Euro Auctions has been instructed by Nixon Hire to dispose of its assets, in a fleet rationalisation that is part of its business development plan for 2024.

Euro Auctions has announced that the sale will take place at their site in Leeds, Yorkshire, on 29th, 30th November & 1st, 2nd December. The sale itself will comprise well-maintained, late plate and low hours ex-rental machinery from Nixon Hire. This will be one of the most outstanding consignments of machines from a single vendor, it says, and will be of much interest to UK and global buyers.

More than 500 machines have been selected by Nixon Hire - over 50% will be of 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 models with low hours. All machines are in excellent condition and have been well maintained and are presented in multiples of makes and models. Examples of the inventory include:

Telehandlers 2019 - 2023
100+ machines

Excavators 2021 - 2023
20+ machines
Kubota KX080 and Volvo ECR88

“We remain an ever evolving and growing company and we have taken the opportunity to refocus our resources and commit to a robust programme of investment into developing and delivering the products and services our customers require," said Nixon Hire CE, Graham Nixon. "As part of this fleet rationalisation and stock disposal, you will see some of our large plant equipment being sold. The full proceeds, and more, will be reinvested in further growing our accommodation, welfare and renewable power fleet.

"We will continue to be a one-stop site solution provider on a national basis, and we have plans to further expand our depot network in 2024. This is by no means our exit from large plant. We certainly don’t want customers to think that we are winding down our service, now or in the future – this is simply not the case.”

While David Betts of Euro Auctionsadded: “This sale is not to be missed and if, as a buyer, you’re in the market for late, quality machinery, you must take a look at this consignment in the November / December Leeds sale. Nixon Hire has looked after their entire fleet very well indeed, and some of the 2023 plate machines only have delivery hours on the clock. Even the hours on the 2017 to 2020 machines are well below average. We expect a great deal of interest in this sale.”
