Euro Auctions, the UK’s leading auctioneers of industrial plant, construction machinery and agricultural equipment, is currently putting final plans together for the next Auction sale in Leeds – on between 6th to 8th April – and is looking to build on the success of the January Leeds sale that saw over 4900 lots go under the hammer, achieving a total sale price of almost £30 million.

With 4000 plus lots already assigned, the Leeds auction (6th to 8th April) should again prove popular with bidders in the UK, from across Europe and globally; building on earlier successes.

A key attraction at this auction is another consignment of 50 plus near new, low hours, 2013-15, T6 and T7 tractors direct from the New Holland dealer network. The success of the last auction has also brought some major John Deere dealers to consign a selection of 25 plus John Deere tractors for the first time. Other agricultural stock comprising a large inventory of telehandlers, dump trailers, low loaders and tillage equipment, all from popular manufacturers should also appeal to a broad cross-section of potential buyers looking to secure a bargain.

There will also be a broad selection of good condition industrial plant and construction machinery that bidders have come to expect at any Euro Auctions event and these range from good condition mini diggers and dumpers through to several large excavators including a 40-ton CAT 345CL and a CX460LC machine, with both demolition and digger attachments.

Several unusual lots will also be sold on the day but will not be available to view due to their sheer size. One is a 2013 double girder portal crane, currently located in Hertfordshire. Another is a massive tracked pedestal excavator which has been in use at Liverpool docks.

“With an upsurge in demand for equipment, particularly from across Europe as sterling softens, we expect real interest from the global community at this Leeds sale,” comments Jonnie Keys, General Manager of Euro Auctions.

“The diversifying range of quality, reliable and affordable equipment now coming under the hammer also means we are attracting many first time bidders from other market sectors as they look to capitalise on some great deals. The UK is still seen as one of the stronger global economies with lots of construction machine purchases leading to good supply used equipment.”

He continued: “We are also delighted that the New Holland dealer network has chosen to build on our earlier success and has instructed Euro Auctions to manage the sale of another major consignment of stock at our Leeds sale in April.

“We are also seeing increased interest from other manufacturers and dealers wanting to consign lots to us; including 25 plus John Deere tractors and a host of other agri equipment for the forthcoming auction. Being able to secure and sell such a range of equipment means that we attract more bidders to each event, giving them a real choice of what’s available and sellers typically achieve stronger hammer prices – so it’s a win/win situation.”

In addition to the auction at Leeds on 6-8th April, other upcoming Euro Auctions sales comprise: Dromore in Northern Ireland on 22-23rd April; Dormagen in Germany on 28- 29th April; Brisbane, Australia on 19th May; and Zaragoza in Spain on 24th May.
