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.
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.
Selling vehicles in public places is considered a nuisance under Council’s Local Law No. 8 (Nuisances and Community Health and Safety). Public places include road reserves, roadways, footpaths and other public land.
The following vehicles will be offered for sale by public auction at Council's Kenneth Street Depot, 2 Kenneth Street, Riverview from 10.00 am, Wednesday 25 September 2019 pursuant to Section 100 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995. Should the owners wish to reclaim these vehicles prior to the auction, please contact Council on (07) 3810 6666. List current as of 2 January 2019
Viewing of vehicles permitted from 8.00am Wednesday 25 September 2019 (day of auction)
Any vehicle purchased at the auction needs to be removed prior to 2.00pm Friday 27 September 2019 or further release fees will apply. Purchases must make arrangements to legally tow or transport vehicles from Council’s depot.
Council reserves the right to withdraw any vehicle from an advertised auction without prior notice.

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:
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.
