OCALA, Fla., Nov. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Online bidding has officially opened for an upcoming largescale vehicle auction from Apple Auctioneering Company of Houston, Texas. The online-only auction hosted by www.HiBid.com features a range of vehicles, including ATVs, motorcycles, sports cars, collectables, sedans, SUVs, light-duty trucks, commercial trucks, and recreational vehicles. HiBid, the leader in internet bidding solutions and webcast live internet bidding, has already opened online bidding for the auction, which is set to close November 20th at 11 a.m. (ET).
HiBid's online portal makes it easy for interested bidders to browse assets currently up for auction, including the 51 vehicles listed in this sale. Listings feature asset details, location, and photos that help buyers get an idea of the vehicle's quality. Bidders can also contact Apple Auctioneering directly to learn more about a specific asset.
Online auctions through HiBid offer flexibility and convenience that benefit participants on both sides of the sale. Companies like Apple Auctioneering are able to set the parameters for virtual auctions with a few simple clicks without incurring the overhead expenses of transporting equipment, staffing, and holding live auctions, which means they can hold smaller sales more often. "We've been using Auction Flex for the last eight years," explains Apple Auctioneering Company's Josh Scully, noting the service's simplicity and value. "We started doing online auctions through HiBid in 2012. The platform is super simple and helps us avoid the overhead costs and inconveniences of live sales. We absolutely love everything about it."
Online auctions also provide a number of benefits for bidders, who have the ability to bid on a specific item or multiple items without the travel expenses and inconveniences of attending live auctions, and are more likely to participate in sales both within and outside their local area. Interested bidders can register to bid for free at HiBid.com and find more information about the assets up for auction—including details and photos—by visiting the catalogue for this auction.
