Major auction for metal recycling group

Major auction for metal recycling group

Rockhampton business Zebra Metals is holding a dispersal auction this week, with more than 340 lots going under the hammer.

It comes as owners Ron and Tracey Bowes take a step back from their business to spend more time with their growing family.

The Bowes have been managing businesses under The Zebra Group of companies in the Rockhampton area for more than 30 years.

The group currently transports and processes more than 30,000 tonnes of recyclables a year and collects, dismantles, and recycles more than 2000 vehicles per year.

Zebra Metals has instructed auctioneers Pickles to sell a range of balers, trucks, excavators, trailers, tankers, tippers, dollies, and more.

Pickles Rockhampton will hold an on-site auction for the assets as well as welcoming online bids. (Listings HERE)

“We are expecting strong attendance with business owners and buyers coming from across the region to snaffle a great deal.  We will honour social distancing rules and a Visitor Health Declaration is to be completed on entry,” Pickles Rockhampton branch manager Geoff Payne said.

Assets are located at Pickles Rockhampton (35-51 Somerset Rd, Gracemere) and can be inspected on the day or prior to auction by appointment.

The live auction will be held on site from 10am on Friday, October 30 as a one-off event where people can see the assets up close on the day.

Bids will also be accepted on Friday via PicklesLIVE (on the website) or the PicklesLIVE App on smartphone or tablet. 

The assets have been split into four separate auctions to enable bidders to take advantage of all the assets available.  Details are:
