David Moore

Founder of David Moore & Associates and Rapid-Sell

Led with experience, knowledge, and integrity

When David established his business in 1984, he was solely involved with live-farm and rural auctions. Met with success in these early stages of his career, David steadily branched out and introduced, well, everything from real estate and business closures to automobiles and construction/industrial equipment, to collectibles, furniture, and other household items. With an ever-growing business, he rounded up an experienced team of professionals, able to tackle any job with proficiency while providing a cheerful and welcoming customer experience.

In 2012, David Moore & Associates transitioned from live to online auctions with the founding of Rapid-Sell.ca. This new platform offers an efficient and innovative way for sellers to market their items to a much wider group of buyers; bidders now have convenient and immediate access to view, bid on, and buy items on their schedule, from anywhere. The transition was an instant success and continues to grow thanks to our thousands of loyal online auction participants.
