Two auctions were run, the first site was the central Oamaru office block due to the high cost of building rental. Exiting the premises as quickly as possible to ensure a minimum of residual rental cost was a priority. The first auction event ran for seven days and consisted of 70 lots, it was office furniture themed with building supplies and tools being relocated to the builders yard. The second auction totalled 121 lots and was building themed with a range of single and tandem axle trailers, a 20’ container, builders sheds, a wide range of tools and building supplies.
Skylarc prepared the online auctions to maximise recoveries, photographing, describing and testing each item. Each listing provided potential buyers with detailed information resulting in a high level of bidder confidence. Where possible, smaller, easily freighted items, were assigned a delivery cost which opened up the auction to a nationwide audience.
