INTRODUCING A GAME CHANGING AUCTION COMPANY
Continuous application of technology to deliver you more efficient and effective on-line auction experiences is a journey in itself. Whether it’s a new mobile application, a superior bidding platform, or innovative on-line product research capabilities, Bid Venues is committed to evolve for your improved access to the best auction technologies.
Bid Venues’ goal is to provide you convenient, secure access to unreserved products not easily obtained elsewhere. Much of our inventory is new but we also accept consignments of distressed, freight damaged and used merchandise conforming to our buyer’s expectations. Our auctions are unreserved and begin with low starting bids.
Integrity in the auction business will strike some experienced bidders as an oxymoron – a contradiction or patina marketing veneer. Nonetheless Bid Venues was founded on this very principle and we believe high integrity business practices integrated with great products accessed through applied technology changes the course of the auction business.

MOST LOTS START AT $5 WITH NO RESERVES
The $5 starting bid is a Bid Venues tradition and we’re bringing it to the new platform, with improvements. In response to our Buyer’s request, the bid increments are gradual and proportional to the bid price. ($5 up to $50, $10 up to $250, etc.)
COMPREHENSIVE PHOTOS & DESCRIPTIONS
We believe that providing detailed and informative Lot presentations is important for both Buyers and Sellers. We take extra time and steps to include attributes such as specification plates, model numbers and dimensions to assist your research.
SELECTION OF GREAT PRODUCTS
We are in constant pursuit of quality and unique products for you and we organize them into Themes and Categories. Too many auction companies randomize cast-off or distressed goods that can’t be liquidated by other means.
MAX BID FEATURE
Our new bidding platform supports a feature that allows you to confidentially place a upper bid limit on each Lot. The system will bid on your behalf, up to the Max Bid that you’ve entered, but only if there is another bidder actually bidding against you.
