Tony Richardson and the team at Richardson Bros. can close the door on the livestock transport business with a smile on their faces, after their asset sale went well.

The company took its remaining six prime movers and eight sets of B-double stock crates to auction with Ritchie Bros. at the auctioneer’s Yatala yards earlier this week.

Ritchie Bros. marketing manager David Fanning tells ATN the company had 1,241 registered bidders on the day of the auction, with the Richardson Bros. stock dispersal attracting buyers from all over Australia.

Ritchie Bros sold a 2015 Kenworth T909 6x4 Prime Mover for $200,000, and a 2013 model of the same vehicle for $155,000.

A 2015 Western Star 4900FXT Constellation 6x4 prime mover sold for $185,000, while a 2016 6.3m Tri/A B-double lead stock trailer sold for $102,500.

The company also sold one 2016 Cannon 12.4m Tri/A stock trailer for $115.000 – the same price as the same model vehicle one year earlier, while a 2015 Cannon 6.3m Tri/A B-double Lead Stock Trailer sold for $102,500.

As ATN reported, the family behind the New South Wales-based livestock transportation company decided to close the company earlier this year after 30 years of working in the industry.
