Salvage Yard Inspections

Salvage Yard

Ohio Revised Code requires that the county sheriff inspect all salvage and towing operations within their jurisdiction annually. The major reason for inspecting these facilities is to locate the registered vehicle owners and process “unclaimed” vehicles towed by law enforcement agencies and private property owners.

The Sheriff’s Office tries to locate the rightful owners in a timely manner. If no owner can be found or will not come forward, we, through the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, obtain an affidavit and the salvage/tow yards can obtain a new title to the vehicle in question.
