We also do on-site auctions.


  • Because we have two regular auctions each week, you get faster turnaround.
  • Our clients are often surprised at how quickly Smiths Auctions turn goods into cash. You’ll receive your cheque within 7 days of the goods being sold.
  • We have a large 1200 square metre purpose-built auction room complex and yard for easy access. Our forklift speeds up loading and unloading.
  • Because of our central location and ample parking we get more buyers and therefore more sales.


  • At auction you get a fair NZ market price, with no hassle and no haggling.
  • Following an auction all payments go into a separate Clients’ Funds Trust Account and you will receive a detailed account sales statement with your cheque.
  • We can help you work out reserve prices if necessary. If it doesn’t sell you don’t pay a cent.

No Fuss
