How do I claim an impounded vehicle?

The Abandoned Vehicle Unit release cars Monday thru Friday between the hours of:9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. 

Only the titled owner will be able to reclaim the vehicle. 

The titled owner must appear with the title, identification and form of payment (call ahead to confirm amount) and their identification during the above hours at the front lobby of the Town of Babylon Municipal Building at North Amityville, located at 456 Albany Avenue in Amityville. 

If the owner of the vehicle is a corporation, only an Officer of the Corporation can reclaim a vehicle and must present proof of relationship to the corporation such as corporate books, tax return or state incorporation papers. 

If the reclaimed vehicle is not registered, it must be towed from the impound by a Babylon licensed town truck. We will provide a current list of approved companies. Tow driver will meet the owner at the Department of Public Works impound lot located at 1023 N. Indiana Avenue in Lindenhurst after the paperwork is complete and fee paid. 

Vehicle owner will be handed two copies of the release form. One copy for their records, and one to give to the DPW employee releasing the vehicle at the impound.
