Eastern Ontario’s Premier 3rd Generation Auction House

Steeped in history and tradition situated just outside Brockville, Ontario, Hands Auction is a 3rd Generation, Family-run Auction House.  We specialize in Estate Services, Downsizing, Real Estate, Jewellery, Farm, and Liquidations.

With a generational background in live auctions, 10 years ago we branched out to online auctions.  Being the first Auction House in Eastern Ontario to take this leap we firmly established ourselves as a leader in the field.  Our Auctions bring in merchandise and buyers from not only Eastern Ontario, but all over Canada and the World. 

Our business has been built on the pillars of honesty, hard-work, and great service.  We pride ourselves in what we do.  For us the auction business isn’t a job - it’s a calling, it’s literally in our blood.  We are proud to serve our community.

John and Carrie Hands took great pride in putting their community first and gave countless hours to numerous charities over the years. Including, but not limited to: Canadian Aid for Chernobyl, Rotary Club, Heart and Stroke, Palliative Care, and the Brockville Police.  Whenever the community came calling John and Carrie answered. 


“You take care of your community and your community will take care of you.” – Carrie Hands


Today, their two sons Jason and Matthew continue this tradition alongside General Manager, Debbie Seary.
