Ritchie Bros. is launching its first permanent yard in Drury, Auckland

Ritchie Bros. is launching its first permanent yard in New Zealand, with the upcoming IronPlanet Auction to be held at their Drury yard in Auckland on 13 April 2023.

"We are thrilled to launch our first permanent yard in New Zealand," says Dom McGlinchey, regional sales manager at Ritchie Bros.

"This facility will provide a convenient location for buyers and sellers to transact machinery, while also allowing us to expand our presence in the local market."


Established in 1958, Ritchie Bros. is a global asset management and disposition company, offering customers end-to-end solutions for buying and selling used heavy equipment, trucks, and other assets across a number of sectors, including construction, transportation, agriculture, energy, oil and gas, mining, and forestry.

"By offering a wide range of machinery for buyers to inspect on-site and bid online, we’re making it easier than ever for sellers to reach a large pool of potential buyers and get the best possible value for their assets," says Dom.

"This new facility will provide a platform for New Zealanders to sell their machinery to a global audience, opening up new opportunities for international trade.

"We believe that the launch of our new permanent yard in New Zealand demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible service to our customers. We’re also committed to supporting the local economy and creating new job opportunities as we expand our presence in New Zealand."

For buyers, the upcoming New Zealand IronPlanet Auction on 13 April provides a chance to purchase high-quality machinery at a great value. Bidders can inspect the machinery at the yard at 25b Tegal Road, Drury, and then bid online.

"With our online bidding platform, buyers can bid from the comfort of their own home, making the purchase process simple and convenient."

For support with registration and bidding, interested buyers can call 0800-722-828 or for international enquiries, call +61-7-3382-4444.
