Estate, Restaurant, Business or Diamond Auctions

First time at an Auction

When Searching for Edmonton Auctions, you may be drawn to them for the following Reasons: New Appliances, Real estate, Jewellery, Furnishings, Restaurant equipment, Bankruptcies etc.

Many auction attendees find the experience addictive. They report that there’s nothing quite like the thrill of finding something they want and then bidding against others who want the same thing. It is MUCH more rewarding than gambling!

You don’t have to be a seasoned auction attendee to be able to experience the thrill of auctions.

Auctioneers across Canada are glad to welcome new bidders to their auction houses.

And though almost everyone has heard the old story about the person who attended an auction, scratched his nose and came home with an item he’d not intended to buy, pay no heed to this myth. 

Kastner Auctions is catalogued:  You’ll ALWAYS know which item you are bidding on.  Kastner Auctions offers a power point presentation on HD big screen TV’s to bring you details you can’t see with the naked eye!

If you have never been to an auction, come to 11205 149th Street just to witness the opportunity to save 70% off of brand new items.  (We do have antiques and previously enjoyed items as well)  - don’t think you have to go to your first auction ready to bid.

Attend one of our auctions to FEEL THE EXCITEMENT. Watch and listen, then move on to bidding if that makes you comfortable.

Our auctioneers & staff spend some time addressing commonly asked questions and explaining how the auction is going to work.

If you would like a brief tutorial on how the auction process works, please stop by the day before the auction where our staff members will explain how the auction process works and educate you on how to get THE BEST DEAL. We Guarantee you’ll soon have a trophy story of what an amazing price you got an item for or how unique of an item you found at Kastner Auctions. 

No matter how green you feel you are, a Kastner Auctions Customer Service Representative will bring you up to a senior level of auction understanding within moments.

Always remember that at an auction you’re free to ask a question if you don’t understand something.

We want you to start and continue coming to our auctions, so they’ll do all they can to encourage repeat business! Ask a question to a member of our team, and we’ll find the answer for you.

When you arrive at an auction site,

  1. register for a bidder number and read the rules printed on the back of our bid cards. Do not hesitate to ask questions if you don’t understand our policies. Again, ask questions if you don’t understand a policy. 

  2. Inspect the merchandise you’re interested in, as most is auctioned on an "as is, where is" basis. This means that not all items are guaranteed. Our appliances, however; usually come with a 7 day warranty.  We also plug in all of our electronic devices during the auction to test them. 

  3. When you buy an item, you become responsible for it. 
  4. In order to bid at an auction, you need to make contact with the auctioneer or the ringperson. A ringperson is someone who takes bids from the audience and then passes those on to the auctioneer. To bid, hold up your bid card, your hand or shout \"yes.\" 
  5. The auctioneer or ringperson will make eye contact with you, take your bid and immediately turn and seek another bid. 

  6. You can remove yourself from the process at any time by shaking your head \"no"\ or saying \"no"\ if the auctioneer or ring person turns your way. 

  7. Should an auctioneer or ring person misinterpret any of your signals, simply report the mistake right away by saying “I didn’t bid on it or, I only said *half”.  Half means I'll offer you half of the present bid increment  (if its a hundred dollars for the next bid, you are offering a $50 increase instead)
