GOING once. Twice. Three times. Sold!

Pie warmers, fridges, cars and plenty more will go under the hammer next Wednesday in what has been dubbed the "ultimate bloke auction."

See who went to the last auction


Auctioneering firm Hassalls will host another major sale of items from Bechtel's dispersal of the Curtis Island LNG Project.

The auction will also see a variety of standard vehicles go under the hammer, including Nissan Navaras, Ford Rangers, Volkswagen Transporters and Toyota Prados, Land Cruisers and Hilux's.

Hassalls general manager Steve Wall said the traditional style of his auctions meant locals in Gracemere and Gladstone will get the pick of what's on offer.

Mr Wall is expecting another large turnout following last month's auction which saw 95% of the products sold.

To bid online and to view the catalogue go here.

The auction will be held on Wednesday, March 2, from 10am, 35 - 53 Somerset Rd, Gracemere.
