Have you gotten a Public Nuisance notice from the City of Raleigh about that clunker you have with wasps nests in it, sunk down into the yard to the rims, and a tree growing through the broken sunroof? Yeah. They’re not cheap. They’ll let you know that they’ve got their eyes on you and give you a warning – once. The next one if you don’t get rid of the problem or get it taken care of? Not so cheap. About $350 out of your pocket if you don’t correct the situation. The next one if you STILL don’t straighten it out? $600. Ouch.
We make it easy to get that problem straightened out fast!
We’re ready to drag that old beater out of your yard and GIVE you money – NOT take it. If it truly is sunken down in the mud/dirt, give us a heads up so we can bring the right kind of truck to get it out of there – but regardless, we’re going to hand you some cash bucks for it.

Raleigh Public Nuisance Laws and Your Junked or Wrecked Vehicle
Straight from Raleigh NC Gov website on abandoned, nuisance and the kinds of vehicles that we want to GIVE you cash for.
City ordinances (Part 12 Chapter 7) prohibit abandoned and nuisance vehicles. An abandoned motor vehicle is one that is:
- Left on any public street or highway in violation of a traffic or parking law;
- Left on any public street or highway longer than seven days;
- Left on property owned or operated by the City of Raleigh for longer than 24 hours; or,
- Left on private property without the consent of the property owner, occupant or tenant for longer than two (2) hours
A nuisance motor vehicle is one which:
- Serves as a breeding ground or harbor for insects, rats or other pests;
- Is surrounded by heavy growth or weeds or other vegetation over eight inches high;
- Is being used to store combustibles, such as gasoline, oil or other explosive or flammable materials;
- Is a collection for garbage, waste or water;
- Is positioned in such a manner that it may fall, turn over or make an unsafe movement;
- Is considered unsafe due to jagged metal or broken glass; or,
- Any other vehicle that the City Council has specifically declared a health and safety hazard and a public nuisance
The City of Raleigh Police Department is responsible for the removal of abandoned or nuisance vehicles from public streets or City-owned property. No notice to the vehicle owner is required. The Housing & Neighborhood Preservation Division is responsible for the removal of abandoned or nuisance vehicles from private property. The vehicle owner is notified of the violation by a notice affixed to the vehicle and by certified mail. If the violation is not corrected by the date set by the City (no sooner than seven days after the notice is affixed), the vehicle will be towed away at the owner’s expense. To regain possession of the vehicle, the owner must pay storage fees owed to the towing company as well as towing charges. If payment is not made, the towing company will dispose of the vehicle.
City ordinance also prohibits the open storage of two or more vehicles that are:
- Crushed; or
- Partially or totally dismantled
After preliminary inspection and notification of violation by the City, the vehicle owner is given a deadline to remove the vehicle. If the vehicle is not removed by the deadline, the City inspector may issue a civil citation against the owner with an initial fine of $100 per vehicle. If the violation is not corrected after the initial citation is issued, the fine increases to $500 per day until the matter is resolved.
