There is no minimum or maximum for what you can sell. Vehicles, heavy equipment, tools, airplanes, sailboats, IT equipment, kitchen equipment, furniture, ANYTHING... you can list it on Municibid. And, nothing is ever too strange or weird. We've seen it all.

"The City Parish is very pleased with the results of the online auction process and the partnership we have with Municibid. This was a new process for us and these results confirm we made the best choice in choosing Municibid as our online expert to guide us during the transition implementing the online auction method."

No fees or costs. Ever.

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 has allowed the Village of Mt. Zion reach a much larger market for selling our surplus items. It’s free, it’s user friendly, and we have increased our sale prices by nearly 175%. It’s a no brainer!"

"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."

Easy by design.

You will never lose a bidder because of the device, browser or screen they are using, or because the website is too confusing to use. Municibid provides a clean, consistent, organized look and feel across any device or screen size. This is important to you because 65% of people are bidding from their mobile phones or tablets. We think you'll also find listing items for auction to be surprisingly simple and fast.
