Federal and states laws do not allow repossession agents move a vehicle that may be blocking in a wanted vehicle without the permission of that vehicle's owner. That being said, most agents will not hook a blocking vehicle to move it for liability reasons. That being said, there are exceptions to every rule, and there are some less scrupulous repossession agents who will do whatever they deem necessary to get a wanted vehicle. These are the exception and not the rule.

Here's the thing: if an agent has moved a vehicle that you had blocking in another that was up for repossession, contact your states bureau of licensing and report them. You might also report it to your local law enforcement agency. Additionally, consider that blocking a wanted vehicle to prevent repossession could be a felony in your state; this is called Hindering a Lender, and may be prosecuted like Auto Theft.

Another thing to consider is that the sole purpose of the job of a repossession agent is to recover vehicles up for repossession. Blocking in a wanted vehicle makes his job more difficult. Now think about how you respond if someone makes the job you do more difficult. Repossession agents, most of them, are very good at their jobs, and very motivated; if they do not recover, they do not get paid. Now think about where the most inconvenient place would be to have your vehicle repossessed. Church? School? The Winn Dixie as you walk out with melting ice cream and your screaming progeny to see your car being towed away behind the repo truck as the driver waves at you? Make it easy on yourself.

NO!!! I'm sorry but whoever fool you and told you this is a fool. It is only a repo mans job to move your car if perhaps another car is interfearing with him doing his job then he consults his boss.

No. A repo agent is only permitted to move and enter the vehicle which they have an order for repossession on.

No, they cannot. By law, they're only entitled to enter and move the vehicle they have an order for repossession on. The only way they can move another vehicle is if the owner of that vehicles gives them permission to do such.

No. Unless they're given permission from the owner of the other vehicle, they can only legally enter and move the vehicle they have an order for repossession on. If they move another vehicle, they're guilty of a criminal offense.
