CHEFFINS offered new, used, ex-hire and ex-demonstration machinery for sale on behalf of major dealer, Ernest Doe, as a part of ‘The Doe Show with a Difference’.
Taking place between January 25 and February 4, agricultural, construction and groundcare machinery sales from the event totalled £1,256,125, with the auction microsite seeing 110,000 page views.
Given current pandemic re-strictions, Ernest Doe took the decision to host its annual major machinery show online. With clearance stock and used machinery offering a large part of the online event, the show gave customers the opportunity to purchase a wide range of quality machinery via the Cheffins online auction.
The lot which achieved the highest price at the event was a 2019 Case IH Puma 220 ex-hire tractor which was sold for £93,000. This was followed by a New Holland tractor, a 2018 T7.315 HD which made £81,000.
Other highlights include £63,250 for a 2019 Hyundai HX140LC excavator; £38,250 for a 2017 Manitou MLT737 telehandler; £35,000 for a 2015 New Holland T7.250 tractor and £29,250 for a 2017 Lemken Compact Solitair 9 disc drill.
Bill King, Chairman at Chef-fins, says: “We were delighted to be able to offer Ernest Doe the opportunity to host a highly-successful timed online auction for what is easily one of the most anticipated events in the machinery calendar. The event was a resounding success, with unparalleled interest from buyers in the machinery on offer.
“The sale saw buyers from across the UK and further afield all competing for the best items available, proving that the timed online auction format continues to pay dividends for machinery sellers. Bidders came from throughout the EU, including Holland, Belgium, Germany and Scandinavia.
“There also continues to be a significant number of post-sale deals agreed on the agricultural, construction and groundcare machinery on offer, ensuring that Ernest Doe sold as much stock as possible.”
