Nissan micra red 1.0 3 door hatch back petrol 2003 model
This Renault Clio 16v in silver has a 1.2 litre engine and a totally smashed side. This 3 door hatchback runs on glorious petrol and is here to be crushed at our car salvage yard!
We’re feeling a little famous recently, thanks to the kind folks at The Bolton News! Our Christmas party managed to get itself a little bit of a mention in Friday’s edition. Fortunately they managed to miss out the embarassing details or the karaoke shenanigans (which it doesn’t seem I’ll ever live down!).. And thanks to the wonders of The Internet, we’re able to reproduce this previously print-only snippet in digital format – isn’t technology wonderful?
This white Citroën Berlingo van has been in a bit of a nasty accident, it seems, hence it winding up at our world-famous scrap metal yard! While the front might be a mess the innards are pretty good, and with a 1.9 litre engine we’re sure it’ll have all the oomph you need to drag your wares about. Unfortunately it’s here for scrap, not for sale, but if you’ve got a Berlingo panel van and you’re looking for bits for it, head on down and see what we’ve got!
This 2009 Nissan Almera in red has a 1.4 litre engine, 5 doors, and is a hatchback. Its window is pretty mucky but we’ve got just the tools for that – kitchen towels!
Our gaffer Terry has been quoted in The Bolton News in relation to the ongoing problem of scrap metal theft!
Scrapyards put in picture in bid to stop metal thefts
SCRAPYARDS in Bolton will be given photographs of known criminals in the latest bid to stop thieves who strip metal from homes, businesses and churches.
The announcement comes as police carried out another series of visits to scrap dealers in Bolton yesterday to make sure they are not buying stolen metal.
Police in the town have been sharing information about crime with scrapyards, including pictures of commonly stolen cable types and information about recent thefts. Now the arrangement is to be taken to the next step when police will give photographs of convicted metal thieves to merchants so they can easily identify them.
Insp Wayne Readfern, who is leading the crackdown, said: “We want to stop the thefts, and one of the ways we can do that is to share information.”
Metal merchants welcomed the scheme, saying it would help them spot the dodgy dealers. Gary Ogden, one of the owners of PG Metals in Derbyshire Street, Bolton, said: “We can all help each other — if it knocks down metal theft it will be better for us. We don’t want these people coming in.”
Metro Salvage owner Terry Walker said: “It’s better to keep in front of your game and be in front of the criminals, and it’s businesses like us who can help in achieving that.”
Yesterday a boss at SC Chadwick and Sons in Oakenbottom Road, Breightmet, was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods after four bin bags full of cable belonging to BT, and a further 5kg of stripped BT cable, were found at the premises.
The man was last night being quizzed by officers.
In total 16 scrapyards across Greater Manchester were visited by police yesterday, resulting in 13 arrests.
