VIDEO AND PICTURES: Bargain machinery to be had from salvage yard (Wreckers Yard special)

Looking for a bargain? Curious to know where all that ‘Wreckers Yard’ machinery ends up when the flames finally go out? Emily Padfield visited Hewitt International, the salvage company used by the NFU Mutual.


Walking round Hewitt’s salvage yard is like being a small child in Hamley’s toy shop – you don’t know where to start.

Combines, balers, fertiliser spreaders, Mitsubushi Evo IVs, you name it, it’s there. There are even one or two Bentleys parked up amid the Nissans.
