Abandoned vehicles

We will deal with any vehicles reported as abandoned on local roads or property (usually including private property).

We will need to know some details about the car, such as:

  • location
  • make and model
  • colour

We can only remove vehicles which do not have road tax. You can check if the vehicle has a valid road tax on the DVLA website.

After you report an abandoned vehicle we will inspect and assess the vehicle. If the vehicle is in a dangerous position we would usually remove it within 24 hours. In most cases we put up a 15 day notice of removal before we take the vehicle away.

If the vehicle is illegally parked, please contact the Police.
