What we do?

We're responsible for the removal of abandoned vehicles, and arrange for either their disposal or storage. The process for doing this is as follows:

  • we contact the Police, and they complete checks on the vehicle
  • the Police then give us authority to remove the vehicle
  • once we remove the vehicle Norfolk County Council take over responsibility
  • Norfolk County Council try to trace the owner and recover the costs for the removal

Untaxed vehicles

You can report an untaxed vehicle on the highway via the Department for Transport website.
