5,900+ items to sell in Ritchie Bros. first-ever Northeast Regional auction next week

Featuring equipment from four locations, all items will be sold with online bidding only

NORTH EAST, MD (June 17, 2020) – For the past few months Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers has been conducting its site auctions as online-only bidding events and seen bidder registrations hit record levels. Next week, on June 23 – 24, the company will combine equipment from four different locations—North East, MD; North Franklin, CT; Pittsburgh, PA; and Williamsport, PA—into one big online-only auction with 5,900+ items.

"We would expect to see a lot of buyer crossover if we held these as individual events, so it just makes sense to combine for the convenience of our buyers and benefit of our sellers," said Dave Kreis, Sales Director, Ritchie Bros. "With 5,900+ items from 800+ owners, this will be one of our biggest events ever in this part of the country. We already have a ton of late-model, well-maintained equipment and trucks, with more being added every day. We encourage interested bidders to get online, get registered, and be ready to bid come auction day—you won't want to miss this one!"

Equipment highlights in the June 23 – 24 Northeast auction include 440+ truck tractors, 135+ excavators, 130+ aerial work platforms (boom & scissor lifts), 130+ dump trucks, 110+ compactors, 95+ flatbed trucks, 70+ loaders, 60+ skid steers, and more. All items will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices. Visit rbauction.com for more info.
