Our online Timed Auctions: now more time to bid, more opportunity!

New website features Commenti

Upgrades and improvements make Timed Auctions easier and more convenient.

We've recently made some enhancements to our online Timed Auction system (automated bidding with no auctioneer) to make it even easier to use, and to give you more opportunity to bid on items you want including equipment attachments, consumer goods and other smaller items.

Some of the new features we've introduced:

Time Extensions give you more opportunity to bid on items. When time is running out on an item, any new bids placed will cause additional time to be added to the closing time of the lot. This gives bidders an opportunity to react and place another bid if they wish.

We've also introduced a new countdown to indicate that bidding is closing on an item. We've switched to a visual version of our traditional “Going once….going twice…going three times” before bidding closes and an item is sold.

Our Timed Auction system is now optimized for use on mobile devices. Our system is now fully responsive so it displays on smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices to help you bid from anywhere.

Bid on equipment for sale via your mobile device or computer.

Learn more about bidding in Timed Auctions on our website.

We'd love to hear what you think about the changes! Reach out to us at survey@rbauction.com
