uShip.com is the official online transportation solution for the world’s largest-ever industrial auction, held February 16-21 in Orlando, Florida. The event is conducted by Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers and features more than 7,000 items up for bid. The auction facility spans more than 200 acres and is packed full with tractors, cranes, excavators, forklifts, skid steer loaders, rock trucks, boom trucks and other equipment used in the construction, transportation, agricultural, material handling, mining, forestry, petroleum and marine industries.
Every item will be sold to the highest bidder on auction day, with no minimum bids or reserve prices. The event is expected to attract more than 6000 bidders from more than 70 countries and will likely generate some $200 million in proceeds.
“There’s no other auction in the world like the Ritchie Bros. February Orlando auction, in terms of its sheer size and the amount and variety of equipment being sold – and there’s no better place to find the equipment you need at the price you’re willing to pay,” said Gary Seybold, Ritchie Bros. Divisional Manager.” The first piece of equipment arrived at the site last October and we are still accepting consignments.”
The auction will serve as a debut for uShip.com’s Heavy Equipment Category and company representatives will be on-site to meet with specialized heavy haulers and auction buyers to introduce the site and help
ensure everything goes smoothly. Auction attendees can get free advance shipping price estimates for equipment they are interested in purchasing. Auction purchases can be listed for transport with just a few clicks and heavy haulers will place competitive bids to win the job, resulting in lower shipping prices and efficient service from high-quality transporters.
