Team Schweinfurt, this is Dave Luellwitz, Schweinfurt’s business and recreation division chief for MWR. The garrison staff and I are committed to making your move out of Schweinfurt as smooth as possible. That’s why we’ve made getting rid of your hoopty a whole lot easier. And it’s free!
We know that trying to get rid of your junker vehicle before moving to your next duty station can be a pain in the you know what. Typically, you just drop it off at the Auto Skills strip lot on Conn, and for $65 they’d take care of everything for you.
But starting May 1, 2013 the Auto Skills Center is offering a special POV turn-in opportunity to Soldiers leaving the community within 30 days. No cost. No hassle. No fuss.
To assist Soldiers during their clearing process, and to cut down on the numbers of abandoned vehicles in the garrison, Auto Skills has been authorized to waive the $65 turn-in fee charged to customers starting May 1, 2013.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Drive your vehicle to the Auto Skills center.
- Show official orders to the Auto Skills staff that your PCS is within the next 30 days.
- The Auto Skills staff will waive the fee. But don’t forget your orders!
- Auto Skills staff will provide you with the proper turn-in paperwork. Take this to the Vehicle Registration office and clear the POV from their record.
This is a great deal you probably won’t find anywhere else. What’s more is this will help us reduce the number of abandoned vehicles in Schweinfurt.
