    Default Hold your bids for Pickles car auctions!

    It would seem that some vehicles held at Pickle's Brisbane yard are no longer for sale - hope there was nothing valuable there!

    Sad that, but fortunate it was only some of the cars.

    Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Superintendent Wayne Halverson said they suspected the fire at Geebung was deliberately lit.
    "The damage is fairly extensive. It started in the bushland adjacent to Pickles Auctions and that fire in the bushland then jumped over the fence and spread to the cars, which were parked in this yard," Superintendent Halverson said.
    "There were about 70 cars involved — that does sound quite serious but there are 1,750 cars actually parked inside the premises.
    Looks like we are in for a bad summer fire season, keep safe in Queensland.

    They can just move them to the salvage auction.

    Is that what is termed a "Fire Sale"? Hopefully the owners of those cars didn't cancel their insurance in anticipation of the vehicle being auctioned.
