Dunton To Make An Immediate Environmental Impact Selling To Ritchie Bros.

October 5, 2020| 3 minutes to read

Leading remediation specialist, Dunton Environmental has become the first UK business to purchase the next generation Cat 330 excavator with the latest Trimble 3D machine control, thanks to selling its used Cat D6T direct to Ritchie Bros.

The sale, which was agreed with funds released in less than a week, saw the Cat D6T, which also had machine control, sold by Ritchie Bros. at its auction in June 2020.

Commenting on the experience in the video below, Sean Deloughery, Director of Dunton Environmental, said: “We pride ourselves in operating the latest environmentally-friendly equipment, and with our Cat D6T reaching three years old, we were looking to sell the machine. When we spoke to Ritchie Bros., they explained the options to us and made the process very easy and painless. We chose to sell it directly to them to make it as quick as possible.

It was a lot easier than trying to sell it ourselves and having landed at the Ritchie Bros. site in Maltby on Thursday; it was checked over on Friday. They paid us straight away; it couldn’t have been any easier. We then immediately reinvested in the latest next-generation Cat 330 with Finning, which went straight to work on one of our prestigious projects.

Dunton Environmental worked with our territory manager Laura Roberts on the sale, who added: “Sean and his team had a price they were looking to achieve with the sale of the Cat D6T, and we were able to offer it to them. As we buy a lot of equipment this way, we have a simple process to allow for the swift transfer of funds, detailed below.

Having purchased the unit from Sean, we then put it into our auction in June 2020, selling it on for a second life with another owner.
