Transfer of vehicles

If you wish to dispose of your vehicle, the City Council can handle everything for you

If your car is now past its best, don’t just abandon it!

An abandoned vehicle is toxic waste that takes up space on the public highway and makes the city ugly. You could even end up being fined. 

Barcelona City Council’s Old Vehicle Collection Service enables you to dispose of your vehicle easily, quickly, safely - and completely free of charge. You'll also be helping to make Barcelona a nicer place and more respectful of the environment.

All you need to do is waive the ownership of your vehicle in favour of Barcelona City Council and we'll take care of everything, with full guarantees:

We collect the vehicle from the public highway
We handle the process of de-registering it
We take it to a “CAT” (authorised processing centre) to be scrapped and decontaminated

What do I need to do?

There are three ways you can transfer ownership of your vehicle to the Council:

Take the vehicle to one of the municipal vehicle compounds in Barcelona.

Or take it to the vehicle compound at the Polígon Can Estapé de Castellbisbal industrial estate.

Or request the removal of the vehicle from the highway, giving the precise location where it is parked. In this case, you must have previously been to one of the municipal vehicle compounds or to the BSM Client Attention Office (Calàbria, 66-Barcelona) to process the voluntary transfer of ownership.


How much will it cost me?

Absolutely nothing. The service is totally FREE OF CHARGE
