auction of 2014 and offering one of the largest selections of oilfield hauling
equipment we've ever seen in Western Canada," said Jim Rotlisberger,
Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. "With oil production
holding steady and gas prices creeping up, many companies are starting to get
busier and looking to upgrade their fleets with new equipment, which has
resulted in a wealth of gear coming to our auction. It will all be sold
completely unreserved, with no reserve prices or minimum bids. Bidders can buy
a piece of equipment, pay for it and put it to work the next day."
