What is a Towing, Storage, or Mechanic's Lien?
Basically, when a vehicle is left at your business and you have towing, storage, or repair
fees on the vehicle, you can get a Permit to Sell (title) so you can sell the vehicle.  

When can a Mechanic's Lien, Towing Lien, or Storage Lien be
used?
 
There is no waiting period.  When a customer leaves a vehicle on your property.  The
business can start storage as soon as it feels necessary, HOWEVER
you must start the
paperwork on that vehicle when you start charging storage
.

How Does It Work?
There is a specific detailed process of paperwork that is required by law for the business
to be authorized to charge storage and obtain the Permit to Sell (Title).  Once you have
your Storage License and a customer leaves a vehicle* on your property you contact me.  
I will start the process for you.  I will handle everything from start to finish.

Requirements:
  • Vehicle MUST be located on your property
  • Have Storage Inspection License (This is a simple one page form)
  • Accurate Vin number
  • Picture of vehicle

How Long does it take?
Every vehicle is different.  The shortest possible time would be about 70 days, there is no
way to say the longest amount of time it could take. Once the state reviews the file, they
may require additional steps to be performed.  When the file meets all requirements they
will process a Permit to Sell or Permit to Dismantle.  I can not guarantee how long it will
take the state to process the file.  I have seen it take them process anywhere from a few
weeks to months. (It depends on their work load at the time they receive the file).

Confusing? Don't worry, I have 15 years experience with this and you don't have to
do anything, I will handle it all!  Contact me today and I will help you get the process
started.



Vehicle* is anything that is titled through the Louisiana Department of Public Safety,
including but not limited to automobiles, mobile homes, utility trailer, boat trailer etc.
