Ritchie Bros close 2011 with six auctions in Europe and Middle East

Auctioneer to sell more than 7000 items in the last six weeks of 2011

One of the world’s largest industrial auctioneers has pledged to conduct six unreserved equipment auctions in Europe and the Middle East in the last weeks of 2011.

The American Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, isto sell more than 7000 items at the auctions, with more equipment and trucks being added in the coming weeks. Every item will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices, including heavy construction and earthmoving equipment, heavy haulage and transportation items (trucks and trailers), agricultural tractors and equipment, cranes, lifting equipment and many more used and unused industrial items.

“Many companies upgrade or re-align their fleets before the end of the year and our upcoming auctions are great opportunities to do so,” said Guylain Turgeon, managing director EMEA, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.

“Equipment sellers choose to sell their equipment and trucks at unreserved Ritchie Bros. auctions because they appreciate the reliability and efficiency. Buyers from all over the world are attracted to our auctions because they need the equipment and trucks to finish their projects—and they know we offer a huge selection and sell every item to the highest bidder on auction day.”

In the first nine months of 2011, Ritchie Bros. sold more than 34,000 items to online and on-site bidders at auctions conducted in Europe and the Middle East. Ritchie Bros. typically sells more equipment in the fourth quarter of each year in this region.
