Online Timed Auctions

Free online bidding using AMS’s sophisticated online bidding software. This intelligent online bidding system allows remote buyers to bid live or set limits for automatic incremental bidding.

Online auctions are publicised to a huge database of regular buyers. Your assets can be supported by a full marketing campaign to reach an even larger audience if required. The benefit instant bidding feedback creates all the excitement of a live public auction without leaving the comfort of your own chair.

AMS’s online bidding system allows bidders to set the maximum price they are prepared to pay and the software will automatically bid on their behalf until they win or are outbid. Auctions can also extend the end time for another 5 minutes every time a bid is place in the closing 5 minutes – allowing the seller to get the best possible return and allowing the bidder to have another chance if they really want the item.

Sales by Tender

High value goods and specialist machinery are often sold by sealed bid. Sales are conducted from AMS’s warehouse or the client’s own premises. This means the buyer places a written bid for the amount they are prepared to pay. No one knows the value of anyone else’s bid until the end of the auction!

Private & Confidential Tenders

High value goods and specialist machinery are often sold by sealed bid. Sales are conducted from AMS’s warehouse or the client’s own premises. This means the buyer places a written bid for the amount they are prepared to pay. No one knows the value of anyone else’s bid until the end of the auction!

This type of sale enables the seller to achieve maximum value for their goods as each bidder must effectively place their maximum bid from the start as they won’t be able to see how much anyone else has bid.

Should you sell your goods by tender?

AMS’s highly experienced valuation staff will advise you of the most appropriate selling method for your type of goods or equipment. Where appropriate, AMS will advertise and market your tender sale to a wide audience of potential buyers.

Tender sales are used when an item appeals to a specialist market, or if it is unlikely to attract a broad spectrum of bidders, or where an asset may be worth considerably more to one specific buyer than another.

With strategic advice and an extensive global database you can be assured of a good price. It’s easy to see why so many major Financial Institutions, Insolvency Practitioners, High Street Banks, HM Revenue & Customs, and the Official Receiver put their trust in AMS.

Negotiated Sales

AMS will find a buyer and negotiate a sale on your behalf. Valuation, documentation and specifications are all prepared and marketed to reach your target audience. AMS will demonstrate the goods, plant or machinery, negotiate the sale, collect the funds and ensure delivery to the buyer.

Selling at arm’s length

There are often circumstances where a client may wish to remain anonymous until a buyer is found. If you have an individual, large or complex asset of high value, you may require this type of private treaty sale. Your assets will be offered at a pre-determined price to an interested party.

Expert negotiators, skilled in all aspects of marketing and sales will guide you through the process of selling a high value item to ensure you get the best return. With specialist knowledge of many marketplaces and extensive global databases, AMS act on behalf of many major Financial Institutions and high net-worth clients.

Once the sale has been successfully negotiated AMS can oversee any decommissioning and removal of the asset from the premises.

Negotiated Sales Typically Consist of:

  • Preparation & Assessment
  • Accurate valuation of assets
  • Specifications & technical data expertly produced
  • Targeted Marketing Campaign
  • Flyers and mailings to targeted groups
  • Advertising in Trade Journals
  • Email marketing to global databases
  • Sales Processes
  • Demonstrations
  • Negotiations
  • Collection of Funds
  • Managed decommissioning and removals
