EDMONTON, May 10, 2021 "Auction after auction we continue to drive record demand, and our Edmonton event proved that if you have equipment to sell, we have lots of eager buyers waiting," said Trent Vandenberghe, Regional Sales Manger, Ritchie Bros. "We saw particularly strong pricing last week in Edmonton for earthmoving equipment, with skid steers, multi-terrain loaders, excavators, motor scrapers, and dozers leading the way. It's a seller's market right now and we have a ton of great consignment options available, with hybrid onsite/online auctions, weekly online featured events, and Marketplace-E."
