Dave Harcourt awarded the 2011 BVSF Combellack Award

This year the award was given for the outstanding contribution Dave has personally made to the British Salvage Industry and the on-going contribution that DH Systems has made to the member companies.

The BVSF was established at the instigation of motor insurers who required an industry representative body with which it could communicate on all matters affecting vehicle salvage.
