Welcome To Auctions in Hawaii

Born in 1981, Auctions in Hawaii was founded to provide asset recovery and auction services to the business community. With the emergence of the digital revolution, Auctions in Hawaii innovated an online-only solution combining the benefits of traditional liquidation techniques and the efficiency and affordability of online auctions. Today Auctions in Hawaii is a market leader in internet-only event-based auctions honoring its legacy of innovation and continuing its heritage of high-quality service. Auctions in Hawaii has the stuff you need at the price you set.


What We Sell

Today, Auctions in Hawaii conducts internet-only sales both large and small throughout the United States.

The flexibility and reach of the internet is ideally suited for all types of equipment and inventories.

Auctions in Hawaii sales include high-end designer furniture stores, diesel generators, party rental companies, IT switchgear, franchise restaurants, corporate headquarters, office furniture and business equipment, guard dogs and frozen fish inventory, to name a few.

The Un-Ebay

Unlike eBay or CraigsList, which sell a single item to a single buyer, Auctions in Hawaii is an event based liquidation site. Each event has a location, scheduled preview, closing and removal and sells many assets to many buyers.

We are a little bit traditional (with previews and pickups), a little bit eBay (online bidding), and something altogether different (event based, photo catalogs and credit card only payments).

Custom Auction Solutions

As specialists in the sale of commercial or personal property, our innovation, expertise and marketing skills consistently result in the highest possible return. Committed to our client’s satisfaction, we give the same care and attention when selling one item or an entire business. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your project and evaluate your assets at no charge.

  • 2013

    Rasmus rebrands and builds a better platform for future bidders and sellers.

  • 2006

    Rasmus determined that, with few exceptions, liquidation would be conducted by internet only auction. The access and flexibility the internet provides has resulted in Rasmus being able to conduct hundreds of events with greater participation for both sellers and buyers alike.

  • 2003

    Rasmus conducted its first internet only auction. As before, every item was posted online, however, all bidding took place on the internet.

  • 1997

    Rasmus began posting auction catalogs online for interactive online bidding. Internet bidding was halted prior to the live auction and the resulting bids were used as opening or proxy bids by the auctioneer.

  • 1996

    Rasmus was amongst the first auctioneers to post events online for preview. This revolution provided buyers with detailed, advanced looks at sales items, dramatically improving buyer knowledge of sales assets.

  • 1985

    Rasmus began “theater style” auction sales, eliminating the old-fashioned “walk-around” approach used by most auctioneers. Bidders previewed assets onsite, then were seated “theater style” in front of a televisions or screens. The theater approach allowed bidders to remain comfortable and confident in their bidding as first slides, then digital photos flashed across the screens.
