Vehicles and construction equipment are included in wide array for two-day auction
Instructed by liquidators, financial institutions and fleet managers, WH Auctioneers will hold a massive two-day auction of vehicles, construction equipment and a diversity of other goods on October 30 and on October 31 at its auction yards in Joburg and Cape Town.
“There will be more than 475 lots on offer at the combined auctions,” says the auction company’s Martin Dibowitz.
The auction will begin in Joburg, with upward of 300 lots available, Dibowitz says.
“Offerings on day one will include a fleet of 2017 and 2014 Mercedes Benz Axor horses and side-tipping trailers. In addition, there will be a large selection of trucks, including water tankers, craned drop-sides, tippers and volume bodies.
“On the construction side, more than 10 excavators will go under the hammer, ranging from a massive 70-ton Volvo through to a number of Komatsu 20-tonners. An unprecedented eight Caterpillar 950H wheel loaders will be flanked by two Caterpillar 966Hs and a Komatsu 480.
With 10 late-model digger loaders also available, clients will be spoiled for choice.
“Perhaps the most impressive lot of the day will be the late-model Liebherr 200-ton all-terrain crane, which is also expected to be the most expensive lot of the day,” says Dibowitz.
The Cape Town auction, scheduled for day two, will include more than 175 lots.
“In addition to a large number of earthmoving, construction and trucking lots for sale, the auction will offer a wide selection of small plant hire equipment from a liquidated plant hire company, and almost new refrigeration and display equipment from a liquidated confectionery outlet,” he says.
“Added to these, about 50 late-model, bank-owned executive vehicles will be on auction, including a fleet of low-mileage 2017 Mercedes Benz Vitos.”
Dibowitz says WH Auctioneers’ customised webcast system will be available for both auctions, allowing buyers who are not able to attend these events in person to bid online in real time.
The Joburg auction will be held at 10.30am on October 30 at 578 16th Road, Midrand.
The Cape Town auction will take place at 10.30am on on October 30 at 17 Dacres Avenue, Epping 2.
The items to be sold may be viewed on the day prior to each auction.
WH Auctioneers’ staff will be on hand at both auction venues to assist buyers.
