What to do if your vehicle has been removed

We are one of the recovery companies that may be instructed to remove your vehicle by the BCP council.

Please see the council website for details of other companies that may remove your vehicle.

Your car will have been removed to a secure compound.

To find out how to collect your car, ring 01202 912949 between 9am and 6pm.
Only use this number if you think your car has been impounded, they are unable to help you with other parking enquiries.

You will be able to make an appointment to collect your car between these hours and we will tell you where it is located. Collection is not possible without an appointment.

You will need to bring identification with you and provide payment before we will release your vehicle. Details can be found below.

Releasing your vehicle from the car compound

To secure the release of a vehicle that has been taken to the car compound, the vehicle owner will need to visit the pound in person and:

  • pay the removal charges
  • provide personal identification
  • provide proof of address

See the Council website for more information.


We are unable to help you with an appeal.

If you think that the PCN (Penalty Charge Notice) should not have been issued or your vehicle was wrongly impounded, you can appeal – but only after you have paid for the release of your vehicle from the car pound.

For more information about appeals and how to pay your PCN please see the BCP Council website:
