We are excited to partner with PROXIBID; a premier online auction platform with a large Classic Car following in Canada and the USA.

Online Bidding Now Available!

buying in person

The most exciting and memorable way to purchase your next classic vehicle is by attending our auction in person. To participate as a Bidder while attending in person, you must have a valid driver’s license or passport, purchase a Bidders Badge and complete a Bidders Contract.

As an attending Bidder you will have ample time to look over your potential purchase(s) to satisfy yourself that you are fully aware of the condition inside and out. In most cases you will also have an opportunity to meet the present owner to discuss the history, condition, and any other pertinent information you feel is necessary to assure you completely and confidently that this is the automobile for you.

All purchases must be paid for in full by 1pm on the first business day after the auction, by wire transfer, email transfer, cash, certified check, or bank draft. Personal checks and business checks will only be accepted when accompanied by an irrevocable Bank Letter of Credit Funds, stating bidding limit in favor of Franklin Auction Co. Ltd. and correctly dated for the applicable auction event in question and duly authorized by an officer of the financial institution. This will enable you to take all your purchases home on the same auction day.

Upon purchase (per vehicle), you must be in a position to provide a $500.00 deposit by credit card or cash when requested by our clerks. Note: Payment by credit card is not an available option for purchase(s) and is only accepted temporarily as a non-refundable deposit which will hold your purchase(s) until 1:00 pm the next banking day. By then, you must have paid in full for all your purchases by wire transfer, email transfer, cash, certified check, or bank draft delivered to the auction site. At that time, your purchase(s) will be released.
