    Rear bumper just broke, need to find a good breakers

    Driving into a Harvester car park and they had a lovely big speed bump, went over at about 2MPH and it bloody cracked my rear bumper, so now the right hand side has a huge piece missing that fell off due to having a car full of people.

    Need to find a good breakers/scrap yard near me that I can get a rear bumper from that wont cost the earth.

    Im located in Croydon, Surrey but can travel of course.



    Cheers,


    Steve

    Write to Mitchells & Butlers PLC and ask them to cover the cost of your broken bumper.

    The worst case scenario is you lose the cost of a stamp. However, if it is a well written, professional looking letter, you may find the company will offer you something..... let them know you are prepared to purchase a second hand bumper and fit it yourself. They will like that, kind of sharing the blame.... even if they only give you £50 of Harvester Vouchers, that's better than nothing.

    Oh, M&B own Harvester.

    Also, I cant seem to find a postal address for them...only an online form, and that doesnt scream professional.
