CT Bids – Our Proprietary Platform for Online Estate Sales & Auction Hosting in Mesa, AZ & The Surrounding Areas 

Discover the benefits of organizing online auctions through our special CT Bids site in Mesa and the surrounding Arizona communities

Caring Transitions is a nationally recognized provider of transition services proudly serving your area of Arizona. We deliver streamlined support for clients who need help during difficult relocation, downsizing, and estate sale projects.

When it comes to estate sales, we can manage every aspect of your full or partial estate liquidation on-site, or we can offer a more convenient option – hosting online estate sales through our proprietary CT Bids platform. This unique application allows you to manage your account and sell off all your items online from the comfort of your home.

How Does Our Platform Work?

To get you started with CT Bids, we will first take the time to assess your items and explain how to set up an account on this unique platform. Our online auction specialists can help you photograph, appraise, and list each item. Once you upload them on CT Bids, all you have to do is wait until they are sold. Rather neat, is it not?

How to Price My Items On CT Bids?

When uploading your items on the CT Bids site, you will find an array of pricing options. We always encourage our clients to use different methods of sale or combine them to make their auctions more noticeable or appealing for the potential buyer.

These are the common online auction structures that we can use to sell your items:

  • Auction – A rather traditional way of auctioning your items that requires you to price your item and then let bidders make offers until the best offer wins. 
  • Fixed price – This option is ideal for folks who are not too keen on the whole bidding process. By setting a fixed price, you ensure the item is not sold for less than what it is worth. 
  • Classified ad – Generate more interest in your online estate sales by running classified ads that feature images, descriptions, prices, and shipping costs of specific items. Just remember to take the ad down once the item is no longer available.
  • Buy now – Similar to the fixed price option, setting a buy now option means your item is available for instant purchase for a pre-set price that is not subject to change.
  • Reserve – Those of you who want to allow bidding but are concerned whether or not your auctions will meet the expected price can simply opt to click on the reserve button. This way, you can set your behind-the-scenes price that the bidders are unable to see. If the asked price has not been met, you can choose to re-run the auction or consider the highest offer.
