Can I retrieve valuables left in my junked car?

What To Do If You Leave Valuables In Your Junked Car

Imagine this scenario. You contacted one of the many free junkcar pickup companies, the date came and went, the car is no longer your problem and you're relieved. One day, you sit down with a cup of coffee and out of the blue you wonder, what happened to my (fill in the blank with any imaginable valuable you could possibly leave in a car)? Suddenly you remember, it was stuffed in the glove compartment of the old clunker you just had towed. Now what? The first thing to do is contact the junk car towing company to see if the item has been found. Do that as soon as possible. If the junkyard company is able to locate the item, they may ask you personal questions to confirm the item is really yours. Be careful what information you give out over the phone. Never give out your Social Security number, banking information or passwords of any kind. The company might be trustworthy, but the person on the other end of the phone might not be. With any luck, you'll be able to retrieve your valuables with little incident. If you happen to know the name of the person who arrived for the junk car removal, ask to talk to that person.
