Turners to Auction 10 Trucks at No Reserve

Media Release

Turners to Auction 10 Trucks at No Reserve

Turners Auctions will put 10 trucks under the hammer at no reserve next Thursday as part of an auction of 38 ex-lease trucks from Fleet Partners.

Notable among them is a Western Star truck worth around $140,000
The total value of trucks up for auction on Thursday is more than $1.5 million, says General Manager Sales and Marketing Todd Hunter.

And despite the economic downturn, there is plenty of activity in the commercial vehicle market, he says. A recent auction in Whangarei sold 51 trucks in one day, with more than 110 registered buyers at the auction.

“There doesn’t appear to be much gloom in the commercial vehicle market. Plenty of people realize this is a good time to be a buyer as there are a number of large vendors in the market highly motivated to sell excess stock.

“We are excited to be able to put 10 trucks up at no reserve, which is particularly popular with our customers,” says Hunter.

The auction will take place at the Turners Auctions site on the corner of Penrose and Leonard Rds at 11am on Thursday, December 11.
