Dispersal sale exceeds expectations at Dulford Nurseries

Dispersal sale exceeds expectations at Dulford Nurseries

It was a busy yet productive day at Stags' recent Dulford Nurseries dispersal sale.

The sale saw three auctions running throughout the day, with a team of auctioneers selling for a combined time of 16 hours. Chris Clapham, who heads up Stags’ On Site Sales department said, “The sale was a big challenge for our team with the sheer quantity of goods involved and the logistics of it being spread over a 20-acre site, but with a clear plan and preparation we were able to conduct the sale in an organised and efficient manner. The attendance and financial result of the sale exceeded both mine and the vendor’s expectations. To my delight, more than 400 purchasers attended the sale from across the whole country, resulting in the large majority of trees, shrubs and plants being sold along with an excellent trade for the machinery lots.” 

Dulford Nurseries owner, Mr Paul Rawlings, commented, “I was impressed with the way the sale was run and overwhelmed by the interest and attendance Stags was able to generate.” With more than 20,000 trees to choose from, the highest sale was for an ornate Liquidambar, which achieved a price of £140. Amongst the machinery and vehicles on offer, the highest price was achieved for a 2006 2.5-litre Mitsubishi Trojan L200, which was sold for £5,400, followed by the 1988 JCB Farm Master Telehandler at a hammer price of £4,500.
