Wilsons News

Wilsons Auctions has been appointed by Fife Council’s Fleet Operations to assist in the resale of its end of life vehicles and plant equipment.

The two year contract, valid until September 30th 2018, will see Wilsons Auctions manage the remarketing and sale of HGV and LCV vehicles as well as plant equipment. The auction company will also be responsible for the secure storage of all items and getting them auction ready on site.

The auction company manages the whole asset realisation process for its clients which includes the collection, valuation, secure storage, re-marketing and auctioning of assets on behalf of its varied clients.  By providing the online auction facility LiveBid, Wilsons Auctions is opening up its business to a worldwide audience, creating greater exposure for its clients.

Peter Johnston, Wilsons Auctions Group Operations Director said, “Wilsons Auctions is delighted to be awarded the contract by Fife Council, to assist in the resale of its end of life vehicles and plant equipment across its Fleet Operations. This has also impacted positively on the work force in our Dalry branch with new jobs created, helping to support this contract.

“Wilsons Auctions is proud to work with a number of government agencies in the asset recovery and disposal of items across the UK and Ireland and across recent months has returned in excess of £80 million to the public purse. We have an enviable reputation for maximising asset realisation while minimising costs, making the asset recovery process as stress-free as possible for our clients,” he added.

Wilsons Auctions has been in business since 1936 and is the largest independently owned auction house in the UK and Ireland. With more locations throughout the British Isles than any other privately owned auction company, Wilsons Auctions processes a hammer total in excess of £200 million annually.
