We are Australia’s largest valuation, advisory and asset remarketing organisation dedicated to delivering excellence at every step. Pickles has a truly national footprint with 27 facilities nationwide, as well as one in Malaysia, and over 900 staff committed to the management of assets. We hold 150 online and onsite public auctions monthly, and in addition, we leverage fixed price sales, public tenders and expressions of interest to provide a solution tailored to our clients’ specific assets. Learn more about our asset disposal channels below.
Pickles has 50+ years’ experience in the auction business and an annual gross turnover of $2.7 billion. Pickles’ branches are strategically located near hubs meaning we’re where the customers are. This, along with our deep expertise, means we can achieve high returns. Out traditional auctions are marketed across multiple channels – online, newsprint, industry – specific media, social media, television, radio, and email – to reach the largest network of buyers.
Running over a period of several days, online auctions are best suited for specialised assets and certain industries such as engineering, retail, and food processing. Our online buying service, PicklesONLINE, makes it easy for customers to bid on assets from their desktop or laptop in our regularly scheduled online auctions. Online auctions may be the best way to maximise the pool of potential buyers.
Major Event Onsite Sales
When value can be maximised by selling assets onsite – for example, for particular types of plant and equipment in the event of insolvency or a location closure – we organise Major Event Onsite Sales. These sales allow buyers to inspect plant and equipment on location and deliver a higher overall return than disassembling the equipment and transporting it to our auction location.
Sale by Expresssion of Interest (EOI)/Tender allows for the disposal of specialty items in a structured format. Pickles Advisory experts assess the value of the item and advertise it for sale. Our team is experienced with this structured sales process, including preparing tender documents, remarketing strategies, managing inspections, collecting offers and other sales assistance.
Fixed price sales are an effective way to dispose of some liquid assets such as cars in good condition without sending it to auction. Pickles offers fixed price sales on fleet, government and repossessed vehicles online and onsite at our branches to provide a seamless service for buyers. We offer finance, insurance, warranty, delivery and trade-ins. We also offer Buy Now on all fixed price vehicles giving customers the flexibility and convenience of purchasing a car online.
