Heavy Equipment


Bid with Confidence on Heavy Equipment at Australia's Greatest Auction House

Over the course of 15 years Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers have developed into one of Australia’s premier auctioneering and valuation companies.

Lloyds Auctions was founded by Andrew Webber as a family business in 2004 and the company is now led by Lee Hames. 

Over the years, the core family business values that Andrew held dear from the beginning have continued to grow with Lloyds as we established ourselves in the marketplace. 

This means seamless customer service to you, our bidder (and of course, our vendors), is at the forefront of what we do.

You are assured of great service because we adhere to our core values and strengths of honesty and dedication. These have helped shape and develop us as a business and are an integral part of our success. 

What do Lloyds Auctions do?

We pride ourselves in many different areas ranging from heavy equipment, agriculture goods, transport, mining gear, portable buildings, classic cars to consumer goods, just to name a few.

There is sure to be someone to help you, no matter what you are looking to purchase!

Lloyds Auctions cover all forms of auctioning including online, simulcast and traditional (both in-room and onsite) creating the perfect environment for you to bid, no matter your circumstances or where you are located.

Whatever your method, we will have you thoroughly equipped to handle any heavy-duty task.

We actively operate throughout all Australian states through our 10 dedicated auction facilities. Lloyds Auctions have offices all over Australia ranging from Northern Queensland down to Coffs Harbour, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, with our head office located in Brisbane. 

We aim to be no more than 3 hours away from you no matter where you are on the East Coast!

We are also continually expanding into the international market with many auctions gaining high interest in Europe, America and Asia.

Lloyds Auctions sell items from tractors right through to industrial equipment and heavy plant machinery. 

If you need to lift, transport, shovel, or even decimate, we have what you need! 

One of Australia’s oldest farming families came to the end of an era, making the difficult decision to change lifestyles.

Norman Farming sold over 2000 lots of farm equipment through Lloyds Auctions last year, after farming since the mid 1800’s in QLD.

Why is the best gear found at Lloyds Auctions?

As civil and mining work piles up across the country, people like you are now having to find new ways to purchase heavy equipment due to high demand and limited supply. 

It may come as no surprise to you that construction and mining companies who are wanting to upgrade their existing heavy equipment can be delaying new jobs up to a year while they wait for the delivery of their brand new gear!

But as we know, a big lead time for new equipment isn’t always a practical option for smaller contractors. Battling with shorter lead times, you don’t always have the luxury of waiting for a new piece of equipment to be delivered.

However, you can find great alternative ways to source your gear. Purchasing previous models in auction from those that have upgraded to new equipment, is an effective time and money saver.

After more than 80 years manufacturing equipment for oil, gas and mining industries both nationally and internationally, W.E Smith Engineering closed its doors towards the end of 2016.

Lloyds Auctions in conjunction with Aylward Auctioneers were officially appointed auctioneers to sell their reputable engineering equipment – completely unreserved.

Trust is our middle name

Lloyds Auctions specialises in Heavy Equipment sales and is Australia’s Greatest Auction House and Trusted Reseller of Heavy Equipment.

We are endorsed Auctioneers and Valuers for State, Commonwealth and Local Government Departments including QLD Police, Gold Coast City Council and Department of Transport & Main Roads, so you know you will be well looked after.

You may have seen us on the news as we continue to make headlines, building trust and credibility Australia wide. We are Australia’s Trusted Auctioneers & Valuers seen by millions all over mainstream media such as Seven News, Sunrise and Hot Tomato Radio.

We love to see our staff flourish in their roles and our vision is to continue providing the high level of service that we have always applied in our Carrara, West Gosford and Girraween locations.

This means our standards of practice, service, skill and qualifications are second to none! 

Lloyds Auctions is just a great group of people trying to do great things and we wouldn’t be able to achieve any of them without the support of our amazing bidders and vendors.

Are you a details person? We know it can be scary starting something new so we have answered all the questions you could ever think of when it comes to purchasing through Lloyds Auctions! Simply click here to find out more.

Seeing Lloyds do an auction in Clontarf over 10 years ago must have made an impression on this vendor because it seems our name stuck with him all these years. 

Last year we held an auction for his plastic and PVC manufacturing business closure!

You need to act now!

With Australia’s growing population and the ever increasing demand for better infrastructure (particularly in commercial construction), you can tell earthmoving equipment is a booming industry.

Roads, highways, buildings and commercial infrastructure work is continuing to grow, as well as urban development such as housing.

These make heavy equipment such as dozers, excavators, graders and rollers essential in order to keep the jobs rolling on!

Right now, we have a series of auctions that feature an unbelievable range of heavy machinery and equipment auctions, including earthmoving and attachments, transport, fleet and light vehicles, plant and GPS equipment. 

The items are located across the country so think of Lloyds Auctions as an online ‘one-stop shop’ for all your machinery and transport needs, with a focus on yellow gear. 

You can easily browse the whole range of available equipment and filter it by category. We can also recommend preferred carriers that we use to transport your new purchase to wherever you need it.

In the description of each lot you will find where the item is located and the direct contact details for the exact right person here at Lloyds to chat to about it if you have any more questions.

Why should I bid with Lloyds?

Purchasing previous models of machinery in auction from those that have upgraded to new equipment, is an effective time and can be a great money saver in the mining, agricultural, civil and construction industries.

Upgrade or expand your fleet by buying, or make return on gear from a finished project through selling.

Whether you’re working on a farm or in rock and dirt, this major auction series is something you need to be paying attention to!

Deal with great people, easily browse great products and buy for great prices.

All at Australia’s Greatest Auction House.
