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.

Used Plant & Machinery – Why Buy Second Hand?

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.

In our auctions, you'll often find some of the most trusted brands in the business, including Kubota, Nifty, JCB and many more! Because we work with leading businesses when it comes to sourcing lots for our auctions, you can feel rest assured that you're bidding on reliable machinery which is available at a fraction of the price than if you were buying new.

We pride ourselves on the sheer variety of lots we have available, so you'll often find everything you might need from excavators and mini diggers right through to bowsers and compressors. Whatever you're browsing for your site, there's a strong chance we have it available in one of our live or upcoming auctions, so don't hesitate to sign up to our newsletter to get alerted to the very latest auctions from BPI.
