iBid4Storage, which offers an online marketplace for self-storage auction sellers and bidders, has created a custom registration page for customers of BC Cole Auctioneers. The eBay-style online-auction platform will expedite storage auctions for BC Cole sellers and offer a more convenient method for bidders to win the contents of storage units.
Established in 1991 by Bill Cole, BC Cole Auctioneers has more than 1,600 self-storage auctions scheduled for 2015. A founding board member of the Arizona Self-Storage Association, Cole semi-retired this year, according to the company website. Casey Jones is the current CEO and lead auctioneer. “We strive to grow with new auction marketing, sales methods and technology.”
Our affiliation with BC Cole Auctioneers is significant in that it truly is the ultimate service offering for storage operators.
Y. Leon Benghiat, iBid4Storage President
Earlier this year, iBid4Storage released iBidFRAME, a tool that allows storage operators to advertise their unit auctions through their own websites. The new feature can be embedded in a storage facility’s website, displaying upcoming auctions in a click-through listing format.
iBid4Storage established itself as a premier marketplace for storage auctions by winning the 2014 Insider Self Storage Best of Business “Best Technology” award and 2015 Best of Business “Best Customer Service” award.
