If it has finally come time for you to part ways with your old beloved automobile, we're here for you. Daves Junkyard has successfully recycled hundreds of thousands of vehicles since it first started operating in 1993.
Here are some common questions people must ask themselves when they are getting ready to junk a vehicle.
Do I have the Title for my vehicle, or do I need it?
All vehicles year 1999 & Prior DO NOT require a title to be recycled at a licensed facility. Vehicles Year 2000 & Newer Require a Title to be recycled. If you have lost your title you can file for a duplicate title through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
The price you will receive for your vehicle is determined by several factors, mainly the weight of the vehicle, whether it is a complete vehicle, if you can drive it to us over the scale, or if we have to send out a tow truck to pick it up. We'll pay the most for a complete vehicle driven to our scale. We a set dollar amount per short ton (2000lbs) of weight. So if your vehicle weighs 3,300lbs - you will receive a check for 1.65 X current market price. Please view our current price sheet to see what are current payouts are. Or call the office 207-865-4702 for more information.
A complete vehicle is a vehicle that has no missing parts, generally one that is still running and driving down the road. It must have 4 wheels, a battery, and a catalytic converter to get complete pricing. If it is missing wheels, a battery, or the converter it will get an incomplete vehicle price.
Have I removed everything I need from my vehicle?
Please remove any personal belongings you want to save from your vehicle. This includes the license plates if you wish to re-use them. Yes you are allowed to place unwanted scrap metal in your vehicle to add weight to it so long as it doesn't contain any refrigerants (Such as A/C units or refrigerators).
We'll issue you a business check. Please don't forget to bring the title if its a 2000 or newer and a valid photo I.D. If we are towing your vehicle we can mail you a check or send one out with the driver.
Great! If your vehicle is still on the road and able to make it to us come on down, the price is right! We're located at 13 Allen Range Rd. Freeport, Maine. We're located on the left side of the road you can't miss us! The entrance to scale is located just past the Main building on the right side of the parking lot. Go ahead and drive up to the stop sign, and if no one is on the scale proceed to the middle of the scale. Place the vehicle in park and step into the scale house with your information and the title. Someone will get a weight slip on the vehicle and prompt you on where to park your vehicle. Make sure you remove all your belongings before you bring it on to get weighed.
Below is a diagram on how to find the scale.
Generally vehicles that come in for scrap are drained off all of their hazardous fluids. Once this has been finished it will sit in our parts yard until it is time to be recycled for metal content. Vehicles are then eventually processed further in preparation for the shredder.
