"Using the Bid Beacon app was a great customer service experience. Throughout the entire process, a Bid Beacon representative was readily available to walk me through auction set-up to going live. I definitely plan to use Bid Beacon for future event silent auctions."

"If it weren't for Bid Beacon, we would have missed out on a successful fundraising opportunity! Bid Beacon is like getting all our invitees in one room, at one time, to hold a live auction, whenever we want! Many thanks, Bid Beacon! We'll definitely do this again!"
- Lorraine Whaley, President, HADC
"When the church I was helping to lead made the decision to wind down, we were
left with a large inventory of supplies, equipment, tech gear, kids’ toys,
books, furniture, kitchen equipment and other items.
We chose to liquidate a large inventory of supplies, equipment, tech gear, and other items using Bid Beacon. We were able to load up over 450 items quickly and efficiently, thanks to the duplicate and edit feature. Every item had one or multiple pictures attached.
The whole experience was very satisfying and far more practical that the garage sale/Kijiji alternatives. I would highly recommend Bid Beacon for any fundraising or asset liquidation challenge."
