Customer Question

We closed one of our collision centers temporarily due to a purchase dispute with property owner but several owners picked up their cars from repairs but signed the repair order whereas the repair clearly states that if they do not pay the repair bill their car is subject for repossession under Texas statute .Now can we still pursue the customer for money owed and or repo their car if necessary to collect ?CS1

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you have a signed agreement that the owner agreed to allow you to repossess their car if they do not pay, then you can legally repossess their car if you can do so without disturbing the peace. Once you repossess it you can hold it under a mechanic's lien and then you would have to sue to force them to pay or get an order to sell the car for the amount due.
