Regardless of whether the UK manufacturing industry is expanding or in decline, history shows there will always be a regular supply of used forklift auctions, handling, and storage equipment entering the secondhand market and going under the hammer. 

Auction News can point you towards a choice of suitable manufacturing and factory auctions if you’re looking to increase productivity in your warehouse, factory, or storage business by upgrading old lifting and handling equipment. Or, if you’re gearing up to increase capacity by adding newer, more modern manufacturing equipment, one of our auctioneers may have you covered there as well with one of our factory equipment auctions.

Our auction listings include a vast range of equipment, machinery, and tooling from well-known manufacturers. From material handling machines to warehouse racking and shelving, we have a wide range of lots available with the potential to provide you with cost-effective solutions to improve the efficiency and productivity of your business. 

Many of our live auctions now include full lot descriptions with photographs to help you find the perfect auction for your needs. Register today and create your account to begin bidding on your own terms!
