Ritchie Bros. – a proud partner of the Victorian Farmers Federation

Ritchie Bros. is a proud partner of the Victorian Farmers Federation

Ritchie Bros. has been in the auction business for more than 55 years, helping thousands of customers sell their equipment to the world each year. We hold regular auctions at 44 sites worldwide, including Geelong, VIC and Brisbane, QLD.

Today, we're the world's largest seller of used equipment, including farm equipment. Tens of thousands of farming items pass through our auctions each year: tractors and combines, seeding and harvesting equipment, trucks and trailers. We sold more than $400 million of farm equipment in just 2015.

20 years of equipment auctions in Australia

In 2016, Ritchie Bros. is celebrating 20 years of conducting auctions in Australia. To help celebrate our 20th anniversary in Australia we established a partnership with the Victorian Farmers Federation.

For a limited time, VFF members will enjoy a discount when they sell equipment at our auctions in Australia.

Selling farm equipment with Ritchie Bros.

There's nothing in the world like a Ritchie Bros. auction. Every auction is unreserved, with no minimum bids or reserve prices. That commitment attracts buyers from far and wide to every auction—in 2015, we registered more than 14,000 bidders at our Australian auctions.

Buyers also value the huge selection of equipment; the ability to test and inspect before they buy; and conveniences like online bidding, financing, shipping services, and more.

"I go to a lot of auctions – perhaps one a month, all over Australia," said one customer in Victoria. "But I'd never been to one like this. It was professional, the gear was presented well, it was unreserved, there was no nonsense. You go to other auctions and there are maybe one hundred people. You go to a Ritchie Bros. auction and there are two thousand. What does that tell you?"

The participation of competing buyers from across Australia and beyond means sellers get the best possible returns on auction day.

Sellers also come back to us time and again because we deliver:

  • the industry's best marketing – finding people that are willing to pay top dollar for your equipment takes time, expertise and direct access to qualified buyers; that's what we do best
  • hassle-free, all-inclusive service – we take care of everything, from marketing and handling buyer inquiries to collecting payments and managing any post-sale issues
  • certainty of sale – every item sells on auction day, so you can plan for your business
