Excellent Service & Good Value
Auctions provide excellent service and good value to both buyers and sellers. No longer seen as a place to send low value items, clearing out the 'junk'. Since the global down turn in 2008, when OEMs stopped manufacturing new machines, auctions were the place where contactors, civils companies and hire specialists went to look for good, well maintained, late, low hours machines with which to replenish their stock. Today, the same holds true, with Covid affecting production of new machinery, and OEMs holding back 'stock', auctions can supply the demand of the market.
The experience of attending big plant and machinery sales, is like visiting a super dealership, or a 'one stop shop', where every make and model of machine or piece of equipment can be seen in one place, offering the buyer choice and access to any bit of kit the buyer may be searching for.
At all sales the makes and models on show range in years, varying in number of hours and number of owners, giving the buyer exceptional choice in one place, enabling buyers to find machines that match their budget. Now with robust online bidding platforms for all Euro Auctions sales, buyers around the globe have even more choice, and can participate in any one of the 70+ global sales each year. At the regular Euro Auctions sale in the UK, where over 5,000 plus pieces of exceptional equipment goes under the hammer over three days, one lot is sold every 20 seconds and a hammer of over €47 million is repeatedly achieved. Rental companies also have strong relationships with specialists like Euro Auctions repeatedly trusting the reach, the customer base and the marketing power to attract buyers who are prepared to pay decent prices for well-maintained stock, enabling them to raise funds to buy new, upgrading their inventory
Rasmus Kruse concludes, "The business model for buying construction and agricultural machinery in Denmark is the same as the German model, buying machinery brand new from specialist dealerships, and returning that machinery after three years, buying new and returning after another three years, and so on. The Euro Auctions auction in Dormagen, Germany has changed that thinking, with over 85% of buyers and vendors now coming from Germany and loyally returning to buy and sell, again, and again. That is what I will be introducing to the Danish market, and with the Dormagen sale just over the Danish border, I am sure there will be great interest."
