Machinery sale: Strong trading day at Thainstone’s plant, machinery and equipment sale

Thainstone’s recent plant, machinery and equipment sale, with 83% of the 3,554 lots sold, attracted more than 2,000 bidders, including a variety of buyers from across the UK and Ireland flocking to the centre at the weekend (16/04/16).

Mark Barrack, head of specialist auctions at ANM Group, said: “The auction continues to grow in popularity amongst buyers and sellers with a steady increase in entries and lots sold on the day. Due to favourable currency exchange rates, our online bidding system, i-bidder, experienced a surge in activity from Europe, as well as an increased number of buyers from Ireland.”

 

The sale of farm-consigned machinery and implements was notable, said Mr Barrack. A 20ft Herbst cattle trailer sold for £5,300; a Claas Volto tedder realised £5,000; and a Kinbroom flat trailer achieved £3,300.

 

Alan Hutcheon, auctions operations manager at Aberdeen and Northern Marts, said: “The auction experienced a strong trade with lots selling quickly as buyers benefited from a diverse range of good quality of plant, machinery and equipment available.”

 

The next plant, machinery and equipment sale, which takes place eight times a year, is scheduled for Saturday 21st May from 9am at Thainstone Centre, Inverurie.

 

For entries, contact Alan Hutcheon for tractors and implements on 01467 623711 or Mark Barrack for vehicles, 4x4s, plant and machinery on 01467 623754.
