Transport Overview

For clients who cannot access a transport fleet to relocate their stock or asset holdings, John Pye Auctions offers a UK transport network service.

This approved supplier fleet ranges from:

  • vans and Luton sized cargo trucks
  • 40ft curtain sider and box trailers, single and multi-deckers, for retail stock collections
  • recovery trucks for private and commercial vehicles
  • flatbeds with Hi-Abs for heavy plant and machinery
  • specialist trailers for marine vessels

We manage these transport services for a range of UK household names across our John Pye Retail, Vehicles, Business Assets and Luxury Assets trading departments, with transport managed across the breadth of the UK from our Scottish hub to our sites in the South West, as well overseas specialist projects.

Our vetted suppliers have worked in partnership with us for over 10 years, providing a long term robust tried and tested supply chain, helping to underpin our national operations, relocating over 12,000 vehicles and over 4,800 x 40ft trailer collections per annum.

Transport is provided either branded with John Pye Auctions livery or, where instructions are case sensitive or contentious, undertaken with ‘white label’ vans, trucks or trailers.

We focus our efforts on reducing our environmental footprint and maximising cost effectiveness, both of which are inextricably linked, for our clients by engaging with environmentally responsible transport suppliers and tracking network activity and requirements to run back haul loads as much as possible.
