1200 bidders vie to secure the pick of the 600+ quality lots on offer at Euro Auctions latest event. 

Euro Auctions, the leading international auctioneers of used industrial plant, construction machinery and agricultural equipment, has seen a more than threefold increase in bidder registrations over the past year for its growingly popular Brisbane sale. The recent one-day auction on 21st June pulled together consignments from across the region and attracted around 1200 bidders; one in ten of whom secured lots, and there were 40 first time buyers.

“Our Brisbane auction attracts bidders from right across the Asia-Pacific region and even further afield with over 1000 buyers now regularly registering interest and joining each of our sales via the internet,” stated Paul Haynes, Euro Auctions’ Territory Manager for NSW. “With over 600 quality used and ‘as new’ lots going under the hammer at this particular sale there was something for everyone. And with no reserves, some real bargains were on offer.”

Some 50 vendors consigned lots to this sale which included an extensive range of heavy plant and agricultural machinery ranging from a new Terex Finlay 883+ to well used but still perfectly serviceable Volvo L250G.  The final hammer total for this sale was almost $7m and the sale of over half of all lots were completed online.

Paul Haynes continued: “Demand for quality used equipment is definitely on the up here in Australia and the yearly growth trend Euro Auctions has experienced at all its global sites, continues here. Global demand for new equipment is on the rise which is having a really positive knock-on impact on demand for quality used equipment.  Strong prices and the expanding number of vendors consigning equipment for inclusion in our upcoming auctions means bidders are ever keen to participate in our auctions.”
