There is a complicated legal procedure that must be precisely followed in the majority of cases. From start to finish this legal procedure can take 120 days, and it is prescribed by law, therefore there is nothing we can do to change it. The only time the procedure can be made to operate quicker is when the vehicle is not safe, or is a complete wreck.
If your vehicle has been removed by Tameside MBC you can arrange to retrieve it by completing the Recovery of abandoned cars on-line form. On receipt of the form we will advise you of the costs involved and issue a release note.
