The eagerly anticipated RJ Barnett Agri Contractors auction took place on 7th April at 95 Mullanasilla Rd, Richhill, Armagh, BT61 9LL, Northern Ireland drawing a keen audience of bidders on the day, resulting in strong prices and a highly successful sale.
Euro Auctions showcased their exceptional ability to host 'off site' sales with the recent auction conducted for RJ Barnet which was held at the clients yard at Richhill, Armagh, attracting an audience of over 500 registered bidders.
Over 200 lots of good quality and well maintained equipment went under the hammer, including: Tractors, 10t Excavators, Flat Beds, ATVs, Bowsers, Compressors, Trailers, and attachments. Approximately 50% of all lots were bid for and won by online buyers, with the rest coming from the floor on the day. This was very much a 'home sale' with 99% of all lots going to buyers in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. That said, buyers in Belgium, Finland, Poland, Iraq, Cyprus and Portugal were successful in buying lots.
Martin Peters of Euro Auctions comments on the sale: "This was a very solid sale, with all machinery and equipment being well maintained and in good order. The sale attracted an international audience, however, on the day, the home market from the UK and the Republic of Ireland we successful in bidding on and wining approximately 99% of the lots for sale. This pattern is becoming very common at all Euro Auction sales, with the home audience bidding harder than international buyers, trying to keep the equipment and machinery in the country."
