Watts & Associates are specialist Auctioneers with a wealth of experience in hosting and managing auction events for single and multiple vendors throughout the UK. We also hold regular dedicated auctions from our auction facility in Carlton, Barnsley. Our expertise includes contractors plant and construction equipment, grounds maintenance equipment, agricultural machinery, vehicles and light industrial equipment. The company was formed in 1995 by Martin Watts who began hosting regular collective machinery auctions in Monk Bretton, Barnsley, later re-siting the auction to Hemingbrough near Selby. In 2006 Martin sold the company to John Roebuck and Colin Crossland who have kept the Watts & Associates good name and honest reputation while adopting new and forward thinking improvements including implementing new technology within the auction interface. Due to a rapid growth in auction sales, we acquired a larger site in Carlton, close to our original roots. In April 2011 after an extensive phase of redevelopment, the first auction was held there. In 2013 the facility handled 30,000 lots of machinery. Our general sale is held every 5 weeks and attracts in excess of 3,500 lots per sale. Equipment ranges from telehandlers and excavators, power generators and compressors to tractors and mowers, power tools and gardening equipment. The auction facility covers 4 acres of secured area which includes 7,000 square feet of covered space, a large loading area, fixed and mobile loading ramps and car parking spaces for up to 120 visitors. The facility has a 24 hour manned security system and is operated 365 days per year.
