Bord na Móna appoints Wilsons Auctions for next specialist auction

The first lot from iconic company Bord na Móna will go under the hammer at 10am on May 14. Presented with live online bidding, registered bidders will be able to livestream the auction and bid online with a virtual auction experience.

ore than 70 tractors will feature in the large volume of surplus stock entered directly from Bord na Móna’s Derrygreenagh site. Some of the best-known tractor manufacturers in the world will be included in the line-up, such as New Holland, John Deere, Massey Ferguson and Ford — a brilliant opportunity for anyone looking for quality, used agricultural stock.

Other assets allocated within the 200-lot offsite auction includes a range of specialist equipment, fuel bowser service wagons, a JCB teleporter, a large selection of tyres and much more.

Ricky Wilson, director and auctioneer at Wilsons Auctions, said: “We are delighted to set the date for this auction. There is a huge demand for quality, used stock in today’s market and this auction will be a great opportunity for the farming community and businesses, as well as private buyers. The tractors really do appeal to everyone.

“It gives me great pleasure to watch these tractors and equipment be given a new lease of life and recycled back into local and international businesses, creating employment and further opportunities.”
