About our Truro Collective Sales
Lodge & Thomas hold four collective sales in each year, on the Sale Field at Truro Livestock Centre, with entries from multiple Vendors across the region. Forthcoming dates are listed on our website calendar.
Our collective sales frequently include agricultural vehicles, machinery and implements, tractors, trailers, boats, caravans, agricultural deadstock, building equipment, tools, timber, granite, slate, stone, garden machinery, plants, nursery stock, bygones, collectables, liquidation stock, retirement stock, etc.
Our collective sales are conducted primarily as traditional live auctions. However, we also employ a comprehensive range of sale methods including live online auctions, timed online auctions, hybrid auctions, and private treaty sales. Through the use of our Sale Field at Truro Livestock Centre, our purpose built auction facility “Truro Sale Room”, together with on site auctions at vendors’ premises, we can tailor your sale method and venue to best meet your requirements.
Collective sales are often arranged into three auction rings with auctioneers selling concurrently.
Purchasers must register for a bidding number and supply full name, address and telephone number on the sale day.
