Orlando Day Five: trucks roll through the finish line

Orlando 2017 wraps with big wheel auctioning

Ritchie Bros.' massive five-day Orlando February 2017 auction is chugging to the end, but not without a big sale for those who haul on those long highways. Day Five features close to 500 truck tractors each available to the highest bidder, with no reserve price or minimum bids. This promises to be a big wheel blowout to close the auction.

You've still got time to get in on the auction action. Even if you don't live in Orlando you can bid online either through our website or our convenient app.

Trucks, trucks, and lots more trucks.

Here's a video that puts the Orlando truck experience into high gear! Watch and be mowed over by the massive selection of heavy haulers.

We're out in the yard talking with customers about their experiences with Ritchie Bros. and here's what one seller had to say:

"The Ritchie Bros. Orlando auction is the quintessential kick-off for the auction season—usually how things do here is an indication for how the rest of the year is going to go, so that was one of the main reasons we consolidated everything here. We were very happy with the auction outcomes; they exceeded our expectations. It was a great event and we are optimistic that the rest of 2017 will continue this trend."
Chrissy Wolfe, Equipment Procurement & Disposal Manager for Walsh Construction.
