PVA’s LeRoy Augustyn is optimistic about the upcoming auction citing improved
sales figures for both heavy commercial vehicle and tractors reported by NAAMSA
(The National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa) and SAAMA
(The SA Agricultural Machinery Association) respectively.
Augustyn: “New vehicle sales figures for HCV’s from May to June of this year
increased by 22.9% indicating an upsurge in consumer confidence. It’s not a stretch
of the imagination to say that used vehicle sales will follow suit.
“Meanwhile, SAAMA’s year-to-date tractor sales figures reflected an 11,9% increase
compared to the first six months of last year as well as a 25% increase in combine
harvester sales in June 2018 compared to June 2017. Both figures lead me to
believe crops and subsequent summer harvests look promising.” He adds.
Those looking to invest in the genuine bank repossessed assets to be made
available by PVA should head to Nasrec on Randshow Road in JHB South of the 26 th
of July where the auction where commence at 10:30 am. Viewing will be held the
day prior from 10 am to 4 pm.
