Lucky speedy today....Poor old fellow had to vacate a rental, looked he had been there for years, and gathered a lot of stuff. Rentals are hard for older and young people... I don't know the answer..
Both 4 stroke.
And a case of wine, but it may have gone through the flood, so I'm hesitating on that one.....
After the flood, Dan Murphys put everything in containers and took them somewhere and ran bulldozers over them.......

Nice Masport. Use the wine as parts cleaner. Make sure you rinse it you'll get a tipsy mower.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

I bet after the floods when the store managers heard that was happening they emptied out all the single malt scotch, bourbon and cognac and pilfered the contents away for themselves haha

The major concern for a mob like Dan Murphy’s would be that faecal or other contaminants are on the bottles. If someone drinks from the bottle and gets sick then the seller is liable for prosecution and suffers huge reputational damage.

Flooding brings all sorts of contamination out including the contents of our sewers, chemicals that were in containers that get washed away and a host of things that we’d all normally prefer remained buried. There are some very nasty incidents and illnesses that have occurred in communities following floods, one of the many reasons authorities advise people not to venture into flood waters.

I grew up in what was then a flood prone area and we’d get horror stories related to us at school in a bid to keep us out of the water.

Another thing I'm guessing is there is a lot of tax to be paid so it they destroy it under supervision they don't have to pay the tax/duty

There must be that component to it and a company that large backed up by an even larger Woolworths can absorb it out of a few outlets.

I wonder what independents do?

Tax probably is a component to it, insurance being another. Like when they finished one of the mad max movies in the 80s and warner bros (or whoever) sent a lawyer to watch the cars get crushed in a compactor to ensure they were destroyed and no vicarious liability would go on them.


But regarding the alcohol, never underestimate the cunning when there is no electricity and the security cameras are off. Either they emptied the bottles into other containers and smashed the bottles, or refilled them with water or (if the windows went out) all of it just went down the river never to be seen again.

Not saying a lot of grog wasn't squashed, but I bet a lot of the expensive liqueurs and 20 year old scotch that went through the floods is still out there one way or another
