I went thIs morning to Sheffield to collect my booty from the second of these sales, and it turned out better I a: glad to say.
I bought these 3 x kitchen mixer taps for stock for refurbs.
and these bathroom counter taps incl. a spare plus a waterfall bath filler for my upstairs bathroom redo in Sept.
Total retail value just over £1000.
Total paid £360 incl. 44% fees and vat on top of the hammer price, which is ok if not quite the best pricing ever considering the auction risk. Interesting war stories from the attendant whilst I was opening up and inspecting each piece.
I would go again, but I am only 45 minutes away.
£25 off a £150 order until June 23rd.

We tried a number of things:
We contacted low volume builders and ask them if they knew of any plots that had been offered to them but were not right for them.
looked at the Buildings at Risk register for any suitable ruins or derelicts that we could convert. The names of the owners are often listed so no problem finding them but no one was really willing to sell at a reasonable price.
Contacted landowners, there are a lot of shooting estates and large farms around that would be happy to makes some cash off of unproductive land, quite a few were up for selling but planning constraints torpedoed most of them.
Then it was Google maps, find a bit of land that fit the requirements, area planning etc and then knocked on the nearest farm door and asked.
We got leads from all of the above but In the end it was a farmer that eventually said yes to selling an acre of lightly wooded ground a few miles from Brechin.
It was a lot of hassle but worth it for the plot.
