Long rows of diggers, dumpers, loaders, dozers, cranes and more. Hundreds of them, from various manufacturers, are brought together in one place, lined-up, sorted out and made ready for sale. Bidders are given the guarantee that every item sells on auction day to whoever bids the most, whether being there in person or joining live over the internet.

Welcome to Ritchie Bros., one of the world’s leading sellers of heavy equipment and trucks. With hundreds of auctions held over the world, the company sells billions worth of equipment every year. Each auction offers a large selection of items to choose from; all sorts of brands, models and types. Some refer to the auctions as ‘heavy equipment supermarkets’: a one-stop shop where you can tick several items off your heavy equipment shopping list.

More than 399,000 equipment items changed hands through the company’s globally held auctions in 2016, totaling at USD 4.33 billion (approx. GBP 3.47 billion) in auction proceeds. Last year 7 auctions were held at the company’s site in Donington Park (Derbyshire) that attracted hundreds of bidders from the UK, Europe mainland and many other places in the world. Founded in Canada in the late 1950’s, Ritchie Bros.’ unreserved auctions quickly expanded over the globe. Ritchie Bros.’ unreserved auctions are known for their fairness, efficiency and the ‘unreserved’ policy. Getting a good deal on quality equipment is what attracts a lot of people to buy at Ritchie Bros. auctions.
