15,000 online bidders from 64 countries
Our Edmonton team was back at it last week, selling 8,500+ equipment items and trucks for 1,200+ consignors. The three-day online auction attracted close to 15,000 bidders and generated more than CA$70 million (US$56+ million) in gross transaction value.
“We continue to see strong demand for low-hour, well-maintained equipment and trucks,” said Andrew Lutic, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. “It’s the beginning of construction season here in Alberta, so we saw a lot of companies bidding aggressively in hopes of buying new assets to upgrade or fill holes in their fleet.”
Approximately 92% of the equipment in the June 23 – 25 auction was sold to buyers in Canada, including 56% sold to Alberta, 15% to British Columbia, and 9% to Saskatchewan. The remaining 8% of the equipment was sold to International buyers from as far away as Australia, China, and the United Kingdom.
