Construction, Plant and Machinery Auctions at BPI

Online plant auctions and machinery auctions at BPI are a fantastic place to buy some heavy-duty kit to keep your site up and running. They’re a rich source of high-quality pre-used items such as compressors, bowsers and cranes that can be bought for a small percentage of original trade prices. If you’re setting up a site or need to replace broken items, the low costs make BPI Auctions a go-to destination for everyone in the trade.

With our easy-to-navigate website, you can simply browse listings and make bids on the machinery that best suits you and your organisation’s needs. Whether you’re a buyer looking to upgrade your existing plant or a seller who needs to streamline your existing machinery, our team are on hand to find the best solution for you.

Used Plant & Machinery – Why Buy Second Hand?

In our auctions, you’ll often find some of the most trusted brands in the business, including Kubota, Nifty, JCB and many more!

Plant and Machinery Auctions in the UK

Based in the UK, BPI are specialists in plant and machinery liquidation and asset handling. We regularly hold large sales of machinery, working with companies up and down the UK. We have experts on hand to offer advice and support on all of the items sold along with an in house team to aid and assist with any enquiries regarding the machinery for auction.

Just like our tools and tool hire auctions, the majority of items in a BPI plant & machinery auction come from some of the UK’s largest national corporate companies when they renew their fleets of hire equipment. A crane you might have hired out from a hire company last week could be in a BPI plant & machinery auction the next. This can often make buying equipment at auction a more cost-effective option than hiring.

Are there benefits to buying construction, plant and machinery equipment at auction?

Yes absolutely. Most importantly, within the construction, plant and machinery niche, the equipment is often very high value and also very difficult to get hold of. Auctions present a good opportunity for you to come across what you are looking for at a cheaper price for a slightly used option. The types of assets are generally sold via auction too. It’s the best place to look for plant and machinery and similar assets due to the growth in popularity over the past 10 years.

Can I view the machinery prior to bidding?

Machines stay with the client, so any viewings can be organised on their behalf via them directly, or we can assist here at BPI.

What are the fees and deposit requirements for Plant and Machinery auctions?

Generally the fees range from 5-15% plus VAT. It depends on the catalogue average lot value. If the kits expensive then the % is lower and visa versa.

Can I sell Machinery and Plant with BPI Auctions?

Yes. You can register to sell on the website for free and find further information on selling with BPI on our sell page here – We may conduct a profile lookup for verification. We can also send an agent out for free if it’s a fleet clearance.

Are the Plant and Machinery items checked prior to the sale?

All equipment sold at auction is sold as seen. It is up to the sellers of the item to ensure that they include as much detail as possible on the item to prevent anything unexpected.

Do I have to arrange my own haulage for collection?

The answer, in short, you will need to, yes. At BPI, we have partners to whom we refer clients for quotes if you require them. Alternatively, the seller usually has haulage facilities that can quote you after the sale.
