In a family matter, D & W personnel were professional, yet very sensitive, to the nature of the request for records. I applaud their willingness to assist my family in getting to the truth of a very ...sad matter. See More

As you can see, no vehicle nor load is too small for us to accommodate here at D&W Salvage, Inc.! We noticed this little guy in the tin pile and had to share because it was just too cute. Happy Friday everyone!

Even a praying mantis decided to pay us a visit this morning! I guess you can now say that we are 'insect friendly' as well. Happy Thursday everyone!

D&W Salvage Inc. added 4 new photos — with Ian Deering.

The Great Race is a timed distance/endurance rally in vehicles built in 1972 and earlier. It is physically and mentally exhausting, very challenging, and extremely competitive.

To be successful you must have a mechanically sound vehicle, an alert driver, and a mentally focused navigator. Having Lady Luck on your side is also quite helpful!

The 2016 Great Race began in San Rafael, CA and finished in Moline, IL. It was a nine-day journey that covered nearly 2,500 miles, sto...pping in 19 different cities in 7 different states.

The D&W Salvage car (#83) piloted by the Bad Ass Boys from Bad Axe, won 1st place in the Sportsmen Division and finished 6th place overall with a score of 1:15.90 (1 minute 15.90 seconds off a perfect time), earning 6 Aces (perfect times) along the way.

Congratulations on a job well done!!!!

Our prices are not published because . . .

Scrap metal prices fluctuate depending upon supply, demand, and even world events. As a result, prices can change frequently. Generally we update our prices once a month, at the beginning of the month; however, there are occasions when prices are changed more frequently.

Prices posted at our facility, at the actual time of sale, govern.


Car bodies, motor blocks, sheet metal, long steel and short steel are easily identifiable to the general public. The same cannot be said about other materials, especially those in the non-ferrous category. For example: You may think that you have #1 Copper when in reality it could be #2 Copper, aluminum, or something completely different.

We also customize pricing for commercial/industrial sellers, and those having a large quantity of material.

For the above stated reasons, and to prevent any misunderstanding, we ask that you call for prices.

Remember, actual inspection of your material by our knowledgeable staff is the best option to ensure proper identification and the most accurate pricing.
