I have sued a motor vehicle repair shop (small claims) and have been awarded approximately $4500.00 which I would like to collect. It has been thirty days and the repair shop has not paid me. I have previously sent a formal letter requesting payment (certified and return receipt) and I'm wondering if someone can advise me of how to proceed. I do not know the repair shop bank account, nor the owner (just the manager who may be the owner) although I do know that they are a licensed Department of Motor Vehicle repair shop and are licensed to do state inspections. (I'm not sure if this can help me.)
Many of the NYS guides as well as forum posts deal with suing an individual and not a business. Can I have the business suspend payment from all employees until I am paid? How can I obtain bank information and then collect money? Etc. Your help is greatly appreciated.
