Ritchie Bros. off-site auctions

May 11 – 12 auction attracted 3,950+ online bidders

Last week, we conducted our largest-ever auctions in Ontario and Manitoba, selling CA$71+ million (US$54+ million) of equipment and trucks in Toronto and CA$31+ million (US$24+ million) of assets in Winnipeg.

The May 11 – 12 online Winnipeg, MB auction featured 2,190 equipment items and trucks selling for Borland Construction Inc., one of the oldest and largest heavy construction companies in the region. The May 11 – 12 online auction attracted 3,950+ bidders from 28 countries, with Canadians purchasing 94% of the assets, including 70% sold to Manitobans.

“Borland runs a very diverse operation and has an impeccable maintenance program, resulting in a ton of interest for their late-model equipment,” said Sam Webber, Territory Manager, Ritchie Bros.

“We don’t think anyone could do a better job than Ritchie Bros. in creating demand for our equipment,” said Henry Borger, President, Borland Construction. “Ritchie Bros.’ reputation attracted thousands of bidders from around the globe and their online platform enabled them to bid securely and efficiently.”

“The knowledge and assistance from Ritchie Bros.’ representatives were invaluable. They provide all the key ingredients—bidders, information, and process—for a competitive auction that maximizes returns.”

The momentum built from the massive Borland consignment resulted in an additional auction being added to our calendar on April 27, featuring hundreds of items from Manitoba companies. The online Timed Auction event included a 2014 Elrus CH660 cone crusher that sold for CA$395,000 (US$308,337); a 2014 Caterpillar D6T LGP dozer that sold for CA$365,000 (US$284,919); and a 2009 Kenworth T800 6x4 truck tractor that sold for CA$146,000 (US$113,968).

“We are excited to help Manitoba companies of all sizes and industries and have a multitude of solutions to meet the growing needs of our customer base,” said Ritchie Bros. Regional Sales Manager Jason Huber. “Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any surplus and/or idle assets.”
