After his years of service, he concentrated in servicing moving damage claims for large carriers such as United Van Lines, Global, and Atlas.
Attendance at work-related conventions across the country eventually lead Anton to the field of insurance claims, particularly claims that involved damage to antiques caused by fire and water damage.
Consequently, Anton's passion in restoring and refinishing wood furniture, fixtures, and antiques was born: "I enjoy the look of 'shock and awe' on customers' faces when we've exceeded their expectations!" The level of care in antiques and furniture expanded to the need to restore isolated damage to kitchens. The demand to custom color matching existing cabinets and doors proved to be invaluable to the insurance industry.
