An unmatched source of equipment values
Sign up for a free online account and gain access to selling prices from the past 24 months of Ritchie Bros. auctions. We've sold more than 500,000 items in the past two years – making rbauction.com the most comprehensive source of worldwide equipment values.
Results in the currency of your choice
Auction results and selling prices are now available in the currency of your choice, as well as the currency of the auction.
One auction calendar, filtered by you
We've combined all of our auctions onto one calendar and given you the ability to decide which auctions are shown. You can filter by industry and region, depending on your interests.
Better access to the auction catalog
You'll see a link to View Catalog on the auction calendar as soon as an auction has gone to catalog (i.e. when lot numbers are assigned and the sale order is set). This usually happens 2 – 5 days before the auction starts.
Easier links to online bidding
You will find three links for online bidding on the auction calendar: Register, Bid Now! and View Now! – making it easier for you to register and bid online.
Real-time auction information
You can now follow our auctions without launching the online bidding software: one glance at the auction calendar and you'll see which lots are currently being sold at our auctions worldwide.
Integrated Google maps
Find the auction site – or a nearby hotel or airport – with Google maps, now integrated into each auction location page.
