We're Expanding!!

02/05/2023     Latest News

It is an exciting year for Dunn Bros SW Ltd, having secured a long-term lease on an additional eight-acre site within the old Tarmac yard at Henlade, Taunton.

The online-reserved plant and agricultural machinery auction held its first sale on 30th June 2022 with just under 300 lots. Within just 9months, with its fifth consecutive sale hosted in March 2023, they have seen buyer numbers quadruple and lot numbers increase three-fold.

The Dunn brothers are prominent names in the wood waste industry and have been avid traders of plant and ag machinery for many years prior to the auctions conception. Having seen a gap in the South-West for a local outlet providing top quality machinery, whilst ensuring the best prices are secured for sellers and buyers alike, Dunn Bros SW Ltd was created.

Located just two miles from Junction 25 off the M5, the site is perfectly placed for getting your machinery to and from the auctions. Its accessibility has allowed for heavy equipment coming in and out – Volvo L180 Wheeled Loaders, Komatsu HM400-2 Articulated Dumptrucks, Volvo EC480EL Excavators and numerous Tractors, Foragers and Combines – just to name a few. Assisted further by the fleet of Dunn Bros low-loader trucks travelling nationwide, the brothers really have guaranteed that delivery and collection of purchases is an easy, supportive process.

Looking to export machinery? They can help with this too! With buyers as far as Uruguay, they are well-equipped to assist with all things export related – from offering bespoke washing services to ensuring the relevant documentation is provided – making it as easy as possible for overseas customers to buy.

The company prides itself on its personable nature, valuing all its customers. Whether you’re a small trader or a large hire company, your contribution to the companies’ successes is appreciated and gratitude is evident through the friendly, above-and-beyond service provided by its staff.

Dunn Bros offers a complete auction wrap-around service, and its only getting better...

On Friday 28th April, the Dunn brothers signed a long-term lease, expanding the site by an additional eight acres. The new site boasts new offices, concrete loading ramps and a two-acre indoor workshop space equipped with heavy-duty gantry cranes, which will be used for washing, paint spraying and mechanical services etc – all services can be quoted on a bespoke basis.

With its newly acquired capacity, Dunn Bros is planning to take its auction Live, with onsite bidding expected to be accommodated by July 2023.

Regarding the expansion, Auction Manager, Janice Gill, had this to say: “Having been with the company since its first auction in June 2022, it is incredible to see how far our small passionate team has come in such a short space of time and it’s exciting to imagine where we are heading in the future. I am looking forward to going live as it brings a fantastic atmosphere and will give the Team a chance to interact more with our customers. It is a great time to be part of Team Dunn Bros.”

Whilst the infrastructure is put in place for the onsite bidding, Dunn Bros SW Ltd will be hosting their next auction online. Contrary to previous online-timed auctions, this auction will be run by a live auctioneer – just another steppingstone in the path to fully fledged live auctions!

Their next auction date is 31st May 2023, from 8am.
