On Site Auctions

Maritzburg Auctioneers cater for the Customer requiring Auctions to be held on site .This is normally decided between the Seller and the Auctioneer and takes place when a large auction would be more beneficial on site than have all the assets transported to our premises.

A team of trained staff and auction computer systems can be taken on site, which makes selling your items from your premises more beneficial to you. This could apply to Full Household Auctions, Liquidations, Full Business closures, Heavy plant and machinery, Vehicle Fleets and most Government Auctions.

Some Recent Auctions done on site have been: an Engineering Business Closure; a Panel beating Business Closure; Auctions done for KZN Evemvelo Wildlife; Departments of Transport, Education, Local Government and Traditional Affairs; Correctional Services; Sisonke Municipality; uMngungundlovu Municipality and many others.
