More than 1,700 pieces of industrial machinery are up for grabs at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers’ largest ever auction in Chilliwack next Wednesday.

And if you can’t make it down to see it live, the Selling Big TV crew will be there filming it all.

“This is the most equipment we’ve ever sold in Chilliwack and the Selling Big TV crew will be on site to catch all the action,” said Adam Pruss, regional sales manager for Ritchie Bros.

After a successful first season on Cottage Life, the documentary television series Selling Big, produced by Mountain Road Productions and featuring Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, is now filming season two.

Selling Big focuses on auction customers, Ritchie Bros. employees and a whole lot of big machinery with big price tags.

Highlights in the auction on May 28 in Chilliwack include a large selection of late model crushing equipment, as well as construction, transportation, forestry and agriculture equipment.

Every item in the auction will be sold without minimum bids or reserve prices. Bids in the auction can be made live in person at the auction site, online in real time at www.rbauction.com and by proxy.
