Choosing the Best Gun Auction in Canada: What Makes GTA Guns Better Than the Competition

Choosing the Best Gun Auction in Canada: What Makes GTA Guns Better Than the Competition

Quick question: Do you prefer Coke or Pepsi?

It doesn’t really matter which one you prefer as they mainly offer the same thing: sugar and lots of it! The same goes for many other brands. While everyone has preferences, these rival brands are essentially selling the same product. It’s rare that you find a brand or company that truly sets itself apart from the competition. One that genuinely offers something unique to their customers and clients.

At GTA Guns, that’s what we strive for every day. We want to be so much better than our competition that there IS no competition! How do we do it? Read on!

More Money for Our Sellers

Selling pieces from your firearm collection can be difficult, and not just because you might be attached to them. When you take a firearm to a gun shop for a quote, you’re almost always going to get lowballed—they buy low and sell high. Great for them, not-so-great for your wallet.

Selling your firearms online might look like a better choice, but there are so many scams out there that it isn’t worth the risk. A much better option is to use a reputable auction site to put your guns up for sale, but not all auction sites are created equal.

Over our years of operation, GTA Guns has fetched an average of 22% more money for our buyers than any other firearm auction site. Why? It’s because of our extensive buyer pool.

When you list your firearms in a local auction, you’re going to be limited by a small buyer pool. But with GTA Guns, you’re going to have access to our huge base of buyers from across North America. These are pros who know what they want and are willing to pay for it. That means more money in our sellers’ pockets!

So, the benefits to sellers are apparent. But how are GTA Guns auctions better for buyers?

More Security for our Buyers

There are many people out there who feel nervous about buying things online, especially from auction sites—after all, you hear about eBay scams all the time. When buyers don’t feel confident about the items they’re bidding on, their bids will likely be pretty low.

But when they have confidence, those bids can soar sky-high. And that’s what we offer at GTA Guns: confidence!

One of the ways we do this is through our proprietary firearm inspection services, GUNCHECK™ and CYCLECHECK™. Here, our licenced gunsmith inspects all firearms in our auctions, inside and out. We then take external and internal high-resolution photos and put them up on the item’s page so buyers can see the exact condition of every firearm listed. In the case of semi-automatic firearms, we even take a video of us test-firing them!

In other words, we provide buyers with all of the information they need to feel confident about our listed items’ quality. And if they have any questions, they know we’re standing by, ready to answer them.


You might think all of this is enough to separate GTA Guns from the pack and position ourselves as the foremost gun auction site in North America, but we aren’t resting on our laurels. When it comes to customer satisfaction, we go one step further by offering unparalleled guarantees.

If a buyer receives a firearm in non-working order or that is damaged in any way, they can send it back to us—we even pay the shipping—and we’ll repair it free of charge with apologies (30-day max).

Even if a firearm arrives in perfect condition, it might not be precisely what a buyer was expecting. If they send it back to us, we’ll put the item up in our next auction without any sellers’ fees (30-day max, hammer price $3,000+).

There’s No Comparison!

As you can see, it’s not a Pepsi versus Coke situation with GTA Guns. We clearly go the extra mile to set ourselves apart and provide our buyers and sellers with exceptional customer service. Over the years, we’ve built a reputation for trustworthiness and experience. That’s why there are so many people who are confident in our auctions!
