Ritchie Brothers auctions a wide array of equipment including dump trucks, drills, excavators and crawler dumpers. The auction house sells everything from construction equipment to vehicles and drilling equipment. Bidding locations range outside of the country of Canada to places such as the United Kingdom.
Each item that the auction house has for sale is listed on the company's website with relevant product information. Customers can get information on the date that the auction for a specific item is coming up, see bidding options and view images of the equipment. Customers have three ways to bid on items. They can bid at the selling location, online or through a proxy on the day of the auction.
Items such as dump trucks or other drivable equipment have the vehicle identification number available for viewing, along with additional information such as the number of axles and how many engine hours are on the machine. The options regarding the information shown for each piece of equipment differ depending on the type of machine and the features on each. Whereas a truck may have specifications for an operator's cab and different control features listed, a stock trailer listing might contain information on the body style, the width and length of the trailer and the type of suspension or undercarriage along with any information on accessories that come with it.
