Laurie Dealer can report that ERF is still doing a roaring trade. Most are heading overseas and there are plenty of punters bidding for them, whether its domestic trade acting as an agent or overseas buyers going direct.

Following on from its presence at the auctions last week, Laurie Dealer went through the buy and sell on to see what ERF vehicle are listed.

Jobs a good un.

SED 2011 used truck dealer event cancelled


Laurie Dealer has just heard that SED 2011 has been cancelled. In the past many truck dealers have attended the event, acting as representatives for the manufacturers.

Independents have been there too, including Huddersfield-based Mac's Truck Sales and Bicester-based Kel-Berg proved became mainstays at the event. 



Official word came from Robert Brighouse, managing director:

Important Visitor Announcement

Regretfully, I am writing to inform you that RBI has taken the decision to cancel Site Equipment Demonstration (SED) 2011, which was due to take place on May 17th-19th 2011.

The recession in construction has continued to affect suppliers' marketing budgets and despite the hard work of the sales team and goodwill from the market, the current level of commitment to next year's show is not what we had hoped and our feeling is the show is unlikely to meet our expectations. We therefore feel that we have no alternative but to cancel the show.

Since the closure of Contract Journal, RBI has supported SED with the monthly magazine Site Equipment Manager, and the website Both these brands will close with immediate effect as a result of the cancellation of the show.  

Thank you for your support of SED and the other RBI construction brands over the years, it has been much appreciated.

Managing Director
