GSB Auction Features
Aiming to become a global auction platform
that is a hub in the industry
The “STAR BUYERS AUCTION” B2B auction started as the “Tokyo Star Auction” in 2013. Since then, the number of registered dealers has continued to grow, and we are now supported by buyers from all over the world. In April 2020 we converted to a completely online format, and have created a system allowing bids to be placed on all items from domestic as well as overseas locations. We have also begun accepting consignment sales from domestic dealers. We will proceed to expand our services and functions as we aim to become a hub in the reuse industry with our outstanding lineup of products and quality that take advantage of our own buying network, while also striving to become a luxury resale platform that can be used both domestically and overseas.
