Euro Auction Leeds auction attracts buyers from 86 countries


Euro Auction, Leeds UK – latest auction attracts buyers from 86 countries with the biggest hammer of the year at £39 million

Again, the Euro Auctions UK site in Leeds proves it is Europe’s number one sales arena for the sale of construction machinery, agricultural equipment, and industrial plant, hosting the largest sale in the last 18 months with over 5,300 lots going over the ramp.

The hunger for good quality used equipment is still evident, as the third sale of 2021 at Euro Auctions, Leeds, proves again that this newly extended facility is without doubt the finest of its kind, attracting more vendors, more buyers and selling more equipment than any other auction facility of its kind in Europe.

Over 5,300 lots went under the hammer over the three days of the sale, from over 560 vendors from 26 countries, and whilst consignors from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, were evident at this sale, it was the home market that was centre stage, with 90% of vendors coming from the UK.  This popular sale always attracts new sellers with 15% of the register vendors selling for the first time. That said, floor bidders and general attendances were strong as this sale always attracts the crowd, Covid compliant of course.

Since Covid, Euro Auctions has been running its live auctions online and attracting progressively larger internet audiences with this sale being no different with 80% of all successful bids being conducted via the bidding platform on Euro Auctions website.

Whilst the number of bidder accounts remained solid over the previous sales of 2021 and 2020, floor bidders have increased with a relaxation of Covid rules and first-time registrations to bid at this sale were up by 15% and total bidders from 86 countries around the globe, such is the pull that this sale has internationally.

Top buyers by world region in the overall sale were as follows:

UK – 51%, Europe – 46%, Middle East – 1%, Africa – 1%, Rest of World – 1%.

Top bidders by country, as expected and in order were: UK, Republic of Ireland, Poland, Spain, Romania, The Netherlands, and Germany,

Jonnie Keys of Euro Auctions comments on the current market, “Since the advent of Covid we have seen a continued influx on new consignors and new registered bidders at our new Euro Auctions site in Leeds. New buyers and consignors like our simple process, with our staff really engaging with both buyers and sellers. In addition, in a time when more consignors are looking to turn iron into cash, they are putting their trust in Euro Auctions sell their equipment to get true market value. Buyers have been strong and evident at all sales, and of course without them we would not have an auction, so we thank them for their continued support.”
