Adelaide auctions offer a small but attractive field of items that a bargain buyer can find. This list is in no way complete and the article will be developed over time as I add and uncover more companies for you.

In relation to the rest of the country Adelaide is much much smaller than say its counterparts in Melbourne or Sydney but there are national companies such as pickles auctions represented and you can also bid online at many auction houses including pickles and therefore size does not matter but access to a computer for bidding and reliable Internet does. That’s if you are prepared to travel to pick up the item which you have bid on.

The first auction house in Adelaide to mention is Pickles. Pickles auctions are a national company and are situated at 1754 Main North Road in Adelaide. At the time of writing pickles were conducting auctions of South Australian government vehicles with approximately 90 S. Australian government vehicles on offer to the public which range between passenger, light commercial, four-wheel-drive vehicles being auctioned including some with factory warranty. Pickles also do earthmoving and mobile plant equipment, trailers, boats and marine equipment, IT, phone and office machines as well as being famous for its auctions of salvage vehicles in Brisbane especially after major hailstorms.

Pickles auctions are a National Australian company with offices in ACT, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and Western Australia.
