Hello and thank you for your question. Please permit me to respond to your concerns. To answer directly, 'yes', a vehicle can be repossessed from a business holding it on a mechanic's lien. If the vehicle is sold, then the payout will occur based on the state laws of "First in Time, First in Right" pertaining to lien priority. Typically mechanic's liens are paid out first, then other creditors upon the sale of the item. Sincerely, ***** *****
