A new house, a renovation, downsizing, a divorce, new job, greater or less income, inheritance or just wanting all new stuff are some of the events that trigger people wanting to reduce their current load of goodies. But what are the benefits of consigning furnishings, accessories, antiques, collectibles, fine art, jewelry, tools and alike?
One of the main reasons people choose consignment is because they are TOO BUSY! Don’t have the extra time to deal with all the organizing, photographs, phone calls, emails, no shows on appointments to preview etc… and they don’t want to deal with strange people coming into their homes or on their property.
Having your items offered for sale in another location is a great value on its own and we will answer the phone calls, emails, take the pictures, organize the contents, open our doors for viewing and make time for our Buyers and Consignors!
Offering your items to be sold and shipped worldwide is an added benefit to selling online and the repeat Buyers who have now spoke to their friends, family, co-workers, gym mates are passing around the good news of the deals they have received or “won”! It’s a win win for Everyone!
We are proud to provide and offer all our Consignors:
Feel free to call our office and speak with us personally; we would be pleased to assist you and provide any further details needed. Call 519-271-2646.

Can I Put a Reserve on my Item(s)?
We do not hold a reserve on contents unless the value is over $1,000.00 per item. We also ask that you have zero expectations of what your item(s) will sell for
We are not in the moving business, however, we can arrange for your items to be picked up by a moving company. We simply hire out the movers to come and collect the items from you, they will then be brought to our auction center and stored at our facility until we can get them into one of our monthly sales. The trucking costs are then deducted from your sale proceeds. On average a moving truck and two men is approx. $120/ hour
What Happens if my Item(s) Doesn’t Sell?
When Can I Except Payment
Within 12 business days of the sale closing, we are able to process a cheque or send an e-transfer for your items. We also include an itemized list of all your contents that sold in the sale, what they sold for, and a breakdown of commission, as well as any trucking or dump fees (if applicable) gets deducted from the bottom balance.
