Through flexibility, conveniency, and the availability of a wide range of products, live bid auction in Texas have become an increasingly popular and efficient e-commerce method of facilitating the participation of Internet users in trading activities. Although online auctions in Texas are not appropriate for every type of purchase and operate similarly to traditional sales channels, they are thought to be an effective tool for consumers, sellers, saving time, streamlining the bidding process, and enabling a global selection of suppliers and products.
Traditional public auctions in Texas are held on-site and are known as live bid auction, and in today’s era most live auctions use a simulcast online auction bidding platforms such as ProxiBid, AuctionTime, Equipment Facts, and others, for the convenience of consumers. Kiefer Auctioneers utilizes this type of an auction format and have seen much success by doing this. However, not all auction companies offer this, as it is more costly to the auction company. Kiefer Auctioneers understands the importance of what you put in, is what you will get back, and we want the most advantageous return for our clients.
In todays world, online technology is so important while increasing the vast marketability of products and items. This is great for both our buyers from afar, and our sellers have a greater reach of potential buyers. Bridging this element into the traditional live on-site auction, has become beneficial to all parties involved. Additionally, our auction company in Texas provides online timed auctions, where there isn’t people on-site bidding simultaneously against others online. An online timed auction is just what it implies. Once the auction starts, the countdown timer starts and the bidding begins back and forth between online consumers for a certain product.
It is important to know and understand that when selecting an live bid auction company, you need to make sure the auction company has a valid and licensed auctioneer, to avoid fraud and unethical business practices and tactics. Kiefer Auctioneers values themselves on honesty, transparency, integrity, and communication.
Even though companies like eBay have been around for 10 to 15 years, there is very little auction data that has been collected and made publicly available or analyzed to the knowledge of others. Before making any claims about the amount of fraud in online auctions, the nature and structure must be understood and furthermost, one should know and use a respectable licensed auction company to avoid any type of fraud and unforeseen liability issues.
The success of a good auction, is dependent on the clients goal and objectives as well as the auction company meeting and achieving their clients goals to the best of their ability within realistic expectations. Regardless, of whether you have a live bid auction with simulcast online bidding or a timed online auction, Kiefer Auctioneers will help guide you to the best type of auction for your auction items.
