• On-line & Mobile Auctions •


Our home office is in Melancthon (north of Shelburne), 438280 4th Line.  However, auctions are mobile.  We go wherever the need is in Ontario.  We’ll bring our team to you.  We regularly host on-line consignment auctions at our auction barn in Melancthon where you can vist for preview and come for pickup. We also ship winning bidders from across the globe their newly purchased treasures.


We will meet all your needs including assessing, cataloging, photographing, packing, moving, storing, advertising, bookkeeping and
day of on-line auctioneering. We’ll never nickle & dime you. One fee includes it all.


To bring serious bidders together to compete for the seller’s merchandise ensuring a fair market value. No quality item 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. Our goal is to always “treat you like family too”.
