An upcoming sale has been announced on behalf of Cornwall based WH Bond and Sons Ltd, which will include over 1,200 lots of well-maintained machines, including models from predominantly 2019, 2018, and 2017.

Euro Auctions, the appointed valuer and auctioneers, are predicting unprecedented interest in the sale, which will take place on October 3 & 4.

WH Bond and Sons Ltd is a family run business and one of the leaders in the field in the West Country. The company has an exceptional inventory of stock. Due to market conditions, coupled with the uncertainty of how Brexit will affect the plant and machinery sectors, the company has made the decision to retire the plant hire and agricultural machinery sales division of their business with immediate effect.

David Betts, Euro Auctions territory manager for the UK and manager of the up-coming sale said: “With over 1,200 lots of quality equipment up for sale, this is one of the most eagerly awaited off-site sales of 2019.

"With predominantly 2019 to 2016 machines in the catalogue, that are in ‘like new’ condition, this sale will draw much attention from the buyers.

"The care and attention bestowed on each item for sale by WH Bond is evident and will ensure the line-up on sale day will be more than impressive. The newer, large ticket, items in the 1,200-machine line up puts estimates of the value of this two-day sale at £15 million.”
