NMT Crane Hire - Euro Auctions Appointed To Hold Crane Sale on 10th November

Euro Auctions, Europe’s largest auctioneers of industrial plant, construction machinery, cranes and lifting equipment, has been appointed to hold a crane sale for NMT Crane Hire to make way for new equipment.

Bedfordshire based crane specialist, NMT Crane Hire, has instructed Euro Auctions to hold a one-day sale of mobile cranes, commercial vehicles, trailers, rigging and various accessories, on 10th November at their Windsor Road yard in Bedford.

This family business was founded by three brothers, Nick, Mark, and Tim Ambridge 45 years ago, and has since become one of the leading heavy lifting specialists to the construction sector, as well as building an industry wide reputation for providing cranes and lifting equipment to the film, TV and events concert industry.

Tim Ambridge comments, “In the last 45 years we have built a highly respected business and are well known in the industry, and now my brothers and I want to take things a little easier. So, we want to create a change in the business, passing the baton on to the next generation in the family to continue the work my brothers and I started and taking NMT Crane Hire forward. In order to achieve this, we are rationalising and refreshing our fleet, making way for four new cranes which we have on order for delivery in 2023.
