6,500+ bidders from 34 countries
Today, we are building bigger and better events with our regional auction format, bringing together more consignors and buyers to provide more selection and increased competition. Last week, we held regional auctions on both sides of the border, with US$65+ million of equipment sold in our U.S. Rocky Mountain Event and CA$35+ million (US$27+ million) sold in our Canadian B.C. Regional Event—both of which were new regional records.
"Our Chilliwack yard usually fills up quick, so it's great that we could add hundreds of additional items from elsewhere in B.C. and store them at yards in Prince George and Kamloops," said Pat Elliott, Regional Sales Manager (Chilliwack), Ritchie Bros.
"We built the auction around a great package of forestry equipment and achieved excellent results on the late-model gear. Good quality, low-hour equipment continues to bring big money, so I encourage interested sellers to contact us to take advantage today."
Approximately 94% of the equipment sold in the B.C. Regional Event was sold to Canadians, including 71% sold to B.C. buyers. The remaining 6% was sold to international buyers from as far away as Guatemala, Egypt, and Thailand.
Five big sellers from B.C.
More than 2,100 items were sold for approximately 500 consignors in the B.C. Regional Event, with equipment stored at three locations across the province. The May 24 – 25 auction was B.C.'s biggest ever in terms of gross transaction value and attracted 6,500+ bidders from 34 countries.
