Euro Auctions, one of Europe’s leading auctioneers of construction, quarrying, industrial plant and agricultural machinery, is preparing for its first Leeds UK auction of 2019.
More than 2,500 lots are already consigned for the two-day event being held 30 January – 1 February. Standout models include a 2015 Volvo A30G articulated dump truck. A full auction inventory is available at www.euroauctions.com
Euro Auctions’ October 2018 auction at its sale site just outside the city of Leeds in northern England was the company’s biggest ever - with over 4,800 lots going over the ramp and a total hammer of £42,515,535 (€47,035,400), an increase of 20% over the same sale in 2017. Global buyers hit another all-time high, with 59% of bidding being online. Buyers from 67 countries registered for the auction - with 70% of those countries buying during the sale.
Globally headquartered in Dromore, Northern Ireland, Euro Auctions is in the process of expanding to meet the increasing needs of its global customers, building Europe’s largest permanent auction facility at its Leeds site.
The new Euro Auctions’ development includes the construction of new workshops, office and main administration centre, auction arena and sales ramp, in addition to a 2380m² jet wash bay, which is again believed to be the largest in Europe.
The 45-acre extension to the existing yard brings the Leeds Euro Auctions’ site up to over 70 acres in total. The enlarged Leeds auction site is due to become fully operational in early 2019.
