About Us

KBID Auction Center


In 2003, K-BID Online Auctions began with a simple goal: combine the energy and excitement of live in-person auctions with cutting-edge technology to create the best possible auction experience, for both buyers and sellers.

Since that time, K-BID.com has evolved from a simple website where a handful of staff members conducted an auction or two each week to the “auction site” of choice for more than 200,000 bidders and a growing national network of independent affiliates.

Why do so many choose K-BID.com?

  •   Trust comes first. Trust takes years to build and only seconds to destroy. That’s why we work so hard to remain true to our core values of integrity, quality and transparency. These values influence every business decision made and serve as fundamental requirements for the auctions conducted by K-BID Affiliates.
  •   Easy to use. K-BID’s auction software has been designed with real people in mind. In fact, our users helped shape many of K-BID’s most popular features, including dashboards that make it easy to keep track of items, bids and invoices, and an advanced search function that enables bidders to find the exact items they want within the exact distance they’re willing to travel.
  •   Convenience. K-BID offers anytime/anywhere bidding from a variety of desktop and mobile devices.
  •   Peace of mind. Mandatory inspection periods for each auction give bidders the assurance that only physical review can provide, and with full disclosure a requirement, all K-BID affiliates work hard to provide realistic photos and detailed descriptions of all items.
  •   Variety of assets. Variety is not only the spice of life, it’s what makes every K-BID auction a pleasant surprise. From trucks to tractors to commercial equipment, from trinkets to collectibles, from the mundane to the obscure, hundreds of new items are added each day. What better to attract buyers and keep them coming back?
  •   A new approach to selling. Everyone from stay-at-home moms to solopreneurs, from bankers to small business owners, from city administrators to corporate executives now has an efficient and effective way to sell what they no longer need. It’s easy, with the help of our growing nationwide network of independent affiliates. They handle all aspects of the auction, from contracting with sellers to taking photos, from writing descriptions to setting up displays, from collecting invoice payments to shipping sold merchandise.
