Unwanted and abandoned vehicles

This service is designed to be proactive and to reduce the costs to the city when dealing with abandoned vehicles.

If you would like an unwanted vehicle removed

It’s free at the moment thanks to an amnesty on the removal fee.

You will need submit a Vehicle Disposal Owner Declaration, available at Customer Services in the Civic Centre (please note, this service is not available at any other service centre).

Bring your driver’s licence as we need to include a photocopy of this with your declaration.

We will do checks to ensure that you are the owner and can sign over ownership.

When we have owner confirmation we will contact you to organise collection of the vehicle.

  • Your vehicle can be in any condition as long as it has no rubbish in it.
  • It can be on your property, as long as a tow truck can get to it easily and safely.
