Article from Sunday Business Post, 21/6/2020. The family owned auction house Wilsons Auctions is here to help when it comes to valuing and selling assets. Wilsons Auctions are the leading provider of premium asset advisory and remarketing services across Ireland and the UK and have a reputation for providing responsive customer service and dynamic commercial solutions. Now in our 85th year we have assisted our customers through many different challenging trading conditions and have always made the personal customer approach the forefront of our services.
Rebecca Wilson says Wilsons Auctions are pleased to offer a multi-disciplinary team of valuation, logistics, marketing and IT specialists alongside their highly experienced auction team to be able to offer tailor made services for each client.
“The pandemic impacted many businesses overnight, completely stopping many of them from carrying out any sort of trade which of course in turn effects the cash flow into their business - but this is something we can help with as we can provide alternative routes for businesses to generate revenue by freeing up the equity in assets.
We see so many businesses with assets sitting unused in a warehouse or yard and taking up valuable space so we would say, ‘why not sell them?’
At Wilsons Auctions we provide tailored solutions for each customer, whether they have one asset to sell or hundreds, we can walk our customers through all the services we have on offer.
We can provide valuations on any asset, collection and secure storage and, when remarketing our customers assets, they can rest assured that they are receiving the best possible exposure as our website www.wilsonsauctions.com is now in the top 1% of the most visited websites in the world.
Our asset advisory services are utilised by a range of clients from small businesses to multinational blue -chip companies and from financial institutions and accountants to government bodies.
And we really want to help everyone through this challenging time.
When we say we sell everything we mean it as we have specialist departments in vehicles, plant & machinery - including agriculture, engineering, manufacturing, land & property, aviation & marine, retail and hospitality, fine art and jewellery and, over the last few years, we have even been auctioning cryptocurrencies for government bodies.
Since the pandemic we have had so many different companies approaching us to see if we can help release equity in their assets, from large shops who have aged stock sitting in their warehouse to logistics companies who have trucks and trailers not being used. And we are happy to initially provide valuations on assets to the company or their accountants so they can decide on their next steps.
Once the customer decides they would like to sell an asset, or assets, the process is very simple as our dedicated team look after everything from collection of the assets through to advertising via the best marketing medium and then selling by Public Auction.
This is an excellent way to sell assets in todays climate as it is clear and transparent, our auctions are open to everyone to bid and with modern technology purchasers can bid from anywhere in the world from the comfort of their own home.
Where a client has a number of assets, we can leave them in situ and sell them directly from the premises, again Wilsons Auctions look after the entire process.
We are seeing very strong prices for many different kinds of assets which is why we are in contract with many government departments, main dealers, large wholesalers and manufacturers – as they see an auction as a fast and efficient remarketing method.
And we understand that these are very challenging times for everyone so all calls are held in the strictest of confidence or we can also be reached via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.“
