Euro Auctions sale of over 1,200 pieces of construction and agricultural machinery


WH Bond – Retirement sale of over 1,200 pieces of exceptional construction and agricultural machinery and equipment – dates announced – 3rd& 4thOctober

Euro Auctions predicts unprecedented interest in the upcoming sale of construction and agricultural machinery from WH Bond, which will include over 1,200 lots of well-maintained machines, including models from predominantly 2019, 2018, and 2017

Euro Auctions, is pleased to announce their appointment as valuer and auctioneers to manage the disposal of machinery and equipment on behalf of Cornwall based WH Bond and Sons Ltd. This family run business is one the leaders in the field in the West Country and has an exceptional inventory of stock that will go under the hammer on the 3rdand 4thOctober.

Due to market conditions, coupled with the uncertainty of how Brexit will affect the plant and machinery sectors, WH Bond has made the decision to retire the plant hire and agricultural machinery sales division of the business with immediate effect. 

David Betts, Euro Auctions ‘Territory Manager’ for the UK and manager of this sale comments, “With over 1,200 lots of quality equipment up for sale, this is one of the most eagerly awaited off-site sales of 2019. With predominantly 2019 to 2016 machines in the catalogue, that are in ‘like new’ condition, this sale will draw much attention from the buyers. The care and attention bestowed on each item for sale by WH Bond is evident and will ensure the line-up on sale day will be more than impressive. The newer, large ticket, items in the 1,200-machine line up puts estimates of the value of this two-day sale at £15 million.”

David Betts concludes “As well as the ‘big ticket’ items the general inventory includes the type of machinery, equipment and tools one would expect from a modern well-run plant and machinery hire and sales specialist in the construction and agricultural markets. In my opinion, after the regular Leeds sale, this is the one to attend in 2019.”
