It’s always music to one’s ears hearing that a stolen car has been recovered. From there, it’s a steady process in order to get the vehicle back where it belongs. You’ll know this is the case when the police contact you and help arrange for you to reclaim your vehicle. If you are unable to come and get it, it will be impounded, and you will have to pay the associated fees. 

Once your car is back in your possession, you should let the police know of anything left inside it that doesn’t belong to you. From there, it’s all about letting your insurance provider know if anything is missing from the car and that you got it back. If your car has a lender, then keep them in the loop as well.
