Makwande Auctioneers (Pty) Ltd, established in 2011, is a Fresh, 100% black female owned Emerging Enterprise that offers asset valuation and disposal services to the private and public sectors.

Due to the evolving landscape of the auction industry we have adapted the following disposal methods to assist our clients:

Public Auction Method:

This is the process of initially advertising assets or equipment through various online, print and street media platforms before selling the goods by offering them for bids to the public.

Private Treaty Sale:

In this case the assets are exposed directly to known potential buyers who then offer and purchase the assets without necessarily competing with other buyers.

OEM Purchases:

This is where auctioneers would purchase new and/or redundant assets and equipment from various Original Equipment Manufacturers or even end users who may not have sufficient assets to put on auction regularly.

Online Auctions:

Typically like a silent auction that allows people to bid on items over the internet. Bidders either continue to check on the items they are interested for or they receive electronic notifications known as bid-tracking to monitor their progress against other bidders and ultimately their success.

Movable Assets

Our range of movable assets are sourced from individuals and companies. Although most of our assets result from liquidations we also have individuals who use our services to dispose of their unwanted goods.

Ready to dispose of your obsolete assets or buy movables get in touch with us today for a viewing or FREE valuation.

Entrusted by industry leaders:

Although our company is fairly new in the industry our experience and knowledge in this field has gained us the trust of reputable clients such as development finance institutions, liquidators or curators, hotels, and individual clients.

There will usually be a clause printed in their Conditions of Sale (displayed at the auction or printed in the catalogue) stating “we are not responsible for the authenticity or condition of any item”. However, goods must not be deliberately described or misrepresented falsely. If the buyer finds that he/she was misled into buying something, it will have to be proven to court that the buyer examined the item closely before buying it. The buyer will have to proof any obvious false description or misrepresentation.
