Buying at auction

Smiths Auctions is the fun, fast, fair, no fuss place to buy all manner of goods, all in one central Christchurch location.

Our Auction Calendar includes regular weekly auctions of Trade, Outdoors, Household and Office goods, as well as Special Auctions.

We can even send you an Email Auction Alert to let you know what’s coming up.

No Fuss

At an auction you know you’re paying the true market price. There is no substantial retail markup on the goods we sell. At Smiths Auctions all you’ll ever pay is a 15% buyers’ premium.

We pride ourselves on being the Christchurch auction company that makes buying at auction easy. Fill in our simple Buyers Bidding Card to register. We’ll give you a buying number, which you hold up when you want to make a bid. No haggling, no hassle.

We’ll even bid for you if you can’t attend. Fill in our Absentee Bid Form online or in our auction centre and we’ll get the item you want for the cheapest possible price up to the limit you nominate.

Smiths Auctions' auction rooms is centrally located with a large car parking area to make your attendance hassle free.

Don’t worry about it. Just let us know that you haven’t been to an auction before and we’ll tell you everything you need to know.
And no, you won’t end up buying a grand piano just because you scratched your nose.
