Vancouver. B.C. – Ritchie Bros. Inspection Services completed more than 600,000 equipment inspections in 2020, taking over 15 million photos and analyzing hundreds of thousands of oil samples in its in-house fluid analysis lab. Ritchie Bros. inspects tens of thousands of equipment items each month, in preparation for sale in one of its live or online auctions with Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, weekly online marketplaces at IronPlanet, and a daily reserved solution in Marketplace-E.

The company also inspects tens of thousands of additional items to support customers for lease returns, financing, trade-ins, repossessions, private sale, asset verification, and more.

Ritchie Bros. is much more than auctions today.
