A Loomberah clearing sale promises to be one of the largest the region has ever seen.

With more than 1000 lots up for auction, agent Dan McCulloch will cover over a kilometre of selling area.

“It’s a fantastic collection, from vehicles like a T Model 1910 to model trains and antiques, there will be something for everyone's taste” Mr McCulloch said.

People from as far away as Western Australia, Alice Springs and New Zealand have registered to bid at Saturday’s auction.

At least 1000 people are expected to attend the sale, but Mr McCulloch is prepared for attendance to exceed expectations.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if the overall attendance is closer to 1500 people,” he said.

A second auctioneer will be working simultaneously to Mr McCulloch on the day.

“We need to run a second auction at the same time, there’s just too many lots there for one auctioneer to do in a day,” he said.

The sale starts at 10am at 992 Monteray Road Loomberah.
