i think it’s that that’s made me the way I am ,you’ve got to have that get in and get out no fuckin about attitude otherwise you ain’t worth a rub . I’ve been doing what I do for 12 years now I’m 26 today and run my own firm a like you , the fact you do that line of work , write books ,and the wall murals are spot on too. Hats off to you mate .you r kids will grow up very proud of you I’m sure ,as you remind me of my old man and thats the reason I felt to write this message to you..good on ya ,and all the best fella

Hi Sean, well done to you and your team. I cannot believe the attitude of those that you repo from! What do they think will happen if they do not pay for goods! You do a hard job, and you do it very well! You are polite, professional and courteous with those concerned..unless they have attitude – then they deserve all that is dished out. You also have a good attitude, well humoured and relaxed. You are correct about having a professional image, re uniform, polished boots etc. Good luck to you and your team.

Just wanted to say & i know i’m no one to you, but seen your show & wanted to say that i think your a brilliant dad Sean. What you done & said when feeding your boy & what your older son said, well, i found out recently that i have a 10 year old daughter & i missed out on all those special times. All the crap that you must have to deal with & all the idiot people, but it is obvious to see that you & your family are very happy & have something special. I wish i never missed out on those times, but i just never knew of my daughter. Hope you don’t mind me writing. James Vicary.

Can I just say Sean that I loved the program. Thought you handled yourself very professionally and are just the sort of father we need in this country to repair it.

I am fuming at the people who refer to the stuff as “theirs” and “give me my keys back”. It’s not yours until its paid for.

My husband and I watched your superb show and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was far more riveting to watch than the American version and we hope there will be many more shows in the future.
We totally agree with Sean – if people are not prepared to pay for their goods they should expect them to be taken away from them.
We were always taught to save up and pay.
Frank was in the Royal Signals as a young man and also endorses Sean’s views on National Service.
We think you and your team are doing a great job.
Best wishes.

    Great show!! When’s the next season start??

  2. Mark says:

    I watched both programmes and was impressed with the results of your company. I did feel sorry for the people who were victims of the log book loan, but I found out some valuable information on which check to have done if I was ever buying a car in the future.

    With regard to the people who complained the loudest, if you can’t afford it, you can’t have it. I’m glad that the cars were taken away from people who think that they can have something for nothing. If people lose their jobs and I am very sorry if they do, why didn’t they contact the finance company and work out a deal? I also noticed that the people who couldn’t pay. they all seemed to be smoking. At 7.81 a packet of 20 cigs, I’m not surprised they didn’t have enough money!! Give up the smoking!

    I’m of the old school, save up first and then buy it. You actually save yourself a fortune in interest repayments to finance companies.

    Well done Sean and the team. Let’s see more of you on TV please and let the honest people in the UK know that somebody somewhere is making a stand against the genuine non payers.

    Hi Sean. Love the show! Can I ask why the name Donegal Investigations was chosen? Do you have links to Donegal, Ireland? Also whenever you are up in Glasgow, would love to do a photoshoot with you and your crew.

    kind regards
