The Great MATE Auction


Under the hammer!

This Year Adelaide Tradie MATE is proud to introduce the GREAT MATE Auction.
Our generous exhibitors will be offering a host of items to be auctioned on the 5th and 6th May.

No Buyers Premium. Part proceeds benefiting Little Heroes Foundation.

There are no Buyers Premiums and all items will include GST unless stated by the auctioneer. Items auctioned will be either New or a near new Demonstrator.

The aim of the auction is to give our attendees some great Bargains and at the same time add to the fundraising activities of the Expo.

Once again we are pleased to have the Little Heroes Foundation as our Expo Charity.

Simply call into the Expo and view the items before an Auction Day. If you see something you would like to bid on, simply make a note of the item number and wait for it to be auctioned.

There’s loads of Power Tools and Hand Tools, a Tradie canopy, even a truck!
Full descriptions of large items will be found on our website as they are registered for auction by the seller.

To become a bidder just register your details at the Great MATE Auction in the Goyder Pavilion and pay a small $5 auction registration fee. This will allow you to bid and enter the Expo as many times as you like. All bidders should be aware of the Great MATE Auction T&C’s

It’s building up to be a great Auction, so bring your Mates and get in early to checkout all the sensational offerings
