Get PP groups low cost hi quality screws & fixings

Cabinz CIC is a not for profit social enterprise in N. Wales , near Chester UK.
We sell & donate low cost , high quality new screws & fixings from split boxes, returns & clearance stock.

Our manufacturer suppliers are offering us much more than we can handle ourselves .
So we are looking to offer these to other creative groups of community groups both in Uk & EU initially. As it is a 500 kg crate we suggest groups club together’

Screw sorting has been used as therapy by mens sheds & autistic charities with us  (see crate pics at link )
Idea for sorting a mixed bucket of screws into smaller pots as relaxation & therapy that can then be used for craft / DIY by community groups http://WWW.cabinznet.blogspot.com/2018/06/idea-for-sorting-mixed-bucket-of-screws.html?q=SCREWS

We offer a plywood crate of approx. 500 kg that we pay £170 for inc vat & shipping to a Uk address. We charge £50 on top of this  to cover our labour costs, arranging delivery / storage of the crate .

Be aware that if these fixings were boxed and not mixed, they would cost many thousands of ££ pounds .

We have been offered £70 by a scrapyard for 500 kg , which shows the low cost they are being sold for at £220 to uk groups

We estimate shipping a crate to the Eu will be approx £170 – £200 + which needs to be added to this  £220

This a great opportunity to supply your groups with fixing for future use. We may consider shipping smaller quanitities

if interested, please contact us through the precious-plastic message system.

Edit: due to several enquiries about smaller quantities :

We can supply smaller quantites as samples, of which 24kg is a cheap p+ postage weight at £15.

These wil be charges at £1.50 a kg , so a 24 kg parcel will cost £36 + £15 = £51 Such heavy parcels require fixings to.be contained within a plastic tub inside a cardboard box.

The contents of the crate is random, but may include mostly common sizes of general building / diy fixings, such as  :
Bolts
Thunder / Lightning Bolts Expanding Bo;ts / AncherboltsCoach Bolts Hex Head Bolts  Washers Nuts

Screws  such as:Collated Screws (drywall & self tappers) Single drywall Wood Screws (inc Timco advanced design) Coach Screws Decking Screws Hex Head Timber Screws Roofing Screws with rubber washersSelf tapping Screws Frame Fixings Hammer Ins Stainless Steel Screws Chipboard Screws

We have been successfully selling screws & fixings for over a year now, selling to local contractors, diy’ers, community groups & donating to men in shed  and other groups. We have also sold successfully at local markets & car boot sales
