700+ owners will be selling equipment and trucks in Ritchie Bros.' Oct. 24 – 27 unreserved auction

EDMONTON, Oct. 12, 2017 /CNW/ - As seasons change so do equipment fleets for many companies. Summer work is done, winter work is on its way; making October the perfect time to upgrade your gear.

Every October, Ritchie Bros. holds one of its largest auctions of the year in Edmonton, with equipment from every industry. In two weeks, Ritchie Bros. will sell more than 4,900 equipment items and trucks over four days (October 24 – 27, 2017). Thousands of bidders are expected to participate in person or online.     

"We have a lot of big-ticket items to sell in our auction this month; all of it selling unreserved," said Trent Vandenberghe, Sales Director, Ritchie Bros. "Heavy and light construction equipment, transport trucks, oil and gas equipment, farm equipment, drilling and pipeline gear, as well as RVs, automobiles, snowmobiles, and more. We will have something for everyone."

More than 700 owners will sell equipment in the October Edmonton auction, including a major realignment for Boss Truck Service (1989) Ltd., a Peers, AB-based oil and water hauler.

"We're downsizing and came to Ritchie Bros. because they are the best—providing professional, one-on-one service," said Darren Shantz, owner of Boss Truck Service. "Our fleet of trucks and tanker trailers are top notch. Every seven days our fleet was washed and serviced by a certified mechanic. It's all ready to go and be put to work by a new company."
