Buying at auction

1 After determining the auction you plan to attend, order the brochure for that event or study the inventory online.

2 Establish your financing: a check with a bank’s guarantee, a wire transfer, a cashier’s check or, in the case of Ritchie Bros., on-site financing through CitiCapital.

3 Show up early enough at the auction to inspect equipment and register for a bid number.
