John Pye Auctions Business Assets department has appraised, valued, marketed and sold rolling agriculture and construction plant for over 30 years, amounting to tens of millions of pound of industrial rolling assets.
Our monthly plant and machinery auctions were the first in the UK to transition from live traditional auctions held from a rostrum to online timed auctions, which opened our plant and machinery auctions up to a whole new market of end user buyers, over and above trade.
From mini diggers and dumpers to backhoe excavators, tractors and quarry trucks, authorised for disposal by a wide portfolio of clients ranging from finance houses, turnaround, restructuring and insolvency practitioners through to plant and machinery hire firms.
We have undertaken appraisals and valuations of plant across the UK and Europe. When a consortium of City of London metal traders and private finance investors were negotiating a deal to buy Europe’s biggest plant and machinery breaker’s yard, located in Spain, they contacted John Pye Auctions Business Assets team to undertake an on-site appraisal of the 43 acre storage site and valuation of over 7,000 items of rolling agricultural and construction plant.
Beyond valuations, swift site clearance and transport relocation is often the key priority when authorising and managing such assets for disposal to ensure security and integrity of such agricultural and construction plant.
John Pye Auctions Vehicles and Business Assets department have a long established approved panel of suppliers who can move any size of industrial asset from anywhere in the UK and do so for some of the biggest names in construction plant.
Furthermore, our UK network of more than 20 sites covering over 60 acres across England, Scotland and Wales ensures that John Pye Auctions provides clients with a regional outlet to keep transport costs competitive and assets secure, within sites overseen by manned security and 24/7 CCTV monitoring, all approved to UK Central Government Cabinet Office procurement standards for asset storage and disposal.APPRAISAL / CONSIGNMENT ENQUIRIES
