Smith Steel clears the way

ALL steel was cleared at a successful clearing sale at Pound Creek last Friday.

After 40 years of operation, Smith Steel closed recently and all left over stock and items were auctioned.

There was plenty of interest, with more than 300 people registering on the day.

The auction kicked off at 10am and SEJ agents were still on deck until around 4.30pm.

“It was a great turn out. There were plenty of interested buyers,” vendor Neil Smith said.

All steel products sold well on the day at varying prices from $100 to $800.

As well as steel, there were also large quantities of screws and rivets, galvanised pipe, various sheets of mesh, storage racks and shelving, firefighting pumps, trailers, old farm gates, kennels and tyres, provided by both Smith Steel and outside vendors.

Although Smith Steel has ceased trading, steel products will still be sold by McRae Engineering in Meeniyan.

Anything previously sold at Smith Steel – including roofing iron, iron guttering, flashing and accessories, Colorbond roofing, galvanised steel, structural steel and beams – can be picked up in Meeniyan.

McRae Engineering will facilitate deliveries to customers.
