29 auctions across the United States, Canada, France, Germany, and Australia this week
VANCOUVER, B.C, June 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - This week, Ritchie Bros. will have its biggest week ever, selling 35,000+ equipment items in 29 auctions across the United States, Canada, France, Germany, and Australia. In just five days (June 22 – 26) the company will sell 3,800+ truck tractors, 900+ excavators, 600+ wheel loaders, 350+ dozers, and so much more across its three main selling solutions: Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, IronPlanet, and Marketplace-E.
"Our ability to drive demand and attract record numbers of bidders during this time of great uncertainty is proving very valuable to many of our customers who need liquidity right now," said Ann Fandozzi, Chief Executive Officer, Ritchie Bros. "As a result, buyers have access to an outstanding selection of late-model, low-hour equipment. We encourage interested bidders to get online, do their research, and get ready to add a new piece to their fleet this week."
Ms. Fandozzi continued, "Due to COVID-19 all our auctions continue to be online-only events. For those who have never bid online before, it's easy. If you do need help, we have a customer service line to get you registered and walk you through the process."
Two of the premier auctions of the week will be held in Houston, TX on June 23 – 24 and Edmonton, AB on June 24 – 26. Close to 15,000 items will sell in these two auctions alone. A few specific highlights in these two events include a 2015 Tadano GR-750XL 75-ton 4x4x4 rough terrain crane (Houston); two 2018 Caterpillar D6T LGP dozers (Edmonton); and an unused 2019 Western Star 4700SB custom vac Chinook 10,450-litre hydro vac truck (Edmonton).
