The first timed online sale of tractors, combines and tackle by Durrants, of Beccles, resulted in successful bids from as far as afield as Yorkshire. Several were registered made by continental bidders.

All bidding took place via i-bidder.com and the lots were advertised in print. “This does not spell the end of the farm dispersal sale as we know them – quite the opposite. Depending on a client’s individual needs, an on-site sale may well be the best way forward,” she added.
