CAR parts, auto workshop gear, office equipment, used cars - you name it and it was going under the hammer at Ipswich Central Motors.

Hymans Valuers and Auctioneers, working on behalf of liquidators Hall Chadwick, were given the job of clearing out a wide variety of leftover bits and pieces from the failed dealership.

The auction attracted 30 registered bidders, with every item being sold, except for one of the seven used cars to go under the hammer.

Auctioneer James Rouse said it was a good turnout of bidders, considering the short notice given.

"Everything is gone except for the one used car, the Hyundai Terracan," Mr Rouse said.

The bidders gathered in the empty auto workshop of the former Great Wall and Kia dealership yesterday morning.

The business went into liquidation last month.

Trucks began emptying the car yards on Brisbane St at the Top of Town and the corner of Gordon St and Limestone St on the afternoon of July 24.

Dealership owner John Grant did not wish to comment about the car dealership business when approached the following day but he did confirm that his Avis car rental business would continue to operate.
