New UK auction location in Maltby, Rotherham

We're excited to announce we'll be holding our next UK auctions in Maltby, Rotherham (South Yorkshire). This new location at the former Maltby Main colliery will be our UK head office and auction site, replacing Donington Park.

Est. 1958, Ritchie Bros. is the world's largest industrial auctioneer. We conduct hundreds of unreserved public plant auctions each year, including regular auctions at our site in Donington Park, UK.

At Ritchie Bros. auctions, every item is sold to the highest bidder on auction day, with no minimum bids or reserve prices. Bid with confidence knowing buyers set the prices, not sellers, on the new and used plant machinery, heavy equipment, tractors and trucks you need.

Upcoming auctions in Europe & the Middle East
