Bechtel selling wacky and wonderful items in Gladstone

NEED a steel igloo? What about a storage cage, flood lights, an SUV, a ute, or a defibrillator?

These are some of the weird, whacky, and wonderful items that can be bought at the Hassalls auction, which will be held in Gladstone tomorrow.

It's the next in a series of auctions tomorrow that feature equipment from the Bechtel Curtis Island LNG Project, which the company no longer needs.

Hassalls general manager Steve Wall said the auction has been a huge hit, with truckloads of equipment going under the hammer.

Buyers can either attend the auction or bid over webcast.

"We're seeing hundreds of semi-loads of equipment coming in from Curtis Island each month," Hassalls General Manager Steve Wall.

"The sheer quantity of resources we have to sell is extraordinary,we're talking about tens of millions of dollars' worth of over the full dispersal."

Toyota Hilux's, Nissan Navaras and Ford Rangers, are among the vehicles that will be sold off.

The auction will be held on Wednesday 10 February from 10am, 22 South Trees Road, South Trees, Gladstone, QLD 4680.
