Stolen vehicles - you can check if a vehicle is stolen on the Police website by entering an individual registration number, or an individual VIN, chassis or engine number (useful for scrap metal dealers and auto dismantlers).
Graffiti removal - Contact Scott Henderson, Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust on 09 269 4080. Free removal if visible from the road, otherwise MBCT will provide a quote for removal. For all premises that are within the Business Improvement District, graffiti will be removed from road facing surfaces to a height of 3 metres above ground level. In the case of the MBCT not having an exact paint match for the affected area, the business or property owner will need to supply the paint. For affected surfaces that are not road facing or above 3 metres the MBCT can still assist but a charge will be incurred.
