EDMONTON, AB (April 15, 2019) – Every April the Ritchie Bros. yard in Edmonton fills up for its huge annual spring auction, featuring equipment from hundreds of companies across Western Canada. If you need it, Ritchie Bros. probably has it.

"We have an amazing selection of equipment—growing every day—so in order to ensure a safe and time efficient sale for our customers we have added a fifth day to the event," said Trent Vandenberghe, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. "Our April and October events are usually our biggest of the year, aligning with the changing of the seasons—this year is no different. We encourage bidders to visit our website early, find what items their interested in and then come down to the site and inspect it for themselves. As always, everything will sell, without minimum bids or reserve prices."

More than 1,200 consignors will be selling equipment in the Edmonton auction, including complete dispersals for Harpoon Energy, a Red Deer, AB-based oilfield surface rental company, and Schur Trucking, a Nisku, AB-based oilfield transportation company.

"We are selling 300 assets in the Edmonton auction with most of it being 2012 or newer models, well-maintained by our in-house service techs," said Dave Roberts, Owner of Harpoon Energy. "We have been doing business with Ritchie Bros. for 25 years. They get us great results with their worldwide reach, but there are almost always deals to be had, which keeps the buyers coming back."

"I think the Edmonton April auction is the best sale of the year," said Murray Schur, Owner and President of Schur Trucking. "We have more than 375 items to sell and with Ritchie Bros. we can sell it all in one go. Most of it is low-hour gear and we've spent the time prepping it for sale, making sure it's all ready to go to work for new owners come auction day."
