Almtone-owned Canute assets to be auctioned

Canute trailers


Hilco Global is to auction a selection of cars, trailers and HGVs belonging to Almtone-owned Canute Group next week (7 February) following the operator's move into administration last month.

The sale of the “substantial transport fleet” will commence at 11am at a location in Gamston, Nottinghamshire. It also includes workshop and yard equipment.

Available to purchase are five MAN 6x2 tractor units with high sleeper cabs, Scania P and R-series trucks, a DAF LF and a selection of vans from Ford, Renault and Mercedes-Benz as well as 120 trailers from SDC and Montracon.

Preview information will be available, although strictly by appointment, on the 5th and 6 February.

Contact Kevin Smyth at or call 08453 130 140 for more information.

Almtone-owned Canute Group was place into administration ahead of Christmas, although a deal with the firm’s customers saw 120 jobs saved.

Hilco Global is conducting the auction on behalf of the failed haulier’s administrator Begbies Traynor and an unnamed finance company.
