Saturday, March 27th, 2010 - Pickles Auctions
Australian residents will have access to millions of dollars worth of storm affected vehicle stock over the coming months in the wake of the recent floods in Melbourne.

For the first time, Pickles Auctions Sunshine is holding a Hail Affected Auction on behalf of a major Car Dealership. Buyers can save thousands on new and late model vehicles.

The Dealership Auction will take place on Tuesday, 30 March. There are a huge range of vehicles including over 80 new Holden’s, Mazda’s and Honda’s and many more late model vehicles - all must sell.

The severe storms that hit Melbourne on Saturday, 6 March 2010 left a $400 million trail of destruction, and have been described as the most costly Australian natural disaster in 50 years.

Pickles Auctions Sunshine Branch Manager, Mark Thorne, believes this type of auction is a rare opportunity to capitalise on, given that the vehicles are selling on behalf of a major Dealership.

“Pickles have thousands of vehicles to sell as a result of the storms. In this particular auction, NONE of the vehicles are on any written off vehicle register and the vast majority have the manufacturer’s warranty included (excluding paint and panel)”, says Mark. “There has never been a better opportunity to buy.”

“Residents not living in Melbourne can bid online and save thousands. However, I would encourage locals to come and view the car they are interested in to ensure they are happy with it,” said Mark.

The Hail Affected Vehicle Auction will take place at 3.00pm on Tuesday, 30 March at 41-45 McIntyre Road Sunshine, VIC. Viewing times will be held between 8.30am and 4.00pm on Monday 29 March and from 8.00am on the day of sale.

All auctions conducted by Pickles will be available through Pickles Live online bidding. Buyers are encouraged to visit to view the vehicle listings, photographs and to find out how to register to participate in this auction.
