Ritchie Bros. is set to 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 to 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.

"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, Texas on June 23 to 24 and Edmonton, AB on June 24 to 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).

Ritchie Bros. also will be conducting a special Northeast Regional Auction (June 23 to 24) , selling more than 5,800 equipment items from four different locations — North East, Md.; North Franklin, Conn.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; and Williamsport, Pa. — in one auction. The company also has four other site auctions: in Columbus, Ohio (June 25); North Battleford, SK (June 25 to 26); Los Angeles, Calif. (June 26); and Gonzalez, La. (June 26). All these auctions, including Edmonton and Houston, will be held as online-bidding only events with a live auctioneer.

The company also will hold 20 timed auctions tat its sites in Saint-Aubin-sur-Gaillon, France (June 23 to 24); Meppen, Germany (June 25 to 26); and 18 on-farm locations across western Canada.

On top of all these events, Ritchie Bros. also will conduct a quarter-end online auction (June 25), featuring a selection of mining and aggregate equipment, and a special Australian auction (June 23) event on IronPlanet.com. There also are thousands of items available for sale on the company's Marketplace-E channel.
