Under the hammer

Nearly 1,600 pieces of exceptional construction and agricultural machinery went under the hammer on 3rd & 4th October – with a hammer total of £11,893,950

Euro Auctions predicted great interest in this one-off retirement sale and the crowds came in their thousands, with massive local support and attendance on the viewing days, as well as the sales days of the 3rd and 4th October.

Euro Auctions, valuer and auctioneers for WH Bond, executed a one-off sale at their premises in Trerulefoot, Cornwall, with nearly 1,600 lots of agricultural machinery and construction plant being sold over two days, the majority of which were 2019, 2018, and 2017 models, with many unregistered items. The final hammer total for the sale was £11,893,950, with £4,714,940 being ‘online’ sales to many of whom were international buyers.

With most of the successful bids coming from the UK and Ireland, there was strong and successful bidding from the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Italy, such is the international reach that Euro Auctions has through loyal customers and international marketing.
