Chartered Surveyors Eddisons has opened a new auction centre in Bradford.
The 15,000 sq ft premises will provide a base from where the firm can store and prepare assets from bailiffs, insolvency practitioners and private clients, for sale through its on-line auction site.
Jason Pinder Head of Machinery and Business Assets for Eddisons: ‘We have seen a major increase in the amount of plant, equipment and stock we are being asked to dispose of and the centre allows us to store and market this efficiently on a clients’ behalf.
‘Initially we will hold a sale every two weeks. Viewing will always take place on a Tuesday with bids being accepted on the internet during Wednesday when the auction closes.’
Since opening in January, the auction centre has carried out a number of large sales which have raised in excess of £200,000 for clients.
Disposals have covered trucks, cars, Mercedes commercial vehicle spares, fork lift trucks and equestrian products.
Sales planned over the next few weeks include over 100 new fireplaces, office equipment and waste paper bailers. There will also be a sale of prestigious cars, including a 2011 Porsche Panamera 4S.
Mr Pinder said ‘We can dispose of any type of asset and are very happy to handle both small and large numbers of items. Ultimately it is an enhanced service for our clients which caters for their specific requirements.’
The on-line auctions take place on the firm’s website and enquiries from interested vendors can be made on 0845 130 3332 or by completing the form here.
