Need Trucking Equipment? Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!

Ritchie Bros. sold over 350 truck tractors over six days in Chilliwack, BC in March 2010.

MONTREAL, QC— You can name your own price on more than 2,900 equipment items and trucks at the Ritchie Bros. unreserved public auction, which will take place in Montreal on December 5 and 6.

“We are selling a huge selection of equipment in this auction—more than 400 pieces—from lifting and material handling equipment to light and heavy construction equipment, along with attachments and more,” said André Véronneau, president and CEO of Simplex Equipment Rental, a Canadian rental company with more than 40 locations in Quebec and Ontario.

“With Ritchie Bros. we are able to quickly turn our idle equipment into cash and put that money towards upgrading our rental fleet with new equipment in order to improve our customer service,” Véronneau said.

Bids can be made in person at the auction site, live online and by proxy.

Buyers can choose from over 150 truck tractors, 70 hydraulic excavators, 40 wheel loaders, 30 articulated dump trucks, 20 crawler tractors and more—and every item will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices.

“With our auctions, sellers are able to reach a massive global audience of potential buyers; meanwhile buyers are provided an unmatched selection of used and unused equipment all in one place for them to inspect and compare—either on site or online,” said Jessy Cantin, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros.
