Pickles Auctions is proud to announce our appointment as the official auctioneer for the South Australian Government. This is a significant change for the Government as they have been conducting their own auctions for the past 30 years. The auctions will now move from their current Netley facility to Pickles Auctions, Salisbury Plain.

The first weekly South Australian Government Vehicle Auction will take place this Wednesday at 10.00am (10th October) at Pickles Auctions and will be opened by the Minister for Finance, Hon Michael O'Brien MP.

Consumers will have access to one hundred quality ex-Government vehicles every week. All buyers, including private and dealers, are welcome to attend.

Matthew Peterson, Director of Motor Vehicles at Pickles Auctions, comments on the appointment:

"This is a major achievement for our company and is one of the most important contracts our organisation has been awarded. For the Government to contract our auction services after such a lengthy period of time conducting their own auctions is a privilege for our company. In return, our business has made a significant financial commitment in the upgrading of facilities and employment of local staff to support this Government contract. "

Matthew continues, "Becoming the official auctioneer for the South Australian Government further confirms our position as Australia's number one motor vehicle auction group, providing second to none service to both vendors and buyers."

Pickles Auctions also offers Pickles Live, allowing buyers to participate in live onsite auctions from the comfort of their home or office. Buyers can view photographs of all the vehicles for sale, hear the auctioneer call the bids over the internet and join in the bidding with a click of a button.

The Salisbury Plain auction facility has been in operation for over 15 years and has offered Adelaide residents thousands of vehicles through their weekly Government, fleet and repossessed vehicle auctions. In 2011, Pickles Auctions sold over 18,000 vehicles in Adelaide. The Group has 23 branches across the country and is the only truly national Auction group in Australia, with facilities in every state and territory.

Pickles Auctions now offer more than 10,000 cars, trucks & machinery live online to choose from at any one time and are conducting in excess of 100 auctions per month online.
