'Bloke Bonanza' expected to create 'online frenzy'

Hassalls will be auctioning millions of dollars' worth of equipment out to Central Queensland locals in Gracemere (Rockhampton) on Wednesday, June 1, from 10am.

The event is expected to ignite a buying frenzy following last month's on-site auction, which saw more than $1.2 million worth of second hand construction equipment spread across 319 lots sell at a 98 per cent clearance rate.

This month's auction has over 450 lots and is much larger than any previous sale in Gracemere.

Hassalls General Manager Steve Wall said: "At our May auction, light commercial vehicles sold at almost ten per cent less than previous events, which was excellent news for anyone looking to upgrade their fleet or family car."

At this auction there will be school buses, dual cabs, switchboards and air compressors, gloves and protective clothing, trailers and shipping containers.

"So far we have sold off more than $16 million worth of plant and construction equipment at our Gracemere sales and have around $20 million left to go. All buyers are welcome to join us on-site or via webcast. Just make sure you get a good night sleep as we're expecting a big turnout and you'll have to bring you're A-game to get the best deals."

Hassalls will be supporting the Rotary Club of Rockhampton, who will benefit from the catering proceeds on the day.

The auction is one of a series of Curtis Island LNG Project sales on behalf of NYSE-listed Liquidity Services, which has over 7,000 clients, three million registered buyers and achieves over $1 billion in sales annually.
