AbbeyCarsWanted.com has become the latest business to join Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s roundabout scheme which allows companies to raise the profile of their business while also enabling the Council to smarten up the Borough’s roundabouts. 

The recently opened business has sponsored the roundabout at Manse Road and Prince Charles Way in Newtownabbey  and provides a vehicle collection service throughout Newtownabbey, Greater Belfast, North Down and County Antrim. AbbeyCarsWanted.com collect scrap cars, MOT failures, classic cars and surplus MOT’d vehicles and pay cash for each car collected.

Speaking about the Council’s roundabout scheme, the Mayor, Councillor Thomas Hogg commented:   “Thousands of motorists pass our roundabouts daily and this makes them prime locations for advertising to a large number of people in a unique and cost-effective way. I’m delighted that AbbeyCarsWanted.com are involved in the scheme, as not only are they advertising their business but they are also improving the standard of our roundabouts as well. Participation in this scheme will bring benefits to the local community and to the businesses themselves.”

Sponsoring one of the Council’s roundabouts can promote your presence in the community whilst also making a positive contribution to the area. This kind of partnership can help maintain a positive brand image, showing residents and visitors alike that you care about the local environment. And with funding going directly towards maintaining the roundabout you sponsor, you can be sure your money is being used wisely.

If your company or organisation is interested in roundabout sponsorship, please contact Business Development Administrator, Andrea Fothergill on telephone 028 9034 0042 or email [email protected].
