Asset Sales for the Public Sector

Our Expertise

Our experts specialise in helping local authorities, government departments and financial institutions realise value from high value assets. Through our market knowledge and expertise, we help you realise the optimal selling price.

Whether you are a city council looking to dispose of plant and machinery, a public body restructuring its facilities or a government department disposing of surplus equipment, we can help. Our experience ensures that your assets are marketed appropriately to interested buyers. We sell your redundant and surplus assets quickly and effectively.

Whether you are looking to maximise the sale value or minimise sale timescales, our sales and auctions will ensure you realise the best price. With over 100,000 registered buyers, we have a track record of skillfully negotiating many complex, high value sales. Our asset auctions are promoted across the globe:  last year we sold over 50,000 lots to buyers in over 70 countries.

We have experience across a wide range of assets including:

  • Machinery and Equipment
  • Vehicles and Heavy Plant
  • Engineering and tools
  • Manufacturing assets
  • Healthcare equipment

Whether you are looking to dispose of individual high value and specialist industrial assets, entire manufacturing facilities or redundant equipment, we can help. Our experience means your assets are marketed appropriately right across the industrial sector.

Our Capability

Operating across all sectors, our asset sales services include:

Online Auctions – sell in the shortest possible time

A popular and trusted method for selling assets quickly, our online auctions have a global reach and low cost. Our online platform auctions consumer goods, electrical items, commercial vehicles, industrial plant equipment or anything else. Each lot is sold individually to the highest bidder in an efficient end to end process.


Marketed Sale - obtain the maximum possible price

For niche, complex or high value assets (where markets and buyers are limited) our expert negotiators have the market insight to sell your asset at the highest possible price. Sometimes referred to as a private treaty sale, this method involves fixing a guide sale price and negotiating on an individual basis with interested parties.

Tender sale – obtain a minimum price in a set timescale

Specialist assets in a limited market may be suitable for a tender sale. This is a type of auction where an asset is sold with a deadline date for bids. Interested parties have until that date to submit their best offer, without having seen anyone else’s bidding activity.

“Whether through expert negotiation, market knowledge or technological solutions, our sole focus is on obtaining the best possible price for our clients.”
