Oley's Auctions


How do I consign my items?
Make sure to give us a call before you stop by to ensure that we are in the building and are able to accommodate your items, especially in the case of larger items. Due to incredible demand for our consignment services, we will fit your items in as soon as we are able to. This may result in a 1-2 month wait. (Please note: You must provide us with information from your legal ID in order to process consigned items.) Our Auctioneers will sell your items in our next available Consignment/Estate Auction. After the Auction, you will be mailed a cheque for your portion of the sales within 30 days.

Do you pick up items to be consigned?
Definitely! We offer pick up in the following areas: Powassan, North Bay, Callander, Chisholm, South River, Sundridge, Restoule and Nipissing. Fees are dependent on the location, size and amount of items.

What happens if my items don't sell?
If your items cannot be sold we will contact you to determine your wishes for these items.

What if I want to get a certain amount for my consigned items?
Oley's Auctions allows our consignors to place Reserved Bids on valuable items. Often bids go right past the reserve, however, when they don't, we have made the decision to inform the crowd of what the reserve was, so that they can choose to bid that amount or higher and achieve the price you wish for your items.  Every effort is made to achieve the requested amounts, however if the Reserved Bid cannot be met, the Auctioneer will put your item aside and try again at a later auction.

Please note that while we encourage, welcome and appreciate consigned items, Oley's Staff does reserve the right to refuse items as a means of ensuring quality, and based on what we know to sell and not sell.

The easiest way to determine if we will accept an item is to think about whether the item (or lot of small items) would sell for more than $10.00, if the answer is no, we will likely not accept it and would be better off to be donated.

You are always welcomed to call to ask our opinion on your items.

We thank you for your understanding & your patronage.
