For the most successful auction experience, take the time to study the auction items ahead of time. To find the equipment you are looking for start by searching our upcoming auctions by auction name or by equipment type. You will find numerous photos, detailed item information, auction terms, auction day schedule and more. Unsure what an item may sell for? Search our past auction results and compare similar units to help determine an estimate of value. Then feel free to call the seller or the auction coordinator for more information or to preview the items prior to auction day.
If you were the successful bidder on one or more items, there are several steps you may need to take after the auction.
Live Onsite Bidding - On-site bidding is the traditional bidding method. If you've never attended an auction, you're missing out on a great time! Auctions are exciting and most importantly, auctions are fun! Before you attend an auction you can preview auction items online OR visit the auction site ahead of time to inspect items in person. On auction day, arrive at the auction site, register to bid, check the auction schedule, meet the sellers & auction crew, join the auction and start bidding.
Live Online Bidding - If you are unable to attend auction day, online bidding allows you to take part in the auction from any location using your computer or mobile device. To register and bid online, you simply need to create a free account at rbauction.com first. Then you can register to bid online for any auction on the calendar. You may be required to place a refundable bid deposit equivalent to 25% of the amount you want to spend or your maximum bidding limit. On auction day, sign in to your account and click "Bid now". And to bid from a mobile phone or tablet, you will need to download the free Ritchie Bros. app.
