Onsite Machinery Auctions

At Durrants, we hold regular onsite machinery auctions across East Anglia. Our dedicated team of auctioneers work closely with sellers and buyers as we look to provide a complete service including initial cataloguing, arranging adverts, in-house photography, catalogue production, on-site arrangements, pre-sale preparation and lotting up, the auction day itself and any follow up activity.

No distance is too far and we have excellent resources including a mobile office with onsite computer systems, signage etc. to cover all eventualities. Every detail is taken care of to ensure a successful outcome for our clients.

In order for a machinery sale to be successful, it must attract buyers. We use a variety of advertising methods to promote our auctions to our extensive regular buyer’s database of local farmers, machinery dealers and one off enquirers. Advertising in national and regional farming press and using a combination of direct email and social media we provide our customers with catalogues, specific item details and reminder messages about the forthcoming event.


With our extensive auctioneering knowledge we are able to provide an efficient and effective service to both sellers and buyers. As well as individual clients we have held numerous collective sales and are able to tailor our services accordingly to meet our clients’ needs.

Our experience and knowledge ensures sale proceeds are maximised and we aim to exceed our clients expectations. The whole auction is conducted in an efficient way and where available we can offer online live bidding to allow purchasers to bid on each lot from anywhere in the world. Our commission charges are flexible and competitive, and we account promptly with the auction proceeds.
