How does the auction process work?

*click a section to expand*

The auctions published on K-BID.com are conducted and managed by independent auction companies (affiliates). As a potential seller, your first step is to determine which affiliate will best meet your needs. The factors most often used to narrow the possibilities are location, asset-type, auction history, and experience. Choosing the right affiliate is usually based on the affiliate’s contract language, experience, and/or the seller’s level of comfort with the affiliate’s overall business practices. You can find a map of current affiliates to work with here.

When you contact an affiliate to sell your assets, be prepared to provide detailed information about the items you want to sell, as well as the logistics of the project. After the affiliate understands the scope of your needs, you’ll be presented with a consignment contract, outlining the terms for selling the assets. Affiliates typically charge on a commission and/or fee basis depending on a variety of factors. Important Note: K-BID acts solely as a marketing venue and is not a party to any agreement with auction sellers.
Affiliates manage the entire auction creation process by organizing items and determining the best way to present them to buyers. They use pictures, videos, and descriptions to give potential buyers the information they need to bid. Full disclosure is an expectation and the best way to gain trust with buyers and ultimately - increase bid prices. During this stage, inspection and removal logistics will be determined to ensure a smooth and hassle-free removal.
The typical auction on K-BID is active (open for bidding) for 7-14 days. Bids are accepted 24/7 while the auction is active. This timeframe gives us ample time to start our marketing campaigns and reach tons of potential buyers! Affiliates are responsible for fielding all questions and coordinating the inspection period. The inspection period is important as it gives buyers an opportunity to see, touch and ask questions about the auction items. Important Note: In an effort to maintain trust and integrity with buyers, K-BID strictly prohibits sellers or their agents to bid on their own assets.
This is when all the action happens! Auctions/lots close at a predetermined date and time. K-BID employs an overtime bidding process where auction items stay open for 3 minutes after the last bid was placed. This allows us to emulate the live auction experience, giving bidders the opportunity to battle for the items they’re interested in. When the auction closes, winning bidders receive an invoice, and the affiliate begins preparing for the auction removal. Affiliates are responsible for managing the auction removal – collecting invoice payments and coordinating the safe removal of assets from the auction location.Fun Fact: 50% or more of the total bids on online auctions occur within the last 24 hours!
Approximately two weeks after the auction closes, you can expect to receive a settlement check and a detailed settlement sheet listing the assets you consigned and the sale price of each item. The settlement sheet will also show the commission rate/fees charged by the affiliate. If a winning bidder fails to honor his bid on an asset, the settlement sheet will indicate the sales price for the item was $0. It is your decision whether or not you want the affiliate to relist the asset on a future auction.
