Linde Transport has consigned surplus assets including three 2021 Kenworth K200s and a T900 Legend to the upcoming Ritchie Bros. National Unreserved EOFY Auction being held in coming weeks.
The Australian National Unreserved EOFY Auction will be held from June 22-23. “We already have over 1500 assets consigned to our auction in June, with more to be added daily,” said Ritchie Bros. regional sales manager Dale Spedding.
Ritchie Bros. says supply chain constraints and component shortages continue to put pressure on the industry, with the shortage hindering global vehicle production expected to persist through 2022 before supply catches up with demand in early 2023.
Spedding is encouraging consignors with good quality stock to bring their assets to market.
“With our premier EOFY event just around the corner, you might be thinking of generating cash for your business, adjusting your equipment fleet, or selling your surplus equipment while demand is high,” he said, adding that the Linde Transport assets are in hot demand with buyers looking to skip long wait times.
“These are late model trucks and the attention to detail will be appreciated by buyers. Greg names all his trucks. His Kenworth T900 Legend is named Livin’ the Dream, while his three Kenworth K200s are named On a Journey, Corner to Corner (as it ran the Brisbane to Perth route), and Shake n’ Bake (which was named after the Will Ferrell movie Talladega Nights),” continued Spedding.
“The OEMs are using different methods to manage the backlog of orders. Some are cancelling 2021 orders and rebooking those orders in 2022, sometimes at a higher price, as commodity and shipping costs rise. Others are only booking a limited number of orders each month.
“Our National Unreserved EOFY Auction is a great opportunity to pick up all the assets you need without the long wait times.”
Bidders are encouraged to inspect onsite at Ritchie Bros. Yatala yard which is open for inspections Monday through to Friday and on Saturday, June 18.
The event will be held exclusively online with those interested in bidding urged to register to bid before the auction. Day one of the auction (June 22) will be dedicated to construction and crushing gear while day two (June 23) will focus on transportation and agriculture assets.
