Welcome to BidSpotter.com: The Industrial & Commercial Equipment Marketplace. We sell more than 300K+ Industrial & Commercial assets every year, from over 300+ auctioneers.
We have two different types of auctions that we host:
Live Auctions connect you to the auction as it happens. BidSpotter.com provides you with live audio and video feed of the auction as it takes place, as well as the ability to bid remotely, from anywhere!
Timed Auctions are online-only and take place without an auctioneer calling the sale. Instead, all lots have a set start and end time for bidding. Whoever has the highest bid by the end of the timeframe wins the lot.
So how does it all work?
If you know what you’re looking for, simply type it into the Search Box on the homepage, or at the top of any page on BidSpotter.com.
You can also browse through our categories using the Browse by Category option at the top of every page. Use the filters on the left side of the screen to continue to hone your search.
Once you find items you’re interested in, you can add them to your Watch List to review later, from your My BidSpotter account page.
Not seeing what you’re looking for? Set up an Auction Alert for those assets and we’ll notify you via email when new items that match your search are added to the site.
Once you’ve found the item you want to purchase – it’s time to get bidding! You have a few options here, depending on the type of auction:
Place a Max Bid: Let us know the highest amount you’re willing to pay and our system will bid for you, keeping you in the lead up to your max bid amount. If you’re unable to attend the auction, this is the most convenient way to bid at auction. Read more about Max Bids here.
Bid Live: Connect to a live auction through BidSpotter.com and bid remotely. With live audio and video feed, you’re able to experience the auction from the comfort of your own home or office. Read more about Live Bidding here.
When bidding, we’ll notify you via email if you’re no longer the lead that way you have time to increase your max bid.
For the best chance at winning the asset you want we recommend logging in and participating as the live auction is taking place.
Once the win is verified, the auctioneer will send you an invoice with details on your items, and any other information regarding payment and delivery.
Remember, you can keep track of all your wins by logging in to My BidSpotter. Feel free to view them at any time.
