Park Village Auctions will hold a massive vehicle sale comprising large fleet trucks and trailers, as well as accident damaged and salvaged vehicles, according to the firm’s LeRoy Augustyn, who says this one is not be missed.
The assets stem from a national snack food manufacturing concern, Carnival Foods (Pty) Ltd, and is under the auspices of PVA’s business rescue division, which specialises in selling businesses experiencing difficulties.
Said Augustyn: “Most [of these] businesses are simply in need of a capital injection or restructuring to continue operating. In this case, the former applies, and we are confident an auction of this scale will attract the bids required to realise the business rescue practitioner’s objectives.
“The sale represents an excellent opportunity for highway and delivery fleet operators to expand their fleets inexpensively, and there is ample opportunity for workshop owners, panel beaters, and parts vendors to snap-up incredible deals.”
Truck tractors to be sold include a fleet of 2008 and 2011 Freightliners Argosy 440; 2003 Nissan UD290; 2002 Iveco Eurotrakker; and 2008 Toyota Dyna 7-145.

Assorted Henred Fruehauf, Knight Bodies, Afrit, top trailers, UBT, Kearneys and SA Truck Bodies (curtain side), Volume Body trailers and Super Link trailers will be on the block as well.
