Report an Abandoned Vehicle

Get Started

To report an abandoned vehicle, contact the abandoned vehicle specialist with the following information:

  • Make of vehicle
  • Model of vehicle
  • Vehicle color
  • Exact location of vehicle (street and number, or street and nearest cross street)
  • License plate number
  • Length of time the vehicle has been there (be as exact as possible)
  • Your name and contact number (in case we have questions, we will keep this confidential)

Private Property

If the vehicle is in the city limits and not on private property, you may submit the information online.

If the vehicle is on private property we require a notarized signature by a person having control over the property. You may print out a private property abandoned vehicle (PDF) form.

More Information

Missoula City Codes state a vehicle is in violation if it's parked for more than 5 consecutive days, being parked for the purpose of sale, repair or storage.
