Six decades after its founding, the firm has maintained its legacy of leadership by conducting many of the world’s largest, most successful auctions on behalf of corporations, government agencies and financial institutions.
Dovebid is is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and has over 40 locations throughout North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. For more than 60 years DoveBid has helped corporations, government agencies and financial institutions get maximum value for their capital assets by conducting thousands of industry-specific auctions to sell millions of individual lots – representing billions of dollars in assets. More than half of the Global 4000 has participated in Dovebid programs, and many have signed national contracts. Allied Signal, Apple Computer, AT&T, Boeing, Daimler Chrysler, GE Capital, General Electric, Ford Motor Company, Hewlett-Packard, Lockheed Martin, Lucent, Motorola, Nortel Networks, Packard Bell NEC, Raytheon, Sun Microsystems and Xerox are but a few of the notable companies that have conducted multiple auctions with the firm.
