Actually I meant hand yourself into the police for attempting to move a car without the keys. :)

Easiest way is to just buy some wheel dollies until you get the keys sorted as i don't think there is a way without a physical key.

I believe you can loosen or remove something beneath the car to take it out of park. But that’s not going to allow you to switch the car on to release the steering lock or anything else. You’re better off just moving the car by other means (see the suggestion above my post) until it’s sorted. It’s going to be the easier option.

Take off the park actuator and use ratchet and female torx to take it out of park.

Is there a small hole next to the gear selector? Putting a screwdriver in that can release the locking mechanism.

No. There's not. The gear selector is entirely electrical on the leaf, as is the connection to the parking actuator/gearbox lock.

Can't you put it straight onto some sort of trolley ? you'll be able to push the car then

The question really arises as to what surfaceand incline you want to move it on?
Mike's advice will get it to roll as easily as normal but is the harder option. Dollies work well on smooth surfaces but are a pain on anything else. They also have a tendency to move sideways which can be useful but is a risk when going on inclines.

You're obviously not going to drive it anywhere without the keys - as its salvage presumably you have a truck or trailer to transport it? Pull it onto the trailer with a winch.

Cheers.
