We have an auto repair shop and we have a few cars there that the owners have not come back to pick up their car or pay their bill. They have been there ranging from 6 months to 1 1/2 years. What legally can we do to either get the money for the bill or can we legally take possession of the car to sell to recover our costs? These bills arent cheap ones, $500-$2000 We have even sent out bills stating we were going to start charging them storage fees, to no reply.
