Thereafter they intend to hold these collection sales on a quarterly basis at this site at Aycliffe Quarry close to the A1. By holding these machinery sales on a regular basis, Tom Oates the company’s resident Auctioneer aims to provide a platform for farmers to both sell their surplus items and to secure good second hand farm machinery.

Second hand Farm Machinery and Dead stock sales have always been popular and in the past on site farm sales used to take place every weekend. This is no longer the case, and there is now a shortage of both sales and stock. George F. White have recognised that there is a demand for these auctions, especially in the current economic climate. By instigating their revival they are leading the way in providing an outlet for farmers and rural businesses to trade their machinery.

Tom Oates explains why second hand machinery is growing in popularity: "There is a lack of machinery sales this year due to fewer farms changing hands and there are more and more people who would rather invest in good quality pre-owned machinery as opposed to buying new. For this first sale we have some fantastic entries and we are updating the web site with these on a daily basis.”

Buyers stand to make considerable savings by buying items at auction rather than brand new and this first sale has already created a great deal of interest. Key items entered in the auction to date include several tipper lorries, a good range of tractors, and some very good arable equipment such as a Case 1000 MS sprayer, Vaderstaad ten folding meter roller, and a Major 800 topper. Full details of all the items for sale are listed on

George F. White have specifically chosen The Aycliffe Sales Centre to hold these regular auctions as it is located just off the A1 and is easily accessible to farmers travelling from both the North East and Yorkshire. The sale will be held on Saturday 12th September at the Aycliffe Sales Centre, The Aycliffe Quarry, Aycliffe, and Darlington.
