If you can't take the time out of work then another option is to ask REAL nicely if someone will meet you in a place more convenient for you.
I know for me I don't have a car and my rep was nice enough to meet me half way somewhere so all I had to do was jump on a bus and not go across the city to get verified.
Also krackens aren't actually that bad from what people are saying, just some minor reliability upgrades and it will shoot fine. Stock they're hit and miss on reliability from what I've read. Get some paint and paint it up nicely, no one will know the difference
