We are a -haul trucking company with our own semi-truck

We are a long-haul trucking company with our own semi-truck repair shop. We make repairs to the owner operators' semi-trucks for thousands of dollars at a time. Little by little they pay us back. However, sometimes they leave our trucking company and they don't pay their repair bills. We currently have several such truck owners. The amounts they owe us range between $15K and $40K per truck. I know that filing liens against their trucks would be a complex process involving submitting complicated paperwork and closely following various deadlines. I need to find a reputable company whose employees would follow all rules and regulations and file proper IL Labor and Storage liens on the trucks. I found numerous Commercial Debt Collection companies online (attorneys), however they all said they didn't file liens.
