What is LiveAuctioneers?
Founded in 2002, LiveAuctioneers broadcasts thousands of live auctions annually, presenting millions of items for live bidding.
Our auctions allow unprecedented access to unique items, allowing savvy bidders to land desired items at very desirable prices. Leave an absentee bid, or fully engage in the live-auction action—it's up to you. All bidding takes place via a secure bidder network, which keeps your maximum bids for upcoming sales private until the item is opened on the day of the sale.
LiveAuctioneers revolutionized the industry from the start. In 2002, the NYC-based company formed a marketing partnership with eBay to introduce eBay Live Auctions. This alliance of LiveAuctioneers and eBay enabled Auction Houses worldwide to go online with their live sales—a development that changed the auction business forever. In 2009, the debut of LiveAuctioneers' iPhone and Android apps, with live-bidding capabilities, opened up a new mobile pipeline to bid anytime, from anywhere, with complete anonymity. Since then, LiveAuctioneers has been the first to engage bidders with live streaming video, easy online payments, personalized search alerts, and more.
Now in its second decade, LiveAuctioneers is the Web's leading auction-related site, with millions of qualified bidders. LiveAuctioneers also provides a constant stream of industry intelligence to auctioneers, collectors, museums, appraisers, consignors and more
