Report an unwanted vehicle

Report an abandoned vehicle online using our customer portal, or email Customer Services, or call 01908 252277.

We aim to investigate reports of abandoned vehicles within 1 working day of receiving the report. If the vehicle is found to be abandoned, we aim to the remove within 3 weeks.

The Fixed Penalty Notice for abandoning a vehicle is £200. In addition, when the council traces the owner of an abandoned vehicle, we automatically impose a statutory fee of £175 minimum, plus storage fees of £20 per day.

We will also remove unwanted, damaged or unroadworthy vehicles from outside people's homes for a fee of £50 for a car or small van. Larger vehicles may cost more.

To arrange for us to collect a vehicle from your home please complete the Dial a Wreck form (DOC, 43KB). You will need to make sure you have the V5 log book for the vehicle.

Please return the form (and cheque, made payable to ‘Milton Keynes Council’. Or you can send the form and then pay over the phone):
