Join our live plant auctions at the Maltby Colliery in Maltby, Rotherham

Since 2012, Donington Park has hosted many Ritchie Bros auctions. Over the years our auctions have grown in size & we outgrew the space we had at Donington Park. At the beginning of 2019 we moved to our new site at the former Maltby Colliery near Rotherham. This larger space will house our UK head office, along with a permanent auction theatre facility to host our equipment auctions.

As one of the largest industrial auctioneers in the United Kingdom, we sell thousands of items to the highest bidder on auction day. Plant machinery, access equipment and trucks are only a few examples of what we sell in our auctions. View our current inventory now.
