Vehicle Legalities and Auctions

There are rules and regulations concerning abandoned or hazardous vehicles, the private sale of vehicles on the roadside and vehicles that have been impounded and subsequently put up for auction.

Abandoned or Hazardous Vehicles

An abandoned vehicle includes an unregistered vehicle parked on a local government controlled area (footpath) or road, or a hazardous vehicle (currently registered or unregistered) that has been left on a road or footpath in a way that creates a risk.

If it has been established that a vehicle is abandoned or hazardous, Ipswich City Council will take steps to remove the vehicle from the road by towing.  It is an offence and a contravention of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 to park an unregistered vehicle on the road or footpath.

Release of Impounded Vehicles

Impounded vehicles are held at an Ipswich City Council holding yard at Riverview. A vehicle may be claimed by the owner within one (1) month from the date of being impounded, subject to:

  • Completion of an Impounded Vehicle Release form
  • Payment of the prescribed release fee - refer to fees and charges
  • Provision of proof of ownership of vehicle (registration details, purchase receipt) and proof of identity (driver licence)

A person acting on behalf of the owner must satisfy Council of their right to possession and authority to act on behalf of the owner.

If a successful claim is not made for the return of a vehicle within one (1) month of the date of impounding, then ownership of the vehicle (and anything in, on or attached to the vehicle) rests with  the local government and the local government may dispose of the vehicle in accordance with section 40 of Ipswich City Council’s Local Law No.1 (Administration) 2013.

All inquiries for the return of impounded vehicles should be made to Ipswich City Council on (07) 3810 6666.
