Case Study: Bolton Council

Endorsements are a testament to the proficiency of a business and we want every business we work with to achieve success. Here is a detailed analysis of the work we carried out for one of our clients and how it helped their business.

Background

Bolton Council was in need of asset disposal for the entire contents of one of their leisure centres.

Situation

By selling these assets at auction, Nathaniel Carter & McSkelly Auctioneers were able to generate income for Bolton Council within a limited time frame and with limited council resources. Although they had been directly contacted with offers from multiple companies to purchase the assets NCM Auctions were able to double their income through our online auctioning, whilst saving Bolton Council significant removal costs.  Nathaniel Carter & McSkelly Auctioneers took a solution-driven approach to the situation. Systematically dealing with the site. Bolton Council selected Nathaniel Carter & McSkelly Auctioneers to expertly manage the disposal of its surplus gym equipment whilst maximizing the return and minimising council's involvement and disruption to services.

Method

Throughout the online auction, Nathaniel Carter & McSkelly Auctioneers managed all buyer inquiries, inviting them to our warehouse to inspect the assets whilst supervising all visits to ensure the security of the assets.  We worked closely with buyers to remove and transport the assets ensuring compliance with all health and safety regulations and minimising disruption to council staff and services. 

 

Result

Nathaniel Carter & McSkelly Auctioneers were able to sell 92% of all assets listed to generate a total income of £42,738.84. This money was used to help the wider community in many ways including the purchase of sewing machines for use within a women's refuge and a new gym and a café expansion in the local community.

We never knew a service like yours existed!
