The dedicated and experienced staff of the Bid of History auction house.

Welcome to Bid of History; Northwest Indiana’s premiere full-service in-house auctioneer service!

Serving Indiana, western Michigan, and the greater Chicagoland area, we provide auction services for estate sales, liquidations, automobiles, consignment auctions, and charity benefits.

Bid of History is unique to the area in the complete service it provides. Not only do we host your auction in a professional venue, allowing your bidders the comfort and convenience they need to place high bids, but we go a step further and provide the full hybrid auction service – cataloging your items and advertising them all online prior to the auction, to draw the largest numbers of bidders to your sale. Auction items may be viewed in person before the auction, to show the buyers exactly what they want to see. Live auctions are broadcast over the internet, and bidders can be active from the comfort of their homes, as well! Bidding may even be done online by registered buyers or via our smartphone app, to ensure both market anonymity and security!

Our mission is, and will always be, to make sure you get the MOST for your items.  We have experience in multiple auction channels including Live Estate Auctions, online only auctions, simulcast live/internet auctions, and eBay.  Some items bring more money in certain venues than others, and we will evaluate each item and advise you the best way to sell it.

Bid of History gives you, the seller, everything you need to ensure the strongest sales. We also give you, the bidder, everything you need to ensure satisfying purchases.
