Michael Doyle Auctioneers hosted a retirement machinery dispersal auction on Monday 22 January.
The sale was held on behalf of contractor Liam Tobin. With over 40 tidy lots up for grabs, the auction took place online through the MartEye App and secured a clearance rate of 100%. A total of 296 people registered to bid, with a further 12,500 tuning in to keep an eye on proceedings.
With exceptionally tidy equipment up for grabs, many of the lots were purchased by Liam new over the years. The prices secured were a reflection of the condition of the machinery, with some lots even exceeding their original new buying price at the auction. The auction comes as Liam is retiring from contracting after 50 years in the business.
Most of the lots in the sale were subject to VAT, while commission was charged at a rate of 10% for items sold up to €1,000 and at a rate of 5% for all items sold above €1,001, capped at €2,000 per lot.
