Payments??YES. PAYOFF???NO My husband lost his job and had to take a different job making less money so our payments were late and the several were not made at all. At the time of the repossession I was in the process of trying to get a personal loan from a family member to just pay off what we owed. The vehicle was reposessed before I could get the money. The day after they took it, I called and asked what it was going to take to get my vehicle back. The woman was extremely nasty to me and informed me that with our payment history she was not going to give it back to me. She did not offer me a pay off amount or even let me get a word in. She had me in tears before she hung up on me. I could not afford an attorney so we just did nothing. The van has now been sold at auction. It sold for $1200 at auction. Now we are getting letters demanding the amount we owed plus $200 more even though they sold the van for $1200. I know they can legally expect us to pay for the amount of the outstanding debt, but I don't understand how they can refuse to let me pay before they auction it, then come up with a higher amount we owe than what was left on the loan AFTER they sell it. We couldn't afford to make the payments before and now I have used the personal loan from the family member to purchase a different vehicle. We have no money to pay for a vehicle we no longer have.......plus $200 more than we owed to pay it off. Is there nothing I can do?

How long after a missed car payment does the finance company repossess the vehicle?

The question is, "Why would you worry about a missed payment when you have interest in the vehicle?" The money that you used as your down payment and any payments you have made total your interest in the vehicle. Why are people running from the repo man when in fact you can place the finance company on notice that, if your interest is repossessed, you will file criminal charges in federal court against the finance company and get triple what the car is worth. I guarantee you they won't take it. You can also put a mechanics lien on the vehicle to protect your interest in it.

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.

Yes. A dirt bike is the same as a street bike or any other type of vehicle. if you miss the payments, and the financier wants to exercise his rights to seizure, he can do so. If you are behind on payments the best thing to do is contact your finance company and explain your circumstances to him. There are probably options available to avoid repossession. The last thing any finance company wants to do is repossess their 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.

While most creditors will allow you to have your vehicle voluntarily repossessed, some lenders will not accept them.

How does voluntary repossession work on an RV in NC?

Instead of having it forcibly repossessed, you call your finance company and tell them you're voluntarily having it repossessed. They may send a tow service to collect it, or they may ask you to take it to the repossessor. It'll be repossessed, auctioned off, and the amount they get from the auction will be deducted from the amount you owe. The finance company may offer a settlement at that point for an amount less than what you owe on that vehicle - that's up to the finance company.
