HiBid & Auction Flex Roll Out Local State Website Portals For Auctioneers & Bidders

OCALA, Florida — July 26, 2017

HiBid—Auction Flex's integrated web service and internet bidding solution for auction participants—announces the rollout of HiBid website portals for all 50 states and three additional Canadian provinces. These websites coordinate auctioneers and sales geographically, making it easier for bidders to find auction houses and sales nearby.

HiBid links real auctions with real auction bidders. Auctioneers can run online absentee bidding, online only timed auctions, or webcast live streaming auctions. State portals provide the added benefit of driving local bidders to local auctions, generating more successful sales overall. “HiBid’s unique advantage is that it enables auction houses to promote their own brand and drive their own bidders, with the added backbone of our state and worldwide bidding platforms,” explains Auction Flex’s Auction Support Manager Kris Kennedy. “We’ve created these state portals to help our auctioneers connect with more local bidders looking for local auctions. Our state portals combined with our worldwide HiBid portal help bring our auctioneers the most bidders possible to their sales.”

These rollouts come on the heels of the strategic alliance formed in March 2017 between Auction Flex and, a leading online auction platform primarily serving buyers and sellers in the construction, agriculture, and transportation industries.
