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.

Big thank you to our clients: trustees and executors, lawyers, accountants, financial institutions, insurance companies, investment companies, auction management firms, and other big corporations. Contact us for more information!
