PBS to use “Internet Auction On Steroids” to liquidate former technical operations center.

It’s way more exciting than a live auction. You are bidding on 10 items closing simultaneously. The smart buyers utilize our MAXbid feature and let the computer do all the work for them.

PBS, amongst the first broadcasters to implement cutting edge digital technology has taken another cyber step in the liquidation process. The entire PBS operations recently relocated to new facilities. The remaining 2500 items of excess broadcast, video, audio and technology assets will be liquidated next week in an online only “super auction”.

Similar to an old fashion auction, flyers were sent out, and a catalog was prepared for the three day onsite inspection. But instead of a fast talking auctioneer, the bidding is online only.

The photo catalog is fully searchable and accepts multiple types of bids. Auctioneer Chris Rasmus explains “It’s like ebay on steroids; we have 1000’s of items selling in one special event.”

The auction begins closing online at 3 PM this Thursday April 20th, ten items close every minute.

“It’s way more exciting than a live auction. You are bidding on 10 items closing simultaneously. The smart buyers utilize our MAXbid feature and let the computer do all the work for them.”

Unlike ebay, Rasmus does not ship to buyers. Assets are available for a three day pickup and individual movers and shippers are available to deal directly with the buyer.

Rasmus says this method of sale is the logical next step for traditional auctioneers. “Buyers are too busy to attend live auctions. These sales allow bidders worldwide to participate from the comfort of their home or office.” The process has been good for business too. Last year Rasmus conducted 220 internet only auctions. Next year he is shooting for 400.
