Frequently Asked Questions
Why must I fill this out for every auction?
There are several benefits for this but the two main reasons are:
A: Hundreds (and hundreds) of people register for each auction and many are new. It saves the auction house hours of time by simply sending the form to everyone rather than verifying who's information is previously saved.
B: A bidders information may change between auctions (ex. PAL conditions, legal address, etc) and the auction house needs to know before that bidder can bid on restricted items.
Why do you need this before I even bid on anything?
The firearms registration office brings in extra staff during our auction to handle our transfers.
If you bid on any restricted or prohibited items the new certification registration is transferred immediately after the item has sold. There is no time to contact each person to get that information during an auction.
It's been 24 hours and I haven't been approved.
The closer it is to auction day the more applications are submitted which can
take a while to review so be patient. Common reasons for not being approved are:
Why don't you ship ammo?
-Most of the ammo we get are from estates and do not qualify for Canpar (and similar) couriers shipping policies. For this auction NO ammo will be shipped.
When will my items be shipped to me?
Approximately 50% of each auction is bought online and needs to be shipped. Items are shipped in the order of how quickly they are paid and how simple they are to package.
It takes roughly 3 weeks of 12 hour days to get everything packaged, invoiced and mailed out.
I bought a restricted/prohibited firearm. When will I get it?
The transfer information is sent out the moment the item sold during the auction. After that the auction house has no control over the transfer.
The current estimates from the firearms office suggest Prohibited Firearm transfers will be 6+ weeks.
Bidders that bought guns they cannot legally own must still pay for them. The firearms will be resold at a future auction at buyers expense. The auction house does not guarantee a profitable return.
I'm in America. Can I buy a firearm?
Americans can be approved to bid on firearms if they provide the information required in the next question.
How do I bring a gun to America?
-The process takes between 2 to 6 months.
I'm in America. Can I buy antiques?
Yes but it is up to the you (the bidder) to verify that the firearm is considered an antique in BOTH countries before bidding. Regulations are different in both countries and even between some states.
NOTE: A firearm that is registered as Prohibited in Canada will
never be allowed to leave the country under certain conditions. American antique laws are not relevant.
(explosive components) will be shipped.
All other items are shipped through Canada Post. Go to www.canadapost.ca to get rates. The auction will not price out items before an auction.
Items to large for Canada Post are the responsibility of the buyer.
