What is the number to call for your car to be picked up because you can not make the payments?

You call the finance company who holds the contract. Depending how much you are behind, they may be willing to offer you a deferment (up to 2 months) where you can just pay the interest for 1 or 2 months to help get you caught up. Another option to a repo is to refinance the loan (again, it all depends on how far behind your are). Once a car is repossessed, it will be sold and if the sale does not cover your loan balance you will still be responsible for what is called a deficiency balance.

Can your car be repossessed from your job's parking lot?

When a car is up to be repossessed, the repossessor can take it from wherever he or she finds it: your home or your driveway, job or church parking lot, friend's, relatives, shopping mall parking lot, street parking, or wherever they catch you out of the car. In most states, they cannot break into a garage but they can take the car if the garage door is up. They can take it even if you try to hide it. It's far better to call your creditor and work out paying your missed payments.
