Abandoned vehicles

An abandoned vehicle is one 'which appears to have been left without lawful authority'. It may not have been moved for a long time and be:

  • untaxed
  • in poor condition
  • vandalised (broken windows, removed tyres, burnt)

We do not:

  • remove abandoned vehicles from private land unless requested to do so by the landowner, the police or the fire department
  • remove stolen vehicles or those that have been involved in an accident

Report an abandoned vehicle

To report an abandoned vehicle contact us with the following information:

  • your name, address and contact telephone number
  • location of the vehicle
  • vehicle type (car, van, caravan, motorbike)
  • its condition (good, fired or damaged)
  • whether it is taxed
  • registration number
  • any other information that will help us to resolve your request

If a vehicle is abandoned, we will arrange to get it removed as soon as possible.
