How it Works


It only takes a minute to register. You don’t need an account to view auctions, but you will need an account to bid. WireBids users can bookmark lots, view their bids and edit their profiles. Click here to create your account now!


An independent seller posts the auction on WireBids. Buyers can view the seller’s terms, location and lots on the lot listing. If you would like to hold your own auction, please contact us here.


Please bid with care! If you are not able to purchase the item you have bid on, contact WireBids immediately at to cancel your bid. By bidding you are entering into a binding contract. You will be obligated to purchase if your bid is highest when the auction closes. Read the seller’s terms, as they are different from the terms of WireBids. The seller determines the payments accepted, deadlines, pick-up dates and more. These terms are listed on each lot listing page, with the seller’s location and contact information. If you win the auction, you will be bound by these terms. Timed online auctions at WireBids will automatically extend if a bid is placed within a certain number of minutes of the closing time of a lot. This extension facility will apply even if the newly placed bid does not exceed the proxy of the current winning bidder.


If an auction closes and you are the highest bidder, you will receive an invoice including the lots you have won, amount due, the seller’s contact information, and payment options and restrictions. Reach out to your seller directly after the auction has ended if you do not hear from them. If you have trouble reaching your seller, or have any concerns, please feel free to contact WireBids at or by phone at 1-888-229-5733. The sooner that payment is arranged, the more likely you are to receive your purchase on time! Late payment policies may differ from seller to seller, but in order to maintain WireBids as a place where buyers and sellers want to do business, your account may be placed under review in cases of multiple non-payments or non-payments on high ticket items.

"Great support from staff. Easy way to sell your used equipment. Have made several purchases and gotten a great deal. I will continue to use Wirebids."

ALEX PIERSON Pierson Litho

"I've used WireBids since its inception. I find it as the most reliable resource for both buying and selling used equipment. The fact that the auction is driven into buyer's inboxes without them having to specifically be searching for an item gets us better results than other "post & hope for an outcome" sites. Fees are simple, reasonable and honest and we get great personal customer service from our account representative, Sarah. I regularly steer customers who are looking for particular equipment to the WireBids. I've been a live auctioneer and in the printing equipment business for over 40 years and I visit the WireBids site at least every other day."
