Mark Barrack, Head of Thainstone Specialist Auctions, said: “We are delighted to see a large volume of lots entered with over 720 bidders joining the auction. The timed online auction of builders equipment leading up to the collective sale saw over 1,000 entries in this section alone. It is encouraging to see a rise in entries as we continue to see a steady demand for good quality second hand equipment across a range of business sectors. By reaching a diverse range of bidders via our online platform we are able to ensure that all goods are exposed to a comprehensive network of buyers and true value is achieved on the day”.

“We encourage businesses to contact our team to discuss marketing their surplus assets, as with continued demand it is a good time to move on underutilised equipment. Our team are available to discuss entries by contacting 01467 623770.”
