The collapse of Bedfords Group and RPL Transport in late March has led administrators KPMG to conduct a special sale of some of the two firms' assets.

A fleet of 80 curtainsiders will go under the hammer by Sanderson Weatherall in an online auction that also covers trucks, vans, cars, garage equipment, forklifts and office equipment.

Viewings will be conducted from 9:30am to 4pm on Tuesday 30 April at RPL Transport’s base in Milton Keynes (MK13 0ER) and on Wednesday 1 May 2019 at Bedfords’ premises in Birstall, West Yorkshire (WF17 9LT).
