Getting permission to hold a car boot sale

A car boot sale is an outdoor sale where people sell unwanted possessions, usually from the boots of their cars.

If you would like to hold a car boot sale in Birmingham, you must apply for permission from the council.

All the money you make from letting car boot space must go to charity. Commercial car boot sales are not permitted under any circumstances.

There is a fee to hold a car boot sale and there are rules you must follow.
