We’ve been alerted to a number of Catalytic Converter thefts in the local area. Catalysts are high value item on vehicles and have a correspondingly high value on the scrap metal market. The catalyst cell often includes precious metals such as Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium. Check out this story from the BBC.
Help protect your vehicle from catalyst theft by fitting Cat Clamp
Cat Clamp works by physically attaching the catalyst to chassis of your vehicle with up to seven loops of aircraft grade, braided steel wire. This slows the thief down to such an extent that they will ignore Cat Clamped vehicle in favour of easier pickings.
Costs for this clamp are around £150 inc vat + fitting.
Costs for replacement of OEM only catalysts, such as Mercedes Sprinter and Toyota Hilux are in the region £1200 + vat. That doesn’t include fitting, lost work from having the vehicle of the road, hire vehicle cost and increased insurance premiums.
Although it’s hard to believe, Replacement Service first opened it’s doors to the world on the 2nd of May 1963. We intend to mark this milestone in the company’s history by inviting all our established and valued customers to a bbq and hog roast, here on the premises. They’ll be plenty of free food, drink, music and entertainment. Plus, the opportunity to meet the management and staff of Replacement Service (you lucky, lucky people) in a sunny and convivial environment.

Sometimes there’s no harm in blowing your own trumpet. At Replacement Service we’re proud of the things that make us different. We believe it’s the differences that keep people coming back to us. With that in mind, here are just a few reasons why people deal with us over the competition.
A truly independent service that is wholly customer focused.
A consistently personal service that means you speak to the people you know.
Owner Directors on premises to help with any issues that may arise.
The most experienced staff to handle your enquiries.
The right part first time saving “ramp down time”.
A service that goes the extra mile: “Suspended Documents” allow you to take parts for a vehicle and pay us later when funds allow. Collection and delivery of parts from other suppliers e.g. Main Dealers to assist the repair. Sourcing unusual parts from unconventional suppliers like Ebay or vintage specialists.
The best delivery service in town.
We work the same hours you do so can offer our service ”all of the day” not just till 4:30pm.
A sympathetic and flexible supplier that is happy to help with cash flow issues.
An honest supplier that won’t send the wrong part just to buy some time.
Consistent Pricing that means you pay the same price until we see a price increase.
A clear pricing policy that differentiates between real “Trade customers” and “Retail”.
A local supplier for your local business:
Independently owned – Not Venture Capital Co owned like so many of the rest.
Your patronage generates money that stays in Huddersfield not sent overseas to USA or Asia.
Fighting to remain independent for your choice.
Part of something bigger:
As a member of the biggest trading group in the UK we enjoy some of the keenest pricing on QUALITY brands which make our parts competitive. Don’t believe what other Parts Suppliers Reps tell you. We are competitive on like for like product. Ring us to put them to the test.
As part of the complete service our trading group offers, we can hook you up with preferential deals on “added value services” like insurance, IT, training and card services with further support on overalls and laundry services.
Winter weather is forecast from this Thursday. Don’t get caught out by a frosty windscreen on the way to work. Just pop this neat package of de-icer, concentrated screenwash, an ice scraper and rubberised gloves in your boot.
