Next Ritchie Bros. plant equipment auction in the UK on July 14

From time to time all construction companies dispose plant machinery or trucks they no longer need. In order to be successful at selling, they need to be where the buyers are. But those involved in fleet management may recognize that finding a good buyer can be challenging, taking up a lot of time and effort. Working with a specialized company can pay off.


With well over 50 years of experience selling equipment, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers is a leading specialist in the global disposition of plant equipment. The company holds hundreds of auctions every year, operating at over 40 auction locations around the world, including a site in Donington Park (East Midlands). Ritchie Bros. auctions are unreserved and known for attracting qualified bidders from all over the world who join in person and live online. Even with the strong Pound at the moment, interested buyers from Europe and the rest of the world continue to find their ways to the auctions to get hold of the machinery they need. Between the two Donington Park auctions held earlier in February and April, Ritchie Bros. sold close to 2,000 pieces of plant machinery, tractors, trucks and other items, and registered over 1,600 bidders from 70 countries. Roughly forty per cent of the items were purchased by buyers from outside the UK.

Having bidders from different regions and different industries together makes it a powerful place for plant owners to sell the items they no longer need. With the auction company taking care of the details – from marketing to buyer inquiries and payment – the seller can stay focused on running his own business. From surplus to sold, Ritchie Bros. makes it easy to turn iron into cash. Several companies, including from Scotland, have already added machinery and trucks to the upcoming auction in Donington Park, which will be held on the 14th of July.
