The Steel Industry Downfall- How This Affects Us The steel industry has hit the headlines this week again, but not for the right reasons. The UK steel industry has taken a massive hit, with Tata steel creating over a thousand job losses at their Welsh plant this month. The BBC said ‘The steel industry says it has been hit by a combination of factors: the strength of the pound, relatively high electricity prices, the extra cost of climate change policies and competition from China- there have been allegations that Chinese steel is being sold in the UK at unrealistically low prices.’ Before the economic crash of 2006, the steel industry was booming. We were paying over £150 per tonne. However, in the last 10 years there has been a steady decline and steel prices have failed to climb back up. Before this, we would buy any scrap car for cash, regardless of its condition, make or model. The scrap a car Bolton industry was in the best position.

Flood Damaged Cars Cumbria With the backlash of Storm Desmond, Cumbria has been battered by floods. Homes and property, including cars have been severely flood damaged, and it’s going to cost the people of Cumbria and the insurance companies thousands to get everything back to normal.

rts awards
The Scrappers At The RTS Awards So on Saturday night Lyndsay and Terry headed to the Hilton Deansgate Manchester for The Royal Television Society Awards North West, hosted by Ted Robbins, as Scrappers had been nominated for Best Factual Series. In our category, there was stiff competition in Children’s Hospital: The Chaplains, Sacred Rivers with Simon Reeve and The Kids Hospital at Christmas, and the event was awash with stars from the small screen. More than 450 of the very best of North West entertainment were there, such as Peter Kay, Jason Manford and Kym Marsh, to name but a few, and it was a very glamorous event. Winners! Even though the team put a lot of hard work in, during the filming of series one and two, we never thought in our wildest dreams that we had a chance of winning… but we did! It’s fantastic to see our work and the work of our Director Pip Banyard, crew and Producers be recognised by such a prestigious awarding body. What’s more, it was the best birthday present for Lyndsay, who was celebrating her birthday that day.

scrap metal prices
Scrap Prices Tumble For The 4th Month In A Row For the fourth month in a row, the scrap metal prices in the UK took a tumble in October and unfortunately the November forecast isn’t looking much better. Metal Bulletin said ‘UK domestic scrap prices saw a £30 ($46) per tonne downward revision in October under pressure from a fall in international scrap prices. This was the fourth month in a row when UK market prices have fallen, and most market participants still agreed that prices have not found a floor yet. "There is no reason to expect any positive change," The Scrap Price Bulletin added to this, ‘Most opinions heading into early November are that prices could drop more in the 5-10 percent range.' We Pay More Than Scrap Value On Cars For Export This is the lowest the scrap metal has been since before 2008, and therefore many scrap yards are refusing to pay customers for their cars, instead offering only collection. Obviously as the North West’s leading scrap yard, this isn’t the best news to hear, but our customers should fear not, as this means that we’ll be looking to buy more cars to export! We export to many countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Poland, Malta and Lebanon, and each exporter has their [.
