Claim an abandoned vehicle

Claim an abandoned vehicle

Wiltshire Council will inspect any vehicles reported to them as abandoned.

If the officer deems the vehicle abandoned they will affix a 24 hour, 7 day or 15 day Removal Notice to the vehicle.

In the event of a vehicle being deemed not abandoned, no action will be taken. In certain circumstances, an officer may leave a contact card on the vehicle to initiate communication with the vehicle owner/keeper. Failure to act if a contact card is placed on your vehicle may result in the vehicle being deemed abandoned.

Please use this form to claim a vehicle that has had a contact card, 24 hour, 7 day or 15 day Removal Notice affixed to it.

Please fully complete this form with all of the required information so that the enforcement team can assess whether all criteria has been met to cancel the abandoned vehicle report.

If Yes, do you have written consent from the landowner to keep the car at the location?
