Following upcoming retirement plans, BPI Auctions was appointed by DB Joinery to support the online auctioning of 200 lots of surplus company equipment.

Working closely with DB Joinery, the appointed asset disposal specialists, BPI Auctions executed a prompt turnaround. The auction went live within two days of the lotting process and was completed in just under four weeks.

The auction generated an immense amount of interest, with over 300 registrants. The total sales value accumulated to over £95,000 and 99% of all items for sale were quickly sold. Some of the items available to bid on included a range of woodworking equipment, vehicles, power tools, forklifts, and tooling equipment.

Successfully purchased items included:

  • Mitsubishi Shogun SUV
  • Ifor Williams Tipping Trailer
  • Mercedes Sprinter Van
  • Masterwood Winner CNC Router
  • Woodworking Equipment

In addition to managing the auction process within a short timeframe, the asset disposal specialists and machine movers had the assets cleared from the company’s location in just over two days.

Nick Carter, managing director of DB Joinery commented: “We were absolutely delighted with the sales process and speed of execution we received from BPI Auctions. During James’ initial visit, he outlined the timescale and suggested that within three weeks from the lotting-up process, we would be able to hand the keys back to the landlord. Richard and Hughie lotted and got the auction live within two days, and one week after the auction, Stuart and Hughie attended to oversee the removal of everything.

“We were delighted with the professionalism and efficiency of the company from beginning to end, and we would highly recommend it.”

Also commenting on the auction's success, James Ormsby, business development manager at BPI Auctions, said: “At BPI, providing an immediate and thorough auction process, with nothing but the highest quality customer service, is one of our main priorities. It’s fantastic to see pleased customers who have been impressed with the professionalism and speed of service they have received from the BPI team.

“This sale was a fantastic success, and we look forward to helping many more businesses looking to relocate, retire or resize with the disposal of assets with the help of our bespoke services.”
