    What would you do if you had this much stuff repaired but not picked up?

    Some of it is stuff where owner didn't approve repair......at some point they will give/sell this stuff.

    You need a policy about what happens. After x number of days a storage fee per day starts and after y number of days the item considered abandoned and disposed of at stores discretion.

    Make a final call to the owners and give them a date to get it. If they don't pick it up, sell it.

    If it wasn't approved for repair? Then why did they repair it? That's like us doing Fall clean ups without approval and wondering why we're not getting paid.

    I could see it happening with some situations. I've had the rocker arm pop off the valve stem of 2 blowers this year. If I were working in a repair shop I'd probably have just popped them back on while I had the valve cover off without thinking I should call the customer first.

    And I'd have just repaired the machine without authorization.

    Local laws should be checked before anything is done. Laws may set requirements for timing and manner of notice prior to disposal and may require that the proceeds from any sale of abandoned or unclaimed property be escheated to the state. After finding out what the law requires, one may then make an informed decision whether to comply.

    If they don't approve repair it is tagged and goes in shed awaiting pickup.
