4 Reasons Why You Should Hire an Auctioneer to Sell Your Firearms

Get peace of mind, abide by the law, and receive fair value for the guns you need to sell

When mulling over the best way to divest themselves of firearms in their possessions, hunters, collectors, seniors and widows, and estate executors all face the same conundrum: how to do it legally, and receive a lucrative return on the firearms they wish to sell.

For anyone who needs to have firearms in their possession appraised, safely stored, transported, and sold legally, your smartest option is to hire a reputable firearms auction company. Why?

For starters, attempting to sell a firearm online to an anonymous buyer is fraught with risks, and it could backfire. How can you verify who the buyer is? And if they’re in Canada, do they have a valid Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL)? Furthermore, if the firearms you want to sell are classified as restricted or prohibited, the onus is on you to ensure the sale and transfer of these or any firearms are done legally, or you may face criminal charges.

You could opt to sell your firearms to a private dealer, but by doing so, you should expect to receive far less money for your guns than what they may be worth.

Professional, Transparent, Legal, and Fair

There are four excellent reasons why you should have your firearms appraised, transported, stored, and sold by a licensed auctioneer and appraisal firm:

  • A firm like GTA Guns and Gear Auctions is licensed and experienced appraising, transporting, storing, and selling all types of firearms. We strive to get the most money for the items you wish to sell based on the history, condition, and market value of every firearm
  • It’s stress-free for you because we do all of the paperwork including verifying who the buyers and sellers are to ensure everything is legal, transparent, and fair for all
  • Our independent, certified gunsmith inspects every firearm we place on the auction block to ensure they are of good quality, and any imperfections are detailed for potential buyers to consider
  • Every semi-automatic firearm GTA Guns and Gear Auctions sells is range tested to ensure they work properly, and all firearms we sell include high-resolution exterior photos and fibre-optic bore photos. This gives bidders confidence in the quality of the firearms they wish to purchase

Are you not ready to sell your firearms but you require secure firearms storage options? It can be a particular concern for seniors who are selling their homes and moving to an elderly care residence. Regardless of your age or predicament, choosing to have your firearms stored by professionals at a secure facility is smart, affordable, and you can relax knowing your treasured firearms will never fall into the wrong hands.
