Trucks, Trailers and Yellow Metal ready for the taking

In seemingly no time at all, Park Village Auctions have already secured a bevy of quality trucks, trailers, and yellow metal to go under the hammer on the 22nd of March. This, following a hugely successful auction in which assets from a national haulage concern sold-out in record time just over two weeks ago.

That’s the news from Le Roy Augustyn who says that the attendance and prices fetched at their previous auction is evidence that the market recognises PVA a trusted source of reliable, affordable used commercial vehicles.

Augustyn: “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 first-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 gives testimony to the fact that bidders know they can acquire quality vehicles stemming from bank repossessions and a variety of genuine liquidation matters.”

In keeping with what bidders have come to expect, Augustyn says that the inventory comprises a wide variety of truck tractors, yellow metal, ‘rigids’ and a few miscellaneous assets.

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 Fuso, Nissan, Scania, Tata, Toyota Dyna, Volvo as well as 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.

Stand out assets include a case grader, a Caterpillar backhoe loader, and Bell articulated dump trucks.

The auction will commence at 10:30am at Park Village Auctions’ Truck Yard Johannesburg Expo Centre Nasrec Showgrounds (Entrance next to Gate 2) Randshow Road Johannesburg South.

Viewing will take place on-site on Tuesday the 20th of March from 10 am to 4 pm. Bidders can find more information on PVA’s website, using web reference 17436.
