Auction items will reach a much broader, national and global audience of competing bidders, leading to better net results for the agency, while providing great deals to buyers.
London Grove Township, PA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
London Grove Township has taken to the web to auction several surplus items such as lawnmowers, a dishwasher, a golf cart, and other pieces of equipment. The Township is using online government auctions site, municibid.com.
Bidding is open to the public. Items are available for bid now through August 27th and can be found in the London Grove Township Surplus Store on municibid.com.
municibid Founder & CEO, Greg Berry said, “Taxpayer demand and tightened budgets require government agencies to look for new ways of increasing non-tax revenue, municibid is an easy way to achieve this and at no cost to the agency.” Berry added “auction items will reach a much broader, national and global audience of competing bidders, leading to better net results for the agency, while providing great deals to buyers.”
In a recent example, the Town of Mansfield, MA recently sold 70 items, expecting to earn around $75,000, instead, using municibid, sales totaled $167,000.
