I own a bodyshop and repaired a vehicle for a cutomer who had insurance. All went fine until we were finished with the repairs and need to get paid. At that point we found out that the owners of the vehicle were behind on their payments and the leinholder kept the money that the insurance company paid out for the repairs. Then the leinholder proceeded to tell me that they were coming to get the vehicle and was not going to pay for the repairs. I told them I was going to put a mechanics lein on the vehicle. This all took months of back and forth of course and I have been accruing storage fees trying to get them to hurry up and pay for the repairs. My questions is: How do I go about doing a mechanics lein with storage? Or is it two sepearte things? It is so confusing!
