We register hundreds of thousands of bidders at our unreserved auctions each year because at Ritchie Bros., we do auctions right.


We offer a huge selection of equipment at each auction. You can visit the site to inspect and test different items before you bid.


And because every Ritchie Bros. auction is unreserved, you know that every item will be sold to a new owner on auction day.

Strictly unreserved auctions: no minimum bids or reserve prices

Every item is sold to the highest bidder on auction day.

Always open to the public

Anyone can register to bid at our auctions, at no charge.

Bidders set the prices, not sellers

We strictly forbid owners from bidding on their own items. That means there's no artificial price manipulation, so you can confidently buy at fair market value.

Huge selection of trucks and equipment

Some people describe our auctions as "equipment supermarkets". We sell more used equipment than anyone, so you'll find exactly what you're looking for in an upcoming auction.

Ability to inspect, test and compare equipment

You'll find detailed equipment information and close-up photos on our website. You can also inspect, test and compare equipment (or have a mechanic do it for you) at the auction site before you buy.

Convenient bidding options

Clear title – or your money back

We identify and arrange for the release of any liens or encumbrances on the equipment we sell. If we can't deliver clear title, we offer the buyer a full refund of the purchase price.
