About Parkvillage Auctions
Park Village Auctions was founded in 1983 by Jack Lazarus and sons Roy, Clive and Dean.
From inception until the present day, we stand proudly as an independent auctioneering
company which has earned well deserved recognition as one of the premier auctioneering firms
in South Africa. Our reputation is firmly entrenched in a history of cast-iron integrity in our
dealings with clients and stakeholders and our commitment to the auctioneering sector.
Our operations are driven by a policy of continuous improvement in which we strive to build
capacity and expertise to add value to our principals, clients and business associates.
We retain our leading position in the auctioneering sector by setting benchmark standards in
every aspect of the auctioneering process to achieve progress within the industry.
Park Village Auctions is an empowered and engendered company in terms of the Department of
Trade and Industries (DTI) BEE codes and the company is thus able to meet fully, the auction
disposal needs of both the Government and private sectors.
Our objectives in this front are facilitated, in part, by offering franchise opportunities for the Park
Village Auctions brand, a route for which has significant empowerment potential.
HOW WE OPERATE
Auctioneering in today’s times requires an integrated blend of business, financial,
entrepreneurial and marketing skills. The diverse experience of Park Village Auctions’ experts
provides the company with a broad-based business perspective that enables us to achieve
outstanding results for our clients. We provide a countrywide network via our franchised offices
in Pretoria (see below), branches in Nelspruit and recently established, fully fledged offices in
Bloemfontein and Durban, both of which have substantial storage facilities. We also have
associates in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Border. Park Village was originally a family
business. To this day the same ethics and principals that guided the company from the outset
continue to be applied, coupled with the ability to service and participate in every facet of the
The company is entirely dedicated to auctioneering. We believe this is a significant strength in
that our success is fully intertwined with that of our clients’ interests.
With the opening of franchised offices in Pretoria in July 1999, Park Village Auctions added to its
already extensive and comprehensive services north of the Jukskei River.
The Park Village Auctions Pretoria sphere of influence includes the Pretoria/Centurion area, with
special emphasis on The Northern Province. The rationale behind the Pretoria office was and
remains, to be close to “what is happening” in these areas and in so doing, to achieve rapid and
timeous response to clients’ needs.
Park Village Auctions Pretoria offers the full portfolio of expertise with which Park Village built its
reputation, notably in terms of movable or immovable assets and in the real estate sector that
includes agricultural, commercial, industrial and residential properties.
A particular area of speciality lies in the valuation and auctioneering of both fixed and movable
agricultural assets, where expertise has to be of the highest order due to the complexities of
numerous segments of the agricultural market such as arable (cash crops), grazing (livestock),
game, forestry, citrus, deciduous fruit, vineyards farming etc.
Ensuring that the office is a market leader in South Africa is a staff of highly qualified specialists
headed up by Andre Venter (who also oversees financial and administration matters and the
property portfolio), individually and collectively this team has the knowledge and experience to
ensure delivery of world class services in this highly demanding market sector. In addition the
office draws on the expertise of agricultural economists, financial, legal and other specialists
They are backed in turn by a highly experienced administrative team and an integrated
computerised marketing, sales and accounting network system.
Moreover the Pretoria office has full access to logistics, asset control and storage facilities for
everything from light movables to heavy capital equipment, trucks and motor vehicles, as well as
the business linkages and expertise of the entire Park Village network of branches and

The group has developed unique methods of insuring, storing, securing and controlling assets
such as motor vehicles, trucks, capital equipment and small lots such as office contents.
Our world class facilities in this respect include the truck and capital equipment storage centre,

goods are allocated to secured areas of storage under 24 hour surveillance and can only be

add for Park Village clients.
