Abandoned vehicles are managed so that they do not become a public nuisance. Vehicles include cars, trailers, utes, vans, motorcycles. A sticker will be placed on the vehicle to advise that it must be moved within 7 working days or it will be towed by a Council Contractor.
We collect them from public roads, parks and reserves - not from private property.
Please ensure that when you wish to make a complaint for an abandoned vehicle that you have the following information:
- where is the vehicle located?
- how long has it been there?
- description of the car and is it driveable?
- does it have a current Registration and Warrant of Fitness?
- Licence Plate number
Phone Tauranga City Council on 07 577 7000 and they can arrange removal.
