If your car is repossessed do you have the right to get your personal belongings out of the car?

From experience, yes, you do have the right to get your belongings out of the car. You must first contact the repossession company and find out where they are holding your car.

Second, you must bring a photo ID and in most cases, money for a fee that they charge.

Third, they will have you sign a paper that you obtained your belongings and send you on your way. You must do this before they auction your car off. If you don't, your things are gone forever!

Yes you can retrieve personal belongings from your car if it gets repossessed. By law you are allowed 7 days after your car gets repossessed to retrieve your personal belongings.

You are allowed to remove personals that ARE NOT attached to the vehicle. The license plates stay with you, not the vehicle.

They take out the personal belongings. This includes the tags. Check with the repo company or lender for that stuff back.
