In Tennessee, a truck or car finance company can hire a repossession company to take your vehicle if you do not make payments and are in default. They are not able to break into a locked garage to take your vehicle and they cannot forcibly remove a person from behind the wheel of the car.
is there limitatons on a default of loan on a vehicle as far as civil action?
There is no company with the name "Repo Truck", but "repossession" of a vehicle simply means the financial lending company "takes back" the vehicle, because monthly payments on the vehicle have ceased.
Not only does Honda have insurance on the vehicle, so does the repossession company, the storage company, the transport company, and the aution agency.
Our company that refinanced the vehicle is threatning to garnish wages and garnish our other vehicle (of which is paid for) and other assets.
what are the legalities of voluntary vehicle repossession
You need very good proof it was not damaged before the repossession. Nearly impossible to do as he can say it was damaged when he got it (and he will, believe me).

If the finance company has sold it, you have you answer. How can you be so stupid?
When you purchased the car, you may have received a lien title from the state. This is not a clear title of ownership. The lender in essence still owns the vehicle, at least part of it. It is held in security for the loan. If you are a repossession company or agent, you will be required to have an order of repossession. But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.
Possibly. If you hide the vehicle they could charge you with GTA. Grand Theft Auto. Remember, they own it and you don't.
Actually a company can reposses your vehicle without notice. When the terms of a finance contract is broken the company has all rightd at that time. They are under no obligation to notify you.
Fees vary from lot to lot and repossession company to repossession company. I have seen daily rates as low as $10.00 and as high as $150.00. Your best bet is to get the matter resolved as soon as possible and redeem your vehicle.
I don't think there is a statute of limitation on repossession of a vehicle anywhere as long as there is an overdue payment outstanding.
Dealerships are not typically recognized repossession agents, however, if you bring in a vehicle for service, and a valid repossession order exists for that vehicle, the delareship may secure the vehicle for the lender so that repossession may take place.
When a debtor is behind on payments, NC law allows the lender to take possession of, or "repossess" the vehicle. A repo company on behalf of the lender can take the vehicle at anytime, anywhere that the vehicle is found and accessible. If the vehicle is in a locked fence or garage then the repo company cannot force entry to get to the vehicle.

It isn't relevant as both states allow repossession of a vehicle under UCC laws (without a breach of peace).
A "repossession notice" is a civil matter. A police oficer cannot hold the vehicle for repossession. Unless, there has been a court proceeding and the judge has ordered the vehicle held if stopped. A repossession notice also cannot stop the registration of a vehicle.
The average price a bank pays to repossess a vehicle is anywhere from 200.00 to 400.00. The actual price will vary depending on the company and location of the car.
No, it's 100% legal. That finance company is the lienholder. What that means is that, until you've paid that vehicle off and have acquired the title, the lienholder is the rightful owner of that vehicle, and has every right to reclaim their property when the conditions of the contract are not met by the lessee.
a voluntary repossession is where you turn over the vehicle instead of us having to come get it from you. www.aerecoveryandtowing.com
