Grab yourself a fire engine at Lifford
IF you fancy becoming the proud owner of a fire engine, vintage steel roller or snow plough get along to Lifford where Donegal County Council are flogging a collection of obsolete equipment until Friday.
The Council’s Roads and Transportation Directorate is inviting tenders for a motley range of old vehicles at its Machinery Yard just across the Foyle from Strabane.
Amongst the items on the catalogue are six fire engines (including Mercedes, Bedfords and Fords), three Aveling Barford vintage steel rollers (1932 and 1948), snowploughs, gritters, a Zetor tractor, six lorries, six pick-ups, seven vans and a Hyster forklift.
Tenders must be submitted to the County Secretary’s Office, Donegal County Council, County House, Lifford, no later than noon on Friday, September 21.
The Council warns that “any price offered or accepted is to be in respect of the LOT in its present state including all materials on or in the vehicle – the Council will not carry out any further work on the LOT nor will the Council provided any assistance in lifting loading or transporting the LOT once same has been purchased.”
And if anybody wants to put any of the vehicles on the road, however, they will need to sort out their red tape first.
“Scrapped Vehicle back on the road - If a vehicle which has been declared scrap to Motor Tax prior to the introduction of the End of Life Regulations, and is sold as scrap, is being requested to be put back on the road, the applicant must submit, to the Motor Tax Office, an Insurance Assessors report which conforms to the requirements of the Construction, Equipment and Use Regulations (S.I. 190 of 1963),” the Council states.
