Paul Thompson of Ardath Acquisitions and Trading knows vehicle, equipment and machinery markets inside out. Paul began buying and selling commercial and light vehicles, transport equipment and farm machinery decades ago as part of running the family farming business.

Because of his dedication to researching markets and pricing trends within each market, he was able to secure good deals on machinery, vehicles and equipment.

This couldn’t stay a secret for long.

Paul quickly started getting calls from friends, neighbours and the wider community for help to buy or sell vehicles, machinery and other equipment at the right price.

Since then AAT has sourced a huge variety of vehicles, machinery, plant and equipment from across the state, across Australia and even across the globe.


In addition to our brokerage services, we also offer you catalogue stock both for direct purchase and for sale on behalf of clients.

We list a variety of machinery, vehicles and equipment on our catalogue page. We love providing an additional marketplace service, as well as being able to pass on value opportunities that we discover across new and second hand markets.

You can browse our Catalogue page anytime, or call us on 0427 949 355 to ask about what we have on hand.

How AAT has helped clients


"We simply didn’t understand the current marketplace. We gave Thommo an initial budget of $60K for a Prime Mover with a reasonable history record, rating of 90T and hydraulics. He very quickly showed us what we would get for that budget - an older truck (2004-2006) with high km’s. A friend purchased a Prime Mover through Thommo - after seeing what Thommo was able to find for him, we quickly reviewed our budget without compromising on our requirements. Our purchase resulted in a 2010 model in excellent condition and moderate km’s for $90K. If we had tried to search ourselves, we would have paid more like $120K for the truck we ultimately purchased. Thommo’s ability to research the market, present information and follow up saved us time, money and gave us a truck that exceeded our expectations well within budget."

“In early 2020 we engaged Paul Thompson on the recommendation of a mutual friend to source a quality tandem drive truck. The success of this led us to ask Paul to present options for a complete seeding rig. After discussing our brief he presented spreadsheets on gear suitable from within WA as well as the Eastern States with full delivered costings. His ability to negotiate and his insights on value realised us savings approaching $80,000. The AAT service is direct, prompt and appropriate.
