“Auction is a quick and exciting sale process, which benefits both buyers and sellers.”

Since our first auction in 1949, Quaid Auctioneers has conducted auctions across North Queensland, with thousands of sales and literally millions of items now under our belts. Acting for private vendors, government departments, private and public listed companies and many more, we are the first choice for sales in Far North Queensland and work to provide a high level of service to vendors and buyers alike. Items as diverse as heavy machinery for mining, commercial catering equipment and fine jewellery have all passed through our sales, with staff specialising in a wide range of products to ensure a successful sale every time.

Our fortnightly auctions are a Cairns staple, held from our North Cairns display warehouse and open to the public. For those larger or more specific auctions, we conduct regular on-site auctions for restaurants, hotels, workshops, businesses and mines – ranging from less than a hundred to several thousand lots at a time. Mining and industrial equipment has been a particular specialty, with Quaid Auctioneers featuring on the majority of major mine closures in North Queensland over the past 15 years.

Plant and Equipment Valuations is another important facet of our business including the Valuation of Chattels, Motor Vehicles and Plant and Equipment. Whether this be the creation of detailed inventories for a property sale or a full valuation of assets, we are able to offer a tailored service in a timely manner across the region.

Licenced Auctioneers of Chattels, Motor Vehicles and Plant and Equipment, Quaid Auctioneers is led by Managing Director Stacey Quaid with over 25 years of experience working across Australia and the Asian-Pacific.
