When the lender contracts out for the a rept to a CA repo agent and that party contracts to a 2nd party Texas agent to complete who is responsible for the damages incurred during the repo?

Regardless of who the agent is that actually repossesses a vehicle the responsibility will remain with the agency that actually accomplished the repossession, however, the Creditor is ultimately responsible for the actions of the agents that they assign an account to. The assigning agency, if they had no actual part in the repossession will probably not be responsible.

What are my rights if a commercial vehicle is illegally repossessed?

Well, first, you'd have to explain how the repossession was illegal. There really isn't any such thing as "illegal repossession"... repossession is a legal process by which a lien holder can recovery property which does belong to them in response to a delinquency of payment or violation of the contract.A vehicle which has no grounds for repossession but was taken was not repossessed - that's theft, plain and simple, and if that's the case, then you'd file a police report, an investigation would commence, arrests would be made, and you'd either recover your vehicle or get an insurance payment if the vehicle was unrecoverable. I'm guessing that's not the case, since you're asking this question here.State laws on time which a delinquency must continue for before seizure of assets can be made varies by state... if this law was violated, then you're going to have to lawyer up and take the legal route against the lienholder (the repossessor is not liable in this instance, as they are contractors following the instructions of the lien holder).A criminal act on the part of the repossession agency has occurred if...A locked gate is breached in the course of the repossession.A secured building is unlawfully entered in the course of the repossession.A vehicle other than the one being repossessed was entered without permission during the course of the repossessionProperty damage occurs during the course of the repossession.In the case of a commercial vehicle, a cargo payload is taken with the vehicle.A trailer attached to the repossessed vehicle which itself is not up for repossession is taken with the vehicle.In those instances, a police report needs to be filed. However, if the repossession itself is legit, that still won't get you the vehicle back.

What should you do if the car was damaged while wrongfully repoed?

Every state requires repossession agents to carry insurance. If the vehicle is damaged during a repossession or especially a wrongful repossession, the agency that secured the unit must have it repaired at their own cost, or as a matter of insurance claim. Remember, do not sign for acceptance on the repairs until you are absolutely satisfied that they have been done properly.

What can you do to protect your rights in the event your vehicle was damaged during repossession?

Mark, you should be prepared to PROVE any recent damage to your vehicle. Scamming to repo comapny about 'damages" is old news. I'll admit, it DOES happen. But not as often as you might like to think. Usually, when someone comes to P/U a repoed car screaming damage, you KNOW they have been primed by the scam artists. The wheel lift trucks in use today are designed for DAMAGE FREE towing. Good Luck Do not waste your time and energy with the repo they are agents for the lenders sue the lender either in small claims or with a lawyer. At least you will bring the lenders attention to the scum they employ.
