Ritchie Bros Sets Record at Fort Worth Auction

Ritchie Bros. announced it sold more than $53 million of equipment and trucks at its unreserved public auction in Fort Worth, TX on July 22-23, 2015.

Ritchie said the two-day auction set a new Fort Worth site record for number of lots sold, with more than 4,250 items being sold to bidders around the world, including over 500 trailers, 385 truck tractors, 95 excavators, 90 loader backhoes, 50 compactors, 50 flatbed trucks, 45 boom trucks, 40 crawler tractors and 35 winch tractors.

More than 3,750 people from 53 countries registered to bid in person, online and by proxy.

“We had a tremendous line-up of gear at the auction, and the crowds really turned out to bid,” said Dolan Aucoin, regional sales manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. “Pricing met or exceeded our expectations, especially on good quality, well maintained equipment. Many bidding customers found it difficult to find deals. As usual with Ritchie Bros. unreserved auctions, every item was sold to the highest bidder, with no reserve prices and no minimum bids.”
