About Us

PoliceAuctions.com, now with over 7 million members, was founded in 1999 by Vortal Group, Inc., almost 20 years ago.  In its early days, the site was a simple list of links to government auctions and other interesting websites. Over the years, the company developed it into the most comprehensive government auction data available on the Internet, with more listings and more accurate up-to-date government auction data than any other site on the web.  PoliceAuctions.com also has a robust non-government auction business with its $1 no reserve auctions, featuring items like certified diamond rings, collectibles like Mickey Mantle baseball cards, gold coins and many other exciting auction opportunities.

in 2013, the company was renamed as Serrf Corp., reflecting a modernization of the culture and a revision to its mobile-first technology for its wholesale $1 auctions, bringing a superior auction experience to its users. These no reserve auctions feature bids that update real-time, with no need to refresh the page, making for a more exciting and natural auction environment. This, combined with a human-answering support line, industry-leading disclosures, and friendly customer service, makes buying through online auctions fast, easy, and reliable.
