Oh yeh baby happens all the time,see we repomen dont like arguements we let the other people deal with that .Just let me give this little bit of advice if your payments are behind travel litely. The recovery agent can and will take your vehicle with your personals in it. If you catch him in the process of taking your vehicle, it is best to make a deal with him. Offer to trade him the keys for your personals. Why do I suggest a trade? Because they are required to inventory and verify ownership of personal belongings. What would be easier? I quick show of a license in your driveway and giving up your keys or having him take it to his lot, inventory it, store it, charge you a fee for inventory and storage? It is really up to you.
