USED VEHICLE MARKET

The used vehicle market has skyrocketed in the US with high demand and supply shortages with some used car models costing more than new cars. Families are turning to Municibid in order to find affordable vehicles.

So, are you familiar that cities tend to sell stuff, surplus things? I think we all know this, but do you really know what they’re selling? Can I give you a quick example? My father, José, was notorious for going to these municipal city sales and buying weird things because they were cheap.

I grew up in a house that had a honest to God, full-sized couple hundred pound metal fire hydrant…in the living room.

Well, cities sell all kinds of stuff. And around Illinois, I mean if you’re looking for it, you might be able to find it.

About Municibid

Founded in 2006, Municibid, a four-time Inc. 5000 member (2018-2021), serves over 4,000 governments and schools across the US who use Municibid to auction off fire trucks, buses, ambulances, heavy machinery, agricultural equipment, and other surplus goods to the public online. https://municibid.com/

About Our Founder & CEO

Greg Berry is the Founder and CEO of Municibid, the go-to online marketplace for government auctions. As a councilman for the Borough of Pottstown, Greg noticed a huge problem: his borough and almost every one of the United States’ 86,000 local government agencies were selling surplus for dirt cheap because so few people knew the items were for sale. The sealed-bid process for which agencies would accept bids was also not a truly competitive process. Greg launched Municibid in 2006 to solve these issues.

Municibid is now a leading platform for state and local governments, schools, authorities, and other government agencies all over the US and Canada to sell their surplus vehicles, equipment and all kinds of items directly to the public, 24 hours a day. As a business leader, Greg educates entrepreneurs on why government auctions benefit enterprises, tips for launching a successful online company, and more. https://municibid.com/
