About Us



Vendu Cape is a family-owned auction platform headquartered in Pretoria, operating nationwide. Since 2003, we have specialized in providing comprehensive auction services tailored to the unique needs of the mining industry and government sectors. Our esteemed clientele includes listed mining houses such as Royal Bafokeng, Basil Read Mining, and Tronox Namaqua Sands. We have been conducting online auctions since 2016, expanding our reach and accessibility.

One of our standout achievements was the successful sale of two PC3000 front shovels, which were relocated to Mongolia. This highlights our capability to handle high-value transactions with precision and expertise.

Additionally, Vendu Cape has a proven track record in managing government auctions, including the South African Police Service (SAPS) non-runner vehicle auction and municipal auctions for Port Nolloth, Matzikama, and TWK municipalities. These projects underscore our versatility and reliability in handling a diverse range of assets.

We excel in converting underground mining, surface mining, transport, and redundant equipment into working capital, as demonstrated by our extensive experience and successful track record. Vendu Cape is a turnkey solution, offering comprehensive services that include sales, tender management, auctions, post-auction support, freight forwarding, and administration.
