It's all about the customer
Hundreds of owners will be selling equipment, trucks, and farmland through Ritchie Bros. this spring, including Dan and Dale Mehlen of Mehlen Farms Ltd., a decades-old, family-run farm.
Together the brothers will sell close to 300 items on March 22 when Ritchie Bros. visits their farm in Foremost, AB; highlights include late-model tractors, combines, sprayers, air drills, and more.
"We've always tried to run low-hour equipment, maintaining it meticulously to ensure we maximized each piece of equipment's value," said Dale Mehlen. "When it came time to sell it all there was no question who we would choose—it was always going to be Ritchie Bros."
