Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers and Copart run heavy-duty truck auctions. Both firms offer online bidding, and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers also accepts on-site and proxy bids. Auction winners are responsible for picking up the merchandise or arranging shipment.
In addition to heavy-duty trucks, Copart facilitates auctions of passenger cars, all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles, pickup trucks and dirt bikes. The company also sells boats, recreational vehicles and trailers. Public bidders may bid on any vehicle in any auction, although bids on roughly half of Copart's inventory require a driver's license.
Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers operates auctions for items such as heavy trucks, construction vehicles, mining equipment, buses and aircraft. The company encourages buyers to visit auction sites to view prospective purchases before bidding.
