How To Buy From Pickles

Pickles offers multiple ways to purchase including auctions, fixed price and tender/ EOI. From auction room to leading digital applications, Pickles provides support throughout the entire purchasing journey. Their Concierge team are on hand to help you source the asset you need, talk you through next steps and even assist with transport.

Assets are sourced from reliable sources such as state government, major corporations, banks, not-for-profits and fleet and insurance companies.

Buying At Auction, Online Or Onsite

Buying at auction lets you determine the purchase price – it’s fun, easy and can save you thousands.

Pickles stocks 6000+ assets across 16+ auctions every month. Auctions are held onsite and streamed live giving you the flexibility and convenience to bid from anywhere at any time.

To get started, visit to search by location, upcoming auctions or asset type. View the auction catalogue, add assets to your watchlist or register for an auction. On auction day, either visit the branch in person or participate via Pickles LIVE, their streaming platform that lets you hear the auctioneer, see pictures of the asset and bid in real-time.

Some auctions will be held online with no auctioneer. To purchase an asset in an online auction, simply visit and search by PicklesONLINE. These auctions run over a period of several days and at any time you may indicate your maximum bid amount. Can’t stay and watch? The system will bid for you up to your maximum amount but never beyond.

Buying Through Tender/EOI

We offer a range of industry-specific or one-off assets which are available for sale through expressions of interest prior to auction. These include machinery, plant and truck tenders. All tenders/EOIs will be posted online at

A wide range of caravans, earthmoving and mobile plant, machinery, trailers and trucks are also listed for sale through Pickles’ fixed price channel, PicklesGO.
