Demand rises at Thainstone’s Plant, Machinery and Equipment Sale

A plant, machinery and equipment sale – with 82% of the 3,000 lots sold - attracted more than 2,000 bidders, including a variety of buyers from across the UK and Ireland flocking to Thainstone Centre at the weekend.
 
The online bidding system, i-bidder.com, also featured strongly within the plant, vehicles and lorries sections with online buyers from throughout the UK and Europe showing interest.
 
The top price for the day came from a Volvo A25D 6x6 Dump Truck (2005) which sold for £68,000; this was followed by a Volvo EC360C Slew Excavator (2008) which was purchased for £61,000. The 4x4 section was led by a Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab that sold for £11,500; in the Heavy Commercial’s category a Mercedes Benz Axor 8x4 Hooklift sold for £26,200; while the Trailer’s Caravans and Containers category was topped by a Dennison Tri Axle Timber Trailer which achieved £9,000.
 
Mark Barrack, Head of Specialist Auctions at ANM Group, said: “Despite a cold rainy day, the auction was a great success with a marked increase in entries in comparison to last year. This achievement serves as a testament to our team’s commitment to delivering value and tangible results to our customers.”
 
The sale of farm-consigned machinery and implements was also impressive with a KV 5F Rev Plough sold for £5,900; a Lemkin 5F Rev Plough realised £3,850; and a NC Dump Trailer making £3,300.
 
Alan Hutcheon, Auctions Operations Manager at Aberdeen and Northern Marts, said: “We are delighted with the results and pleased to see the rise in demand at this regular sales event. The auction of farm-consigned machinery and implements is proving popular amongst bidders as they benefit from the diverse range of lots on offer.”
 
The next plant, machinery and equipment sale – which takes place eight times a year – is scheduled for Saturday 16th April from 9am at Thainstone Centre, Inverurie and consignors are encouraged to advise of their entries as soon as possible in order to receive maximum exposure to potential buyers.
