Murray Auctions hold fortnightly auctions allowing your item a good opportunity to reach thousands of potential buyers and sell for the best price through online public bidding.

Why Sell at Auction

Public online auctions are a fast and fair way to sell goods because participants bid openly against each other and the item is sold to the bidder who offers to pay the most. Auctions can be a very valuable way for businesses to quickly release capital from dead stock in storage or demonstrate that a fair market price has been achieved for repossessed or abandoned goods. The process of selling is transparent, removes the trouble of storing goods, buyer negotiations, viewing appointments and turns unwanted assets into cash, fast.
