July 4, 2016 – The 50,000-plus members of the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) can now more easily sell their surplus heavy equipment, trucks and other assets—and reach the largest global market of buyers.

Ritchie Bros. was recently awarded an auction services contract from NJPA, a municipal contracting agency operating in Canada and the United States that includes government, education and non-profit agencies. As such, NJPA members will now be able to sell through Ritchie Bros. unreserved auctions and its EquipmentOne marketplace without an RFP process, helping them sell equipment, trucks and other assets faster and more efficiently than ever before.

“We are honoured to be listed as one of the preferred providers to NJPA members,” said Terry Dolan, president, U.S. and Latin America, Ritchie Bros. “We are uniquely positioned to be the premier asset disposition company for government, education and non-profit agencies in Canada and the United States. We have been selling assets for many of these agencies for years and now, as a preferred provider, look forward to serving more of them, better than ever before.”

“With Ritchie Bros., NJPA members can sell when they want, how they want and where they want,” said Dolan. “We can offer the 50,000-plus NJPA members multiple selling channels with flexible options, hands-on local service, world-class global marketing, plus 55-plus years of proven results in the equipment auction business. Our live unreserved auctions, with both onsite and online bidding, provide certainty of sale and global market value. While our EquipmentOne, AuctionsByGov and SalvageSale online auction platforms offer increased control over the selling process.”
