Removal, storage, sale or disposal of vehicles from Council roads

Under the Health, Safety and Amenity Local Law 2021 (the Local Law), Council may seize and remove vehicles on Council roads or road related areas (e.g. footpath, dividing strip or public cycle paths) if they are:

  • unregistered,
  • abandoned,
  • unsightly or
  • otherwise parked in a hazardous location.

A list of seized and removed vehicles is published in accordance with the Local Law on this page. These vehicles may be claimed by the owner within 28 days from the date of seizure and removal, and sold or disposed of by Council once that timeframe has passed.

Find out Information about vehicles removed from Council parks.  

Seized vehicles

Where a vehicle is seized and removed under the Local Law, and there is a person in charge of the vehicle present at the time of seizure, the Council officer will issue a notice of removal to that person. If there is no person present at the time of seizure, Council will attempt to issue the notice of removal to the last known registered owner of the vehicle.

The details of all vehicles seized and removed from Council roads and road related areas are published in the following table. Vehicles will be listed as soon as practicable and displayed for at least 14 days.

Release of seized vehicles

If you are the person claiming a right to possession of a seized vehicle, you must be able to meet the following requirements:

  • provide proof of ownership or right to possession to Council’s satisfaction (such as registration notice, statutory declaration, etc.)
  • provide photographic identification
  • pay the applicable release fee.

A person has up to 28 days to contact Council to arrange for collection of the vehicle, satisfy the requirements of ownership, pay the applicable release fee and arrange for collection of the vehicle. To start the process of claiming a removed vehicle, phone Council on 07 3403 8888 and quote the Council reference number provided on the notice of removal.

Disposal of removed vehicles

Seized or removed vehicles that are:

  • not claimed within 14 days; or
  • claimed vehicles where the claiming requirements have not been met within 28 days after being seized or removed

will be disposed of by Council. The Local Law allows Council to offer a vehicle, or any part of a vehicle, for sale by private treaty, tender, expression of interest or auction. If there is no purchaser or the sale of the vehicle (or part of the vehicle) would be prohibited under legislation (e.g. the Takata airbag recall), Council can otherwise dispose of the vehicle or part of it through any way it considers appropriate.

Auction of removed vehicles

Removed vehicles approved for auction are auctioned at Manheim, 110 Lamington Avenue, Eagle Farm. Vehicles for auction will be published on this page.
