How to reclaim your vehicle
To arrange the release of your vehicle you must contact the recovery operator. We'll tell you who this is and the recovery operator will tell you if we've allowed the vehicle to be released yet.
You must provide two forms of identification, one of which must be photographic and the other providing address details.
Recovery operators are open for the release of vehicles from Monday to Friday, 9am to 1pm (please don't arrive any later than 12.30pm), excluding public holidays, and Saturdays from 8am to 12pm, by appointment only.
Payment of charges
Payment should be made directly to the recovery operator when you collect your vehicle.
Statutory charges apply to most vehicles removed to a pound, depending upon the reason for removal.
