TORONTO, Ont. — Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, the world’s largest industrial auction company, will be selling more than 2,000 heavy equipment items to the highest bidders at an unreserved auction in Bolton, Ont. Dec. 11-12. The multi-million dollar public auction features complete dispersals for two local earthmoving and site grading companies, H. Davis Equipment Rental and D.V.C. Contracting, as well as equipment from more than 260 other consignors. Among the equipment being sold will be crawler tractors, hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks, motor graders, motor scrapers and truck tractors.

“This is an excellent opportunity for industry participants who want to expand or upgrade their fleet with late model and well-maintained equipment and perhaps take advantage of the void that will be left in the local earthmoving industry with the retirement of these two companies,” said Brian Dykstra, Ritchie Bros. area manager. “We have an exceptional line-up of equipment available, and it will all be sold to the highest bidders at the auction.”

The auction will begin at 8 a.m. on both days at Ritchie Bros.’ permanent Toronto auction site at 3 Manchester Court, in Bolton. Like every Ritchie Bros. sale, the auction will be completely unreserved, meaning there are no minimum bids and no reserve prices; every item sells to the highest bidder on auction day, regardless of price. The auction is open to the public and registration to bid is free.

Interested bidders can find more information about the auction, including photos and equipment details, on the Ritchie Bros. Web site at, or they can visit the Toronto auction site to test and inspect the equipment in person. The site opens daily at 8 a.m. Additional items will be added to the auction right up until sale day. To discuss selling surplus equipment in the auction, contact Ritchie Bros. at 905-857-2422.

Interested bidders who are unable to attend the auction in person can register to bid online, live and in real time, using the Ritchie Bros. Internet bidding service, rbauctionBid-Live. Internet bidders must register online before auction day at (at least two to three business days is recommended for first-time registrants).
