Please note: we can only investigate vehicles that have been abandoned on public land.Report an abandoned vehicle
After you finish
Our rangers investigate each report of an abandoned vehicle by:
- attempting to contact the last known owner to move the vehicle
- checking if the vehicle is registered and is not stolen
- regularly monitoring the vehicle until we hear from the owner
- removing the vehicle if the owner takes no action.
This process can take up to 60 business days, depending on the registration status of the vehicle.
If a vehicle has already been processed by us, it will have an abandoned sticker on the windscreen or windows.
