Wilsons Auctions sells company’s premises and contents in one day, in one auction!

Our Dublin teams realised a total of over €620,000 for premises and assets at Co. Mayo auction.

Wilsons Auctions, Ireland and the UK’s largest independent auction company, has successfully managed the auction of the premises of Murphy Stainless Steel Specialists Limited as well as the Metal Working Machinery & Equipment, achieving a hammer total of over €620,000.

Taking place at the premises itself in Moneen Industrial Estate in Castlebar, Co. Mayo the auction was extremely well attended with bidders both nationally and internationally interested in over 160 Lots including the warehouse on c. one-acre corner site within the industrial estate.

The machinery and equipment realised well in excess of the expected return with every Lot selling, while the property achieved an impressive €185,000 over the reserve.

Speaking of the success of the auction Shanta Lawlor, Offsite Auction Manager at Wilsons Auctions Dublin said, “We were delighted to welcome so many bidders both nationally and internationally through physical and online bidding which ultimately helped to achieve such a fantastic result for the liquidators of Murphy Stainless Steel Specialists Ltd.  Thanks to the expertise of our Mobile Auction Team we were able to offer a great set-up at the convenience of our client and customers.”

Celia Lamb, Land and Property Department Manager at Wilsons Auctions Dublin said, “The auction of the warehouse, in the same auction as the assets, proved a great success for our vendor, with the sale opening at €300,000 there was swift bidding in increments of €10,000 and achieved a total of 28 bids. This auction highlights the wealth of experience brought to our clients with our ability to maximise the return on behalf of vendors and I am delighted that we achieved €185,000 over the reserve price which was a substantial result.”

Tom Murray of Friel Stafford, Liquidator of Murphy Stainless Steel Specialists Limited said, “I would like to thank everyone at Wilsons Auctions for their professionalism and expertise throughout the whole process in realising the assets from Murphy Stainless Steel Specialists Ltd. This was a significant auction to manage however from the start to finish the Wilsons Auctions team offered a streamlined seamless service. The ability of Wilsons to auction both premises and contents at once was a fundamental factor in the fantastic hammer total as was their national and international reach to potential bidders.”
