In seemingly no time at all, Park Village Auctions (PVA) have secured a bevy of quality trucks, trailers, and yellow metal to go under the hammer on March 22.
This follows a hugely successful auction in which assets from a national haulage concern sold out in record time just over two weeks ago. Le Roy Augustyn says the attendance and prices fetched at their previous auction is evidence that the market recognises PVA as a trusted source of reliable, affordable used commercial vehicles.
Augustyn adds: “There is no doubt that the demand for low mileage, second-hand commercial vehicles is growing despite the forecasted improvements to the lending rate, the rand’s buoyancy and increases in the purchasing manager’s index.
“We saw this fi rst-hand at the end of February when we auctioned a fleet of long-haul road freight vehicles.
“We achieved fantastic prices which buyers reported as realistic and competitive.
“The auction was well attended, and the speed at which assets were sold is testimony to the fact that bidders know they can acquire quality vehicles stemming from bank repossessions and a variety of genuine liquidation matters.”
Under the banner of rigid trucks and truck tractors, bidders can expect to find assets from manufacturers such as Freightliner, Hino, International, Isuzu, Iveco, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi Trucks and trailers’ turn Fuso, Nissan, Scania, Tata, Toyota Dyna, Volvo and various MAN TGA and TGS models.
Trailers and earth-moving equipment include flat-deck link trailers, SA Truck Bodies, Henred Fruehauf, Afrit and Motor Trail flat deck, side tippers, Tautliner trailers, skidsteer loaders, excavators and backhoe loaders.
Standout assets include a case grader, a Caterpillar backhoe loader and Bell articulated dump trucks.
