Sales Channels

We find the most effective approach for remarketing a wide range of asset types is a blend of several sales channels tailored to suit the requirements of the inventory and the client. Sales channels offered include:

Traditional scheduled room auctions

Traditional auctions are best suited towards high volume and value items such as automotive, trucks, machinery and aircraft. The traditional auction method leverages of the large body of behavioural psychology behind the auction process. The competitive nature of this process with an engaged auctioneer functioning as an active salesman ensures the best results for high value assets.

Webcast auctions

In cases where distance or access to a location is a problem Webcast auctions are the best solution. Conducted by an auctioneer onsite in the traditional way these auctions are streamed over the internet to a virtual buyer audience. This capitalises on the wealth of learning regarding the psychological factors in play during a live auction while harnessing the power of the internet.

Hybrid auctions

A combination of a traditional in-room or on-site auction with online bidding through our proprietary owned simulcast platform, which streams live audio of the auction over the internet at the same time as visually showing full asset details, photos and current bid information in real-time. This platform combines the premium results achieved through the traditional auction with the flexibility afforded through an online platform giving our clients the best possible outcomes for their assets.

One-off room auctions

These auction services are held in our secure facilities and cater for large single source consignments.

On-site auctions

An appropriate solution for the liquidation of an entire business or going concern, when transportation of assets is not possible or their current location is preferable for the market.

Online auctions

Suitable for lower value equipment or a large quantity of similar items such as that found in the IT, catering or retail industries. Whilst the passive nature of the online auction may not achieve the premium results of the hybrid auction, it is the most low-cost platform for remarketing assets.

Private treaty or Buy Now sales process

Whilst private treaty is a more common process in land transactions, it may occasionally be used when there are no time pressures and our vendors are looking for a specific result that might be higher than expected through alternative sales processes. This sales method is also used successfully in the sale of high-value specialist equipment where motivated buyers are few.

Expressions of interest or Invitation to Tender

The EOI or Tender process is a formal, structured process inviting interested parties to submit bids according to a predetermined set of rules. We use such processes for highly specialised equipment, which may not have a large number of buyers at any one time.
