Get Marty: Couple’s Damaged Car Gets Locked In Bankrupt Business

WEST VIEW (KDKA) — A West View couple, desperate to get their damaged car out of a bankrupt business, reached out to Get Marty.

“It’s horrible. It’s just horrible. We haven’t had our car in more than a month,” says Helen Frazier.

Helen and Woodrow Frazier brought their Kia Sorento to West View Auto Body for repairs after a fender bender. The car needed about $1,000 worth of work on it.

Turns out, the owner of West View Auto Body went broke. The business was bankrupt, auctioned off at sheriff sale.

The Fraziers couldn’t contact the owner. They couldn’t get their car out of the locked body shop. It sat in the shop for more than a month.

“Marty was our last resort. I had to call him,” says Helen.

KDKA called the new owner, who agreed to open the building. And Shults Ford of Harmarville towed the car from garage and agreed to finish the repairs for free.

“This is amazing. Thank God, thank God,” says Frazier.

Meanwhile, the new owners of West View Auto Body want all of the cars out of the building in the next two weeks.

They will leave all keys in the cars. They will do anything they can to help folks retrieve their vehicles.
