NextLot is the vision of Scott & Norman Finkelstein and is the culmination of three generations in the auction industry. Norman ran plant machinery auctions with auctioneers for over 35 years. With Norman’s 35+ years of auction experience and Scott’s expertise in developing cutting-edge business software, the idea of NextLot was born. When online bidding first became popular, Norman began hosting his auctions on marketplace sites, which were the only options available at that time. Norman became frustrated because he was sharing his bidders with his competitors while spending his marketing dollars to help promote their auctions. Norman thought there had to be a better alternative.
In 2007, Scott and Norman launched NextLot and started running privately branded online auctions for leading auctioneers who were experiencing the same frustrations Norman had voiced. Fast forward to today, NextLot has sold billions of dollars of auction items worldwide for hundreds of auctioneers across every industry.
The NextLot Advantage
Revolutionizing Auction Software for Auctioneers
NextLot, a Raleigh, North Carolina based leader in online auctions, was founded in 2007. It has been revolutionizing the way timed-online and live webcast auctions are being run for auctioneers.
The NextLot Advantage™ is the fundamental difference between our organization and the competition – it’s what separates us, defines us, and sets us apart. It’s the understanding that the world’s best auctioneers deserve the best service, the best technology, and the best experience for themselves and their customers.
Our competitors believe that auctioneers should list their sales on marketplace sites along with those of thousands of other auctioneers. By doing so, you are building the marketplace’s reach with your bidders while exposing your buyers to competition, buyers with whom you have spent decades building relationships based upon trust and respect. Our competitors believe that your advertising dollars should promote all of their sales, not just your own.
NEXTLOT BELIEVES that you want a better experience for you and your buyers. We want to help you to grow your business and build your brand by running online auctions on your website. Your bidders should register, bid, and buy directly with you and your advertising should promote only your auctions. You deserve better technology, better reliability, better pricing, and the best service in the industry. This approach is what makes NextLot who we are and what sets us above the rest.
We are committed to delivering on our mission of passionately serving the world's finest auctioneers. Our relentless focus on providing superior service, cutting-edge technology, and exceptional customer experiences is what drives us forward. We are determined to revolutionize the auction industry and empower auctioneers with the tools they need to succeed.
