1. Allow someone else to collect the car with the owner’s authority.
2. Remove the car from your property so they can collect it from an alternate location.

1 is better than 2 for liability reasons.

It makes no difference to you whether a car is secured, unless the lender is looking to repossess.

I doubt getting his car repossessed is going to inspire him to return your belongings.
Rob has advised the best course of action.

Won’t return your belongings? Contact the police.

Need to find out the lender? Do a Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) search. Costs about $16. You can order one here: www.ppsr.gov.au

You may perform a PPSR Search, where details of security interests in personal property can be registered and searched. This includes Vehicle.
