My motorbike, which is on SORN, was clamped this morning because I had moved it out of my small front garden to work on it and then forgot to put it back. I couldn't ge tthe money together today to pay for it to be released, so they will come back tomorrow to impound it.

But I have moved it, clamp and all, into my front garden! I assume they won't come onto private land to get it. I really don't want it going to the pound, it isn't running quite well enough to get back.

They will probably come onto the private land and carry it out to the truck. if their track record is any guide.

We could do with some help from you.

I would strongly advise against this! we are not talking private clamping here.

 

Not sure you will be able to prevent them from taking it, but you will have to pay the release fee and any back duty from the date the last tax ran out. You may also have to pay a surity charge which will be refunded when you re-tax the bike.

I am reconciled to paying to get it declamped and the surety, but I just don't want it taking to the pound; I have enough to do without retreiving it from there.

So; here's what happened; the towtruck dudes came back this morning, but apparently they couldn't/wouldn't take the bike off my own property (the person on the 'phone at the pound said "they came back but uit wasn't there").

I got the money together and paid via the payment centre rather than the pound. The pound had not asked them to add the second days realease fee, so it was £100 +£160 surety. Not quite as bad as I expected. All i have to do now is get the bike back onto the street and it will be declamped tomorrow. Provided I then put it back in the front garden, I should be OK. So the moral seems to be, if you can get your vehicle off the highway asap when its been clamped, it saves a trip to the pound. Easier with a bike than a car, I admit.
