About Municibid

Established: 2006 | Headquarters: Philadelphia | Regional Office: Santa Monica, CA

Sell Anything!

Vehicles, heavy equipment, tools, airplanes, sailboats, IT equipment, kitchen equipment, furniture, ANYTHING! You name it, you can sell it. Bidding is open to the public (US & Canada). You may be surprised how much they'll spend and how far they'll come! There are no minimums or maximums for what you can sell.


“We used to sell a single axle dump truck through the conventional bid process and get $4,000 to $5,000, now with Municibid we can see that number jump to $8,000-$10,000. It really pays to use a simple auction system like Municibid.”

Always free for sellers

You always keep 100% of your proceeds. You never send us money. Our bidders appreciate our consistent pricing model across all of our selling agencies. Bidders pay us a competitive buyer's fee of 8% and then pay you 100% of the winning bid. It's very clear and easy.


“Municibid is free, it’s user friendly, and we have increased our sale prices by nearly 175%. It’s a no brainer!”
