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

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.

  • 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.
