In Ohio...they are required to give back your personal belongings. This does not include anything that is a permanent fixture on/in the a stereo system or rims. If they refuse to give back your personal belongings...I would contact an attorney and pursue legal action.

Have the car voluntarily repossessed. Using this option means that you voluntarily return the car to the finance loan company if you are too far behind on your payments and can't recover.

What can you do when a repossession company will not return your personal belongings unless you pay a charge and will the police help you in getting your things back?

It depends on which state you live in, so check the law. In Florida, anything inside a towed or repossessed car is still the property of the owner. The repo company may have a right to take back what property they own by default (in this case, you car for non-payment); however, they have no legal right to keep your other property or charge you for its return. That is considered theft. You can call your local PD or courthouse and they can tell you what to do. If it is considered theft in your state, call the police and they will respond to the repo company to help you retreive your property.

How do you get a repossed vehicle back?

If your car is repossessed and you want to get it back, you can contact the finance company and clear any outstanding payments. They may agree to return your vehicle to you if they have not already sold it but be warned that lenders try and sell repossessed vehicles as quickly as possible to try and recoup funds. The finance companies often sell the repossessed vehicles at a car auction. Here they can be sold "as seen" and at a lower price than market value, thus they can be sold quickly. It is often possible to find out which auction your car is being sold at and you can get your repossessed vehicle back yourself by attending the car auction and bidding.
