J.J. Kane Auctioneers has selected Proxibid as the exclusive provider of its timed auctions, beginning Jan. 20 and continuing on the third Friday of each month.

“We are thrilled to add timed auctions to our event calendar in 2017 to provide consignors and buyers with an additional way to liquidate and acquire equipment,” says Joe Kane, auctioneer and owner of J.J. Kane Auctioneers. “Timed auctions offer easy access to our inventory in a format that allows for more flexibility.”

With its timed auctions, Proxibid provides global access to bidding until the sale closes. The company allows for extended bidding that adds to bidding time on an item when a bid is placed “within the last few minutes” of the auction. Proxibid says this is done to provide a “level playing field for all buyers.”

J.J. Kane Auctioneers has been a long-standing auction partner with Proxibid,” says Ryan Downs, president and CEO of Proxibid. “Adding timed auctions to J.J. Kane’s auction calendar brings more quality inventory to our growing community of buyers who rely on the Proxibid platform to gain access to items they cannot find anywhere else. We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with J.J. Kane Auctioneers.”
