Next week Ritchie Bros. will conduct its largest auction ever, selling approximately 14,000 items for more than 1,700 consignors in Edmonton, AB. In more than 60 years, the company has never seen this much equipment in one place and in six days it will all be gone. Sold to tens of thousands of online bidders from around the world.

"This massive auction showcases the power of our operational expertise, as we've processed more equipment and collected more info for buyers than ever before," said Trent Vandenberghe, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. "We have also uploaded thousands equipment videos for this auction to help our customers with virtual inspections. This auction should have something for everyone—get online and start shopping today!"  

The six-day Edmonton auction includes multiple fleet realignments and complete dispersals from Alberta consignors, including hundreds of items for Hammer's Gravel Supplies Ltd., Cinco Development Ltd., K & C Oilfield Hauling Ltd., and Absolute Crossings Ltd.

"When you sell at a Ritchie Bros. auction, you know your equipment will be sold that day. If we tried to liquidate everything ourselves it could take a year," said Dean Swanberg of Absolute Crossings. "Ritchie Bros. has some of the best advertising in the business and they're fair and honest to deal with—a great place to sell."

PriorityBid is now open, with items available to be inspected onsite in Edmonton, following strict social distancing rules, and virtually.

Ritchie Bros. is hosting three pre-auction educational seminars for customers this week—covering virtual inspections, cross-border shopping and Ritchie Bros. Asset Solutions tools. The company will also host two live industry panels on May 10, discussing the Canadian construction and agriculture industries. For more information about these events, visit here.
