The telephone call can last up to about half an hour and it costs GBP43 which compares very favourably to high street rates of GBP250 per hour. However, it’s optional.
We can carry on on here, if you wish. The police will not be interested.
I have known people in circumstances that you are in, simply get the vehicles moved onto the road and then call the police that these vehicles are not taxed, not tested, not insured, and that the owner should be prosecuted.
You could of course get somebody to take them on a trailer and dump them on his driver outside his house and charging for the cost.
However the correct way of dealing with it is differently.
The correct way is to serve him with a Torts Interference with Goods Act notice in respect of abandoned goods.
You need to tell him what the goods are, where they are, and when he can collect them and tell him that he has 28 days (a reasonable period) expiring on DATE to remove the goods/vehicles after which you will get them removed and disposed of for scrap and you will charge him for the cost of removing them, taking him to court if necessary for that cost.
If you want to serve Torts Interference with Goods Act notice document instead of giving it by hand, then send by recorded delivery and also first class post. First class post needs to be done at the Royal counter and you need to get proof of posting. If the recorded delivery letter is signed for, all well and good. Sometimes they get refused. If you send it by first class post and you can prove it was posted, somewhat bizarrely, under the Postal Rule, Royal Mail is deemed to be 100% reliable. Therefore, as long as it wasn’t returned to sender and as long as they cannot prove they didn’t get it (very difficult to prove a negative like that) then they are deemed to have received it.
