The most important aspect of remote bidding of any sort, is the ability for a bidder to feel confident in what they are bidding on. Off-site bidders must rely entirely on the information provided to them about item being purchased. In today’s, “as is” auction world, having reliable data for off-site bidders is crucial.

Our Latest breakthrough allows us to efficiently gather detailed pre-recoded video clips of many major auction items. These online movie clips will provide accurate representations of the items as they sits at the auction facility. A number of clips will be taken of each piece including 360 degree external view shots, 360 internal view shots; both distant and POV operational videos. These clips will be an invaluable tool for Online Buyers to make more educated buying decisions.

Depending on the available internet bandwidth at a given auction site, we will be able to provide fee-based interactive webcast inspections of the items up for auction. Some Auctioneers will have the option to provide these as a service to their customers, otherwise, buyers can opt to purchase these services directly if RealtimeBid is already providing other services at the auction.

At every auction presented by, we publish the catalog descriptions as provided to us, unless our Auction Catalog Data Verification services have been selected by the auctioneer. In this case we provide feedback to the auctioneers and help verify that their Auction Catalog and Inventory Data are correct. Bidders can feel confident that Catalog Descriptions for RealTimeBid Verified items are not wrong, (limited to the make, model, and serial number).

In any case, we strive to provide the best possible tools to allow off-site bidders the opportunity to make the most educated inspection and bidding decisions possible.
