Ritchie Bros. September Auction Sees 31% Item Increase

Aug. 30, 2019 - With 10,000+ items to sell—up 31% year-over-year—Ritchie Bros. has extended its September auction to five days. By the end of the day on Sep. 14, every item will be sold and on its way to different jobs across Canada or around the world.

"We have equipment from 1,000 companies prepped and ready to sell," said Trent Vandenberghe, regional sales manager, Ritchie Bros. "This includes a lot of low-hour, late-model equipment as a result of multiple fleet dispersals, including all the assets from Terra Firma Equipment Sales & Rentals, which has been one of the most trusted heavy equipment and attachment sales and rental companies in Western Canada since 1967."

Equipment highlights in the Sep. 10 – 14 auction include Soilmec SR50 crawler drills, excavators, truck tractors, thousands of attachments, and more. All items will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices.
"Everything we are selling is prepared to go to work," said Dave Rock, operations and general manager for Terra Firma, which is selling more than 1,200 items in the September Ritchie Bros. auction. "Most of our gear is low-hour; some is brand new. Our equipment is first class and we wanted a first-class auction company, so we chose Ritchie Bros. We have already received calls about our equipment from all over the world."
