The link did work but I guess that itís been taken down which possibly confirms that the ad was a bit dodgy. As has been suggested, Carillionís vans will either be disposed of by the liquidator or, if on lease, claimed back by the lease company. Either way there will be a good few used vans back in circulation.
One owner, many drivers!!

well this should make for interesting listening ....

"Sheikhs push for hearing to rebut Carillion's non-payment allegations .... The Qatari royal family wants to testify to a UK parliamentary committee to defend their reputation after Carillion executives blamed them for the companyís collapse ........Msheireb Properties insists that money was handed over in 2017 and disputed Carillionís claims.
It denies being a cause of Carillion's liquidation. .......
In a statement, the Qatar company said:
ďDespite ongoing project delay, Msheireb Properties continued to pay Carillion. However, Carillion did not pass these funds onto its supply chain, leaving over 40 subcontractors unpaid."
"

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...ns-allegations

and elsewhere the 'dominoes' are looking 'shaky' ......

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...-balance-sheet

" Galliford Try is planning to raise £150m of new equity capital to withstand the burden left on it by Carillionís collapse. "


http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...orate-failures

" Rising costs raise prospect of further corporate failures "

so here's yet another slice of the UK PLC gone to Canada

" Canadian firm BGIS has agreed a deal to acquire a large slice of Carillionís facilities management contracts in the UK. "

the Canadian Teacher's pension fund already holds a huge interest in the UK Lottery

and ..... " Schal International Management and Carillion Professional Services are among 10 more Carillion subsidiaries put into liquidation. "

dominoes starting to topple again

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...ies-liquidated

plus.....

" At least one major shareholder of Carillion was contemplating legal action before the contractorís demise while others were already ďfleeing for the hillsĒ. "

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...-for-the-hills

" MPs conducting an inquiry into the collapse of Carillion wrote to major shareholders in Carillion three weeks ago, with questions on their interaction with the company and the timing and reason of any share disposals. The responses have now been published "

that ought to cause a few more raised eyebrows and awkward questions for the directors inquisition before Parliament's committees, when they have them back before them

" MPs seek more answers from Carillion directors ...... The MPs have now written to them, and numerous other organisation, pressing for further details. "
