Any mk1/2 transits in any state? Any that are saveable I would be interested. Anything that isn't I know a man who will buy them.

Otherwise a brief listing on here ought to get some stuff shifted. The large stuff like those Bedfords would probably go for export.
Old Glory magazine or vintage tractor and machinery I think offer free classified advertising and there are always wanted ads in them

Depending on the amount, type and age - you could get an auction house involved. Not one of the posh ones but a local general or agricultural auctioneer. Amazing what old agricultural kit, lorries and machinery goes for.

Put some pics up on a few "barn find/abandoned cars" Facebook pages and they'll get some good coverage
Whether they turn into sales is another thing....

Chuck em all on ebay no reserve and hope you don't get too many arseholes. It should get a fair price for them all, but don't list as a job lot. List them all seperatly and anything that doesn't sell get the local scrappy in to clear.

Build a list up first and then some pictures.

eBay should shift most or at least give an idea of prices. Given what classics go for nowadays, they all should fetch far more than scrap.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2008 Audi TT - Utterly boring but very compentent, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.

Cheers my father had mentioned he was looking for a Dexta, if you've got a Field Marshall there they are worth big money in any state. That one in the photo is a TVO Fordson Major (I think)

An on-site auctioneer as Lesapandre suggested probably the best bet. They and you can advertise the sale, and people will be obliged to cough up, unlike eBay where no doubt someone's kids will have bid my mistake.

I'd use the classic vehicle magazines and papers and discuss with your local agricultural auctioneer first if not in a massive hurry. I'd use Ebay as a last resort - it will attract all kinds of characters not all genuine. Especially if the site does not have someone there 24/7.

Auctioneers will also be able to flog all the rest including the metal sheeting, machinery and even buildings if they are demountable.

If you are able the auctioneers may be able to do press release that may get picked up by the agricultural press etc to further stoke interest. Amazing what a crowd an auction can attract - and a few buyers too if stuff is no reserve.

And the early honda cub(s)

Is that a Simpson sat next to the Ossa?

Any other competition/ off road stuff?

I would tend to agree an on site auction may be the best way forwards. Is it pressing to get the site cleared?
