Our biggest auction is underway – Orlando, FL Feb 18-23
The first lots rolled across the ramp in front of bidders at 8am sharp, Monday morning, kicking off what is now officially our biggest auction in company history in terms of number of items! This week, thousands of people will be bidding in person and online on a staggering 13,500+ equipment items and trucks.
It’s hard to describe the sheer size of the Orlando auction, but the aerial photo gives you an idea of the scale of the operation. This year, we even expanded our yard to 220 acres in order to accommodate the volume of items. And with the auction in full swing, the yard and auction theatre is a beehive of activity with customers arriving on our free shuttle buses to register, inspect equipment, bid, and of course, socialize. It’s definitely business, but the atmosphere is nothing short of electric.
Bidding onsite? Here are a few reminders.
- This year, customer parking has been moved to 450 Deen Still Rd. (just up the road from the site). A free shuttle bus will transport customers directly to the site and back. Please allow 15 minutes to reach the auction site.
- Don’t forget your picture ID, and your bid book (if you’ve already registered). We also have a special registration area and staff for first-time bidders.
- Food and drinks, including free bottled water, are also available onsite.
- We offer free Wi-Fi, and be sure to download the Ritchie Bros. mobile app so you can search, find and bid while you’re on the go or out in the yard.
- Golf cart service is available to transport you around the equipment yard.
- If you have any questions, ask someone in orange!
