CT Bids Is Our Unique Platform for Hosting Online Auctions in Orange Coast, CA

Discover the many benefits of selling your estate through our industry-leading online auction site


Caring Transitions is a nationally recognized company that specializes in relocations, downsizing, and estate sale services. When it comes to estate sales, we realize many of our clients are short on time and resources when having to execute an estate sale on behalf of the family. For this reason, we are able to offer a simple, user-friendly way for people to quickly and effortlessly liquidate their estates. Enter CT Bids – our unique application for hosting online auctions.  

How Does CT Bids Work?

To get you started with CT Bids, we will first arrange a free on-site consultation to discuss your goals and survey the items you wish to sell. If you need some assistance, our referred auction specialists can photograph and catalog each item with you. We can then proceed to open your personal CT Bids account and show you how to upload your auctions. This is a rather convenient way to sell a loved one’s estate or liquidate a portion of your assets without having to interrupt your daily life.

How to Price Your Items On CT Bids?

When you choose CT Bids to host your online auctions, you will have access to a palette of pricing options. What makes our website so unique is that you are never forced to sell your items using only one method. Instead, boost your sales by opting for one or more of the following options:

  • Auction – A rather simple, traditional way for an auction to take place. You price your object and then let the bidders outbid each other until the highest offer claims the auctioned item.
  • Fixed price – If you do not want to allow bidding in your online auctions, just set a fixed price and wait for the first buyer to make a purchase.
  • Classified ad – Make your items more appealing for the buyers by running classified ads that feature images, detailed descriptions, prices, as well as shipping costs. Do remember to disable the ad once a specific item is no longer available.
  • Buy now – Just like with the fixed price option, the buy now option makes your items available for immediate purchase for a pre-set price, not subject to change.
  • Reserve – You want to allow bidding but are concerned whether or not your items will reach the expected value? We have a solution – set the price at reserve. This option will enable you to set your price behind-the-scenes while the bidders cannot see it. At the end of the auction, if your item has not reached the reserved price, you can either restart the auction or offer the goods to the highest bidder.
