Ritchie Bros. Launches New Online Bidding Interface

Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, Vancouver, British Columbia, launched its new online bidding interface this week at World of Concrete 2009 in Las Vegas, Nev. Equipment buyers had their first opportunity to use the redesigned and enhanced interface today when Ritchie Bros. conducted its first auction of 2009 at the show to raise funds for educational programs. The benefit auction supports the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program expansion.

"Our new online bidding interface offers more features and more flexibility, including the ability to follow multiple auctions in real time, making it easier to bid in many auctions on the same day,” said Peter Blake, Ritchie Bros. CEO. “Online bidding at a Ritchie Bros. auction will be closer to the experience of bidding in person than ever before.”

Tomorrow, Ritchie Bros. will sell more than 1,200 equipment items for the construction, transportation and other industries during a one-day unreserved public auction at its Las Vegas auction site. For more information, visit www.rbauction.com.
