Ritchie: 6,000 items up for bid

|  January 28, 2010 |

Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, gearing up for its massive annual auction in Orlando, Florida, says it will sell close to 6,000 items Feb. 15-19. The auction will feature equipment from more than 400 consignors, including Ring Power, Kelly Tractor and Young’s Contracting.

Last year, the auction attracted  7,600 bidders from 75 countries. Out-of-state bidders bought about 80 percent of the equipment, including 30 percent purchased by bidders outside the United States.

To help new customers, Ritchie is offering “How to Bid” seminars at its Orlando auction site prior to the auction.
