Daddy Scrap is a family-owned business that always treats their
customers like family! Big Daddy Scrap the brainchild of Mike
and Tammy Spatola. They have a long history in the automotive
and scrap metal industry. Mike and Tammy started their first business
at the age of 18 - a towing company called M&T Towing. Later,
they would sell out to go work for Mike's brother-in-law at A-Reliable
Auto Parts in Blue Island, IL. In 1998, Mike and Tammy purchased
Speedway Auto Parts at 551 E. Lincoln Highway in Chicago Heights,
IL and within the first two years changed the name to Speedway
Auto Parts & Wreckers and formed a self-serve auto parts yard
at this location known as U-Pull-It.
With multiple family members working with them - son Ken, son-in-law
Dan, daughter Tiffany, and son Mike III - they formed Big Daddy
Scrap in 2008. The scrap industry is what Mike found to be his
passion. So in 2013, Mike and Tammy sold Speedway Auto Parts &
Wreckers and U-Pull-It to LKQ Corporation. Now, Mike and Tammy
plan to dedicate 100% to Big Daddy Scrap.
Now with Mike and Tammy's daughter Tiffany and son Mike III, they
plan on building a new great facility for Big Daddy Scrap at 1111
Washington Street in Chicago Heights, IL 60411. Our main focus
will be to keep our great customer service - "Here We'll
Treat Ya Like Family"! This includes being the cleanest and
fastest scrap yard with the best prices around!
