Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers and graysonline are opening their treasure chests for tradies, farmers, and contractors to view in the Gladstone region on Monday before putting a bid in in the online auction room.

The auctioneer heavyweights' arrival follows a series of Hassalls auctions where a team of auctioneers has offloaded millions of dollars' worth of Bechtel's pre-loved Curtis Island gear in a $35 million clearance.

Hassalls will hold its final Gladstone auction around mid-October, but a date is yet to be set.

Modular portable buildings, cable trailers, cradles, cabling, light fittings, measuring and testing equipment, isolation boxes, hoists and welders, are some the items that will go under the hammer.
