Important to know

As owner-operated company, for years Auktion & Markt has promoted growth by building long-term business relationships based on trust. Personal contact and a close relationship with our customers – regardless whether suppliers or buyers – are of fundamental importance to us. It’s not for nothing that virtually the entire board of management will be familiar to you from seeing them on the auction platform at one time or another. 

Being on the cutting edge of auction activity and at the hub of the market are just as important to Auktion & Markt AG’s company philosophy as the continual use of new technologies with the brand Autobid.de. That is how we link the tradition of an auction company that has more than 20 years' experience in thousands of auctions with innovations of the future.
