It is a good result from the credit card company. What would you like to know?
OK, so you can arrange for the vehicle to be collected and dropped off - there are vehicle couriers you can use and you add their fee on to what the dealer owes you. You should give the dealer say 24 or 48 hours to arrange collection before you do this so you put them on notice of your intention to arrange a courier to deliver their vehicle back to them.
Once you have done that you can sue for your losses on the money claim website, which is http://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
Your other option is to write to the dealer, with a letter before claim (see attached), give them 14 days to arrange collection failing which you will scrap the vehicle and then pursue the dealer for your losses.
The vehicle is not your property, so is currently trespassing on your property now. Another option is to ring the Police on the 101 number to tell them the vehicle is not yours and is causing an obstruction. The local council can also be contacted - they may be able to remove it.
Let me know if you have any other queries - I am happy to assist.
