Abandoned Vehicles

Vehicles that are left in streets or on City of Busselton property for a period exceeding 24 hours may be considered abandoned and become subject to removal and impoundment.

Should you encounter an abandoned vehicle, please contact Ranger and Emergency Services 9781 0444. Please note that abandoned vehicles located on major roads are dealt with by Main Roads (13 81 38).

All attempts will be made to contact the last known registered owner of the vehicle. In the event that the vehicle is not removed, the City will arrange for the vehicle to be impounded.

All impounded vehicles will be stored at an impound facility for a period of 60 days. After this time the vehicle may be sold by public tender or disposed of by other means.

If the vehicle owner believes their vehicle has been impounded, they should contact Ranger and Emergency Services on 9781 0444.

Proof of identity and ownership (registration papers) must be produced. The towing fee and impound fee must be paid prior to the vehicle’s release.
