Ritchie Bros. to hold first Scottish auction


Bids are expected from around the world when auctioneer Ritchie Bros. holds its first-ever auction in Scotland next week.

More than 250 items of equipment and trucks from Irish company MW Hire Group and other consignors will be available and consignments for the sale next Tuesday (October 16) are still being accepted. There will be no minimum bids or reserve prices with everything going to the highest bidders on the day.

Rupert Craven, Ritchie’s sales director for UK & Ireland, said: “The auction features an excellent mix of well-maintained ex-rental equipment used in house building and civil engineering projects, including 50+ Cummins, Himoinsa and Cat generators. As always, the auction is open to the public, and we expect participants from across Scotland and around the world.”

Brien Daly, sales and equipment purchasing manager at MW, commented: “We chose to sell with Ritchie Bros. because with 60 years of expertise in the market, they offer great equipment knowledge, and because they allow customers to bid onsite and online our equipment can sell to buyers around the globe. With the main focus on our generator business and a great selection of low-hour machines, there will certainly be something for everyone in this auction.”

The auction will be held in Irvine and equipment to be sold will include excavators, telehandlers, rollers, dumpers, and access equipment. Bids can be made in person, online in real time and by proxy. Click here for more details.
