About Us


Our home office is in Melancthon (north of Shelburne).  However, auctions are mobile.  We go wherever the need is in Ontario.  We’ll bring our team to you.  We often hold our consignment auctions at the Creemore Arena, in the Village of Creemore, south of Stayner.


We will meet all your needs including assessing, cataloguing, photographing, packing, moving, storing, advertising, bookkeeping and
day of auctioneering.


To bring serious bidders together to compete for the seller’s merchandise ensuring a fair market value. Nothing is too small or too large for our auctions. Our focus isn’t on the sale alone.  It’s on the customer’s needs.  We’re here to help with services above and beyond auctioneering.
