Stephen Segal

"I had a first class experience with this group. Their process is clear to understand, they are very organized and extremely customer focused. They picked up my vehicle at my house, which is very convenient, and kept me informed at every stage of the process. My vehicle sold at a great price and it was completely hassle free. I worked with Dave who is fantastic. I highly recommend this group."

J. Germono

"Picked up my vehicle that was shipped from Toronto. My first time visiting this company. Spoke to Angelica very helpful and friendly. She told me what I needed and the steps to getting the vehicle at their facility. Will use this company to ship any of the vehicles I sell or purchase from other provinces."

Andrea Etherington

Once You’ve Decided

We are here to help.

Transporting Your Vehicle To ADESA

To get your vehicle down to our auction, you can either drop it off yourself during our office hours, or for a small fee, we can pick it up for you — even if it’s not in running condition. Watch our video for more details.

Using Our Market Guide

Our national market guide gives you access to data on all vehicles sold at ADESAs across Canada in the last 90 days. This helps you accurately evaluate the worth of your vehicle at ADESA, so you have an idea of what to expect at the auction before you get started. Watch the video to learn more about our evaluation criteria.

What You’ll Need To Bring

There are a few things we need from you before we can sell your vehicle at auction, starting with your vehicle registration and a valid drivers license. Watch this video to find out if you’re ready to sell.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely not, but we will still run the offer by you. You ultimately have the final say for any offers that are under your minimum sale price. However, if the offer hits or exceeds your minimum sale price, we will accept the offer on your behalf.

The fees depend on how much your vehicle ends up selling for. Here are some examples:

  • Sale price of $5000 = Fee of $445
  • Sale price of $10,000 = Fee of $570
  • Sale price of $15,000 = Fee of $695
  • Sale price of $20,000 = Fee of $745

In the off-chance that your vehicle does not sell after 3 live auctions, we would only charge a fee of $149. This includes the $35 vehicle history report that we would have to perform. We will supply you with a copy of the report.

We’ll need:

  • A transfer of ownership (document varies depending on province)
  • A photocopy of your driver’s license
  • Also note that your vehicle will also need to be free and clear of any liens (any debt owing on the vehicle).

Your vehicle will run in 3 different live auctions. Additionally, it will be posted up on our daily online auction. This way, we know we’ve hit all of our potential buyers.

That’s okay! Around 90 per cent of the vehicles we sell are not safety certified. All we need to do is declare any major problems with the vehicle.

We strongly advise keeping the insurance on your vehicle or at least having storage Insurance to make sure you’re covered for any acts of nature. Better safe than sorry.
