For the second time, as part of the Doe Show, which runs from the 1st to the 3rd of February, Cheffins will run a timed auction.
Set to run until the 7th of February, the auction will include a huge selection of ex-demonstration, ex-display and second hand machines on behalf of Ernest Doe, as well as implements, parts and accessories. Over 600 lots will be sold at the event, with buyers having the option to view the items on offer and leave bids whilst at the show. The items will be sold at a heavily discounted rate, with no buyer’s premium charged.
Graham Parker, sales director at Ernest Doe commented: “Following an incredibly successful collaboration with Cheffins last year, we are delighted to be incorporating a timed online auction once again, alongside our physical show. There are no buyers’ fees – your winning bid is what you pay and we are offering free delivery within our Doe trading area for all items over £2500 + VAT.
“This will be our 62nd Doe Show and every year it just gets bigger and better – the auction element gives an exciting new dimension to the show with all the machinery on display and available for inspection and screens to monitor the progress of the bidding.”
Bill King, chairman at Cheffins said: “We are delighted to be working with Ernest Doe for the second year running. Last year the pandemic put the stop to live attendance at The Doe Show, however, we found that the online auction was hugely successful and allowed bidders from all over the world to take part in what is one of the most anticipated events in the machinery industry’s calendar.
“The joy of this year’s format is that buyers who can attend the event will be able to see up close the items on offer as well as watching the auction progress throughout the show. Our team will be on-site and able to take bids on items and also answer queries and provide support throughout the auction process. We will be offering some fantastic lots, with a series of high-value machinery, spares, implements and accessories at all different price points which will be set to attract both private and trade bidders from the UK and worldwide.”
Highlights of the sale include an ex-demonstration New Holland T8.435 Smartrac, a wide selection of new and unused cultivation equipment from Lemken, Dal-Bo, Bednar and others, and a range of ex-hire Case IH tractors.
