OUR APPROACH

It is our mission to apply the auction method in a unique and effective way that helps grow new markets, rebuild communities, and raise money for great causes. By supporting our sellers, educating our bidders, and partnering with national industry experts, we strive to be the leading provider of auction resources around the nation.

 

What Sets Us Apart?

The auction industry may be small but the people in it are mighty; we’re lucky to be friends with most of them and work with partners around the country on a regular basis. This gives us a foothold in the market and the ability to offer our services on a national level. Unlike most auction companies who specialize in only one region or one type of auction, we have diversified our team and affiliates in order to offer expertise in several arenas spreading across the U.S. Not to mention, we like to have fun!

 

Bringing the Past into the Future

Our philosophy is defined by merging the timeless fundamentals of the auction industry with innovative marketing techniques and user-friendly bidding technology. At AMCbid, we have preserved the practices of the auction industry through handshakes, friendships, and the live auction “bid-call” and brought them into today’s modern world by offering sophisticated auction software that supports online and mobile bidding.
