Testimonials

Jeremy Cheff

“When COVID hit in 2019, we had to cancel our Annual Holiday Party where we always host our charity Silent Auction.  We decided to keep the Silent Auction but tried to find an online platform that would allow us to do the same. Luckily, we had heard really good things about MobilBid. Even though we had our first in-person party again in 2022, we continued to host the auction online through MobilBid because of its easy-to-use, friendly platform.  It makes our lives much easier during in the planning stages much less hectic at the end of the night by instantly processing payments.”

We love working with MobilBid.  Derek is always willing to help and often replies within minutes.  We also really appreciate that they provide a thorough review of your auction prior to going live, which is incredibly beneficial in helping us avoid errors once it’s too late.  We will absolutely continue using MobilBid software for the foreseeable future.

“We originally hired MobilBid to help us with our major fundraising event back in the spring of 2020. Unfortunately, it was postponed due to the Covid pandemic and both Dale and Derek were wonderful to work with as we dealt with all the details involved. We decided to try a stand-alone online MobliBid auction that summer. It was a big success and helped our fundraising team work through the process of holding an auction. We encountered a few challenges around finalizing the date for our rescheduled fundraiser and again, the MobilBid team was there to support and help us. We finally were able to host Queens of Spayeds in October 2022 and the Silent Auction component was a HUGE success on all levels.”

We were able to raise more money and the process of closing the sales and completing payment was seamless. Our attendees loved being able to bid and watch their favourite items in the auction while still enjoying the entertainment.

The support, advice and assistance Dale and Derek provided throughout was awesome and definitely contributed to our success. We look forward to working with them again in 2023.

“The MobilBid platform is smooth and easy to use. The closeout of the silent auction was the best we ever had – because we used MobilBid.” 

Derek was truly a gift to work with!  When I was stressed before the launch of the auction, he set up a review meeting with me and addressed all my concerns that I had remaining,  He was proactive with a review of our auction, he shared great resources, and shared insights that increased my understanding and improved the overall auction for our bidders!

“As a registered charity we rely heavily on donations and in particular, fundraising events. After almost three years of no in-person events due to the pandemic, we decided to offer a hybrid, in person and online, and choose a silent auction platform.

After vetting eight different companies to work with us we choose MobilBid! That was indeed the best choice…rates, service, and platform all are stellar.”

We especially liked the client service and support. We cannot say enough about how we were helped all along the way. We will use MobilBid again and are definitely recommending them within the summer camp industry and beyond. Our event was fruitful and MobilBid played a key role in that success.

“During the pandemic, my company PBS Events - an experienced, professional event planning company that has organized many fundraisers - was forced to switch from live events to virtual auctions. We made a successful transition through MobilBid, and both virtual auctions I completed in 2020 and 2021 raised more funds than in-house events.

We learned that auction items receive more bids and sell at a higher price so not as many items are required. The participants find the process extremely professional and easy to manage. The auction starts and stops on time. Mobile bidding makes events so much easier than getting up, looking for a bid sheet to update at in-house events.

Collecting funds from the successful bidders was easier than any event I have ever organized.  The support from the MobilBid staff is outstanding and I plan on using MobilBid in all my future fundraisers. ”

“Thank you so much to Derek and the team at MobilBid! MobilBid completely transformed the silent auction portion of our golf tournament, from what used to be a manual process to a seamless and easy online platform that has resulted in a huge success for our fundraiser. We were also able to reach a greater audience by using this simple and easy platform which allowed us to raise more money for our event. We are excited to continue using MobilBid at future events!”

“The auction portion of our first-ever virtual gala was a great success thanks to Mobilbid! We received many comments about how user-friendly the whole bidding and close-out experience was, and we can’t imagine going back to a traditional auction, even when we can safely return to in-person events! CCS is very pleased with how things went and we appreciate your direction, support and follow-up along the way.”

“Citizen Advocacy used Mobilbid for our signature fundraising event, Evening in the Maritimes, in 2019. With 600 guests bidding on 150 items, Mobilbid was an attractive, user-friendly platform that left our guests with more time to network while also increasing our revenue. Staff and volunteers found it much easier than a traditional silent auction and the customer support was fantastic. The data we collected after the event has helped inform some critical decisions for future years. We can’t wait to use Mobilbid again next year!

“MobilBid was the perfect service for our silent auction at our Els for Autism charity golf tournament. The platform is intuitive, and their team is genuinely interested in the success of their clients’ auctions. Would absolutely recommend and happy to be a reference for the service. Thank you.”

“I am a recovering “Bid Sheet Addict”. Throughout my career I have made thousands of bid sheets (in triplicate) for fundraising events. MobilBid has changed our events and had an immense impact on my role as an Event Officer. Say goodbye to bid sheets and sell your bins of clipboards and pens. Silent auctions can be easy and FUN for guests. My favourite function is auto billing. Using this function eliminates checkout lines and the need to follow up post-event for payment.”
