Auction / Payment

On delivery to The Auction Barn, your item/s will be lotted in the next auction available. After the successful auction of your item, you will receive payment into your nominated bank account, minus commission and fees



Sell From Our Rooms

Simply drop your assets to us or we can arrange logistics on your behalf. Your item will be categorized and listed into the best-suited auction. We then collect payment, deduct fees and commissions, and transfer the remaining balance to your nominated account.
