RMBIDS unveils revamped online platform for marine equipment auctions

RMBIDS, the world’s first online platform for marine equipment auctions, has launched a new and improved website, expanding its services to promote a new era of fairer maritime trade.

RMBIDS has always prided itself on user discretion – both sellers and buyers have always had the option of being anonymous – and this has been further enhanced in the new site, with additional privacy features available to sellers. RMBIDS’ Private Room function will allow owners who want to auction off their goods confidentially, whilst knowing their potential buyers, to enter a virtual auction space with pre-agreed purchasers only, all of whom sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) to protect the owner’s identity.

The new site centres on a transparent and easy-to-use online bidding process and its diverse range of products – from cranes to diving equipment, thrusters to helidecks and cargo boats to sailing yachts. It also boasts enhanced user experience, aiming to make every stage of the trading process as easy as possible.

For sellers, the advantages of placing a listing on RMBIDS includes access to over 10,000 potential buyers, a strict ‘no-cure, no-pay’ policy and the ability to secure the best price in an active market, as the price is negotiated upwards from the base price rather than down from asking price.

Buyers can benefit from gaining access to ships that would be otherwise unavailable, procuring equipment through a standardised sales process from pre-vetted sellers, and flexible financing and transport options.

Roland Brautigam, co-owner of RMBIDS, said in a release, “RMBIDS.com is the first online bidding platform specialised 100% in the maritime sector and fills a gap for sellers and buyers of marine equipment. We are extremely excited as we believe the maritime sector has been waiting for such an online platform which allows for the quick, transparent and easy sale and purchase of marine equipment.”
