When Covid-19 broke out, Ritchie Bros. pivoted to online auctions, leveraging its popular and easy-to-use Timed Auction system. For this special, episodic event in Moerdijk, Ritchie Bros.’ auctioneers and bid catchers will be returning to Moerdijk to sell a large selection of equipment on the first two days of the auction. Other items will be sold via convenient online Timed Auctions that are open to bid for several days and closing at staggered times during the auction days.
