Law Girl :

What state are you in?

Customer :

Arizona

Law Girl :

Thank you. I have to check one more authority and will be back in just a second to provide you with (hopefully) helpful information.

Customer :

Thank You

Law Girl :

Your personal property items are yours. You have every right to retrieve them and the repo company has no right to charge you to retriever your personal property items.

Customer :

So I just go and ask for them back.

Law Girl :

You may consider contacting the local police department to see if they will assist in ensuring that you have access to your property. At the very minimum, they can make a report.

Law Girl :

Many repo companies will consider backing off if you threaten to get the police involved.

Customer :

I'm filling bankrupcty so I had the car in the garage until the court hearing, then I could buy the car back. They couldn't wait.

Law Girl :

I'm sorry, that sounds like a rough situation. If only they would listen to reason.

Customer :

Thank you for your help.

Law Girl :

No problem. Best of luck to you!
