Truck and Trailer Auctions Favoured For Affordability
In keeping with its long-standing reputation of providing the market with quality and variety, Park Village Auctions will soon make available yet another large collection of truck tractors, trailers, yellow metal and farming equipment which should appeal to buyers across the spectrum.
That’s the news from PVA’s LeRoy Augustyn who is pleased to announce that the auction will take place on Thursday the 26th of April at 10:30 am.
Specific truck tractor brands to go on the block include Isuzu, International, Nissan, Mercedes Benz, Freightliner Argosy, MAN TGA and TGS, Scania, Iveco, Tata and Hino.
The earthmoving equipment comprises backhoe and skidsteer loaders, wheeled loaders and tipper trucks.
Rigid trucks include MAN, Mitsubishi, Nissan UD40, 80 and 90, Toyota Dyna and Hino rigid trucks.
PVA’s trailer stock features Henred and Kearney tri-axle slopers, SA truck bodies and AFRIT flat deck trailers.
While the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) reported ebbed year on year sales figures in the commercial vehicle segments, Augustyn says that PVA has, by contrast, enjoyed an uptick in sales at their auctions in recent months.
Augustyn: “Prices achieved at our most recent auction illustrate that the demand for commercial vehicles has not waned. Buyers are instead exercising prudence, seeking out quality second-hand assets to offset increases in VAT, emissions ad valorem taxes, fuel and Road Accident Fund (RAF) levies.”
Towards the end of March, PVA achieved the following notable vehicle auction prices, excluding VAT and buyer’s commission:
• A 2015 Hyundai HD72 closed-body rigid truck sold for R175,000.00
• A 2013 UD CW 26-490 curtain side rigid truck sold for R535,000.00
• A 2016 MAN TGS 27-440 truck tractor sold for R565,000.00
• A 2015 Caterpillar 428F backhoe loader sold for R570,000.00
• A 2016 Mercedes Benz Axor 1823 refuse rigid truck sold for R710,000.00
• A 2016 GRW tri-axle chemical tanker trailer sold for R785,000.00
• A 2016 Scania R500 LA truck tractor sold for R950,000.00
“Our month-end auction is shaping up well,” notes Augustyn. “The banks have commissioned us with a large variety of vehicles that is sure to pique the interest of those in the logistics and agricultural sectors alike.”
The auction will take place at Park Village Auctions’ Truck Yard Johannesburg Expo Centre Nasrec Showgrounds (Entrance next to Gate 2) Randshow Road Johannesburg South. Viewing will take place on Wednesday the 25th of April from 10 am to 4 pm.
