Di­rec­tor at WH Auc­tion­eers

● On Tues­day this week, com­mer­cial auc­tion­eers WH will be host­ing another mas­sive live auc­tion at its sprawl­ing fa­cil­ity in Midrand.

Heavy-ma­chin­ery and ve­hi­cle buy­ers from through­out south­ern Africa are keep­ing a keen eye on the in­ven­tory as it grows over the re­main­ing days un­til the auc­tion.

WH Auc­tion­eers di­rec­tor Tim Varen­za­kis says the mar­ket for used equip­ment is heat­ing up as more small and medium-size busi­nesses bid for busi­ness. In ad­di­tion, changes in gov­ern­ment in Zim­babwe are also hav­ing a pos­i­tive ef­fect on busi­ness.

WH’s up­com­ing auc­tion will fea­ture five late-model cranes. Two cranes that will be sure to raise a high level of in­ter­est are the 2009 Lieb­herr LTM1055-3.2 all-ter­rain mod­els.

“"It's been a long time since we've seen cranes like this,” said Varen­za­kis.

“This is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for engi­neer­ing and civils spe­cial­ists as well as crane op­er­a­tors to get their hands on pop­u­lar cranes they need for up­com­ing projects.”

This auc­tion is a great way for con­struc­tion com­pa­nies, rental busi­nesses and smaller con­trac­tors to add equip­ment to their fleets. With over 280 lots on of­fer, buy­ers will have a mas­sive choice of late-model, well­main­tained units, in­clud­ing eight me­chan­i­cal horses, 10 trail­ers, seven ex­ca­va­tors, six dump trucks, three wheel load­ers, three bull­doz­ers, 10 agri­cul­tural trac­tors, 13 tlb back­hoe load­ers and much more. Mas­sive brands are well rep­re­sented, in­clud­ing Cater­pil­lar, Mercedes Benz, JCB, Bell, Volvo and oth­ers.

In ad­di­tion to the used equip­ment items, there will be more than 60 new pieces from a va­ri­ety of brands. Twelve Dy­na­pac rollers, 35 gen­er­a­tors from 35 to 250kva, as well as three-to-seven ton fork­lifts, skid steers and mini load­ers will be avail­able.

Big equip­ment won’t be the only im­pres­sive late model lots hit­ting the WH auc­tion block. It will also fea­ture 27 late­model low-kilo­me­tre Mercedes Benz pas­sen­ger cars, with var­i­ous classes on the floor. Buy­ers will be able to buy A, C, E, G and CL ve­hi­cles priced to sell sig­nif­i­cantly un­der book value.

On auc­tion day all equip­ment items and trucks are sold in a se­quence. Af­ter hav­ing found items of in­ter­est on the WH web­site, buy­ers can visit the Midrand site to per­son­ally in­spect items on the view­ing which is that day or prior to auc­tion for added con­fi­dence.

Bids can be placed at the fast-paced auc­tion in three ways: in per­son, on­line in real time, or by proxy. Af­ter the auc­tion, suc­cess­ful bid­ders can col­lect their pur­chases al­most im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing pay­ment. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, visit www.whauc­ or con­tact them on 011 574 5700
