A list of auction and related sites I try to keep an eye on. Many specific to Michigan but some that are US national.
- MI BidCorp - Mostly police, TSA, and municipality auctions
- BidNet - I've only seen MI (even though it says nationwide). Seems to be mostly counties and municipalities. old url
- PublicSurplus - Nationwide but lots of MI stuff, Lot of education (universities) and municipalities/cities
- Sheridan Auction Service - Sells DNR stuff, but online, and other interesting things
- HiBid (Michigan specific) - Seems like a lot of auctioneers use this? LOTS of auctions, lots of junk, but there are categories for everything which is useful. I usually search through only interesting auctions, or through specific categories.
- RJMAuctions - Company liquidations. Usually automotive related but seem some cool tech too
You might find more by searching for local auctioneers and going from there too.
- MI DNR - Land for sale from DNR. They auction off larger amounts bi-annually (in person?), this is usually what's left over.
- ... others removed, links too old ...
Each county usually handles all its own tax foreclosures in separate systems, not easy to link to.
- GSA Auctions - Nationwide federal government auctions
- GovDeals - Nationwide & Canada. Cities and other entities. Really bad search. Go to location search at the top, type in zip code, search, hit "show all listings". Has affiliated sites NetworkInternational and AllSurplus too.
- Liquidation.com, sells bulk returns from Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot, etc
- GovPlanet - Has location search, seems well-known/lots of bidders
- BidNow - JDs mom sent me this one
If you know of any more good ones, send me an email!
