Q: a vehicle was totaled by insurance i have stored it i want to be payed or i want title
my friend had an accident i payed for the vehicle to be towed to my residents. The Insurance company totaled the car. It has been stored at my property for several months.I now want the storage fee payments and the towing fee payment or i want the title of the vehicle.
A: So what do you want to know? Send the pertinent parties (the fiancé company if any, the insurance company, and your friend) letters requesting that they sign the title to you or pay your storage fee.
Bruce Alexander Minnick agrees with this answer
A: You can talk to your friend see if you can get a deal. Because there is no prerequisite condition for you to store the car, it could be construed as gratitious fee.
A: When the insurance company declared the wreck a total loss they paid your friend the apprised value of the car before the accident. That means the insurance company now owns the wreck and can do whatever it wants with it. In most cases the insurance company pays the towing company to haul it away; and if the towing company has a junk yard they usually end up buying to wreck in return for their storage fees. If you paid the towing charge then your friend should reimburse you--because he was probably reimbursed by the insurance company as part of the settlement.
Regarding you desire to (1) get reimbursed for YOUR "storage costs" and (2) get reimbursed for the towing charge you paid (FOR YOUR FRIEND), or (3) get a clean title to the wreck. Advice: Your relief can only come from the insurance company; and I am sure they will sell you the wreck if you want it. But do not expect all three demands to be met.
