Dublin's Plant & Machinery department has kick started the New Year by doubling the number of auctions it hosts each month.

The New Year has brought a new look to Wilsons Auctions Dublin Plant and Machinery department as it doubles the amount of auctions taking place each month.

The Dublin branch will now host its Plant and Machinery auction twice monthly, on the first and third Wednesday of each month, with the first of 2017 taking place on January 18th.

Having listened to customer’s feedback and as a result of increased volume coming through the Plant and Machinery department, Wilsons Auctions felt it was necessary to make the positive change which will allow customers two dates each month to buy and sell assets.

Ricky Wilson, General Manager of Wilsons Auctions Dublin branch, said “We are delighted to be able to increase the number of Plant & Machinery auctions at our Dublin branch for 2017. We felt it was important to listen to our customers and act on the demand and the result is doubling the number of Plant and Machinery auctions taking place each month. And with as many as six auctions each week, it provides the largest and busiest auction footprint in the Republic of Ireland.

“At Wilsons Auctions we have expert auctioneers and support staff and can offer customers an informative and hassle-free experience here at Wilsons Auctions. Our auctions are open to everyone, allowing customers the chance to experience the excitement of an auction physically. And with Wilsons Auctions website in the top 1% most visited in the world we are delighted to be able to welcome customers globally through our LiveBid auction facility,” he added.
