Share Article

Seniors need more help to cover costs of their care. Online auction helps to sell more and maximize the value of their belongings.

We want to make buying a used item as risk-free as possible for our customers

Transition Squad has just added daily online auctions to the list of ways it sells items for their senior citizen clients. Transition Squad helps seniors downsize and works with families going through a parent transition. One of the biggest challenges for their clients is "what do we do with the home and everything in it?"

Transition Squad offers a menu of services from getting organized to holding estate sales to selling the contents through their own consignment outlet - and now, through online auctions at their website,

Every day, three to four items from their inventory are added to the auction list. Buyers have one week to view the items in store and to place bids online. The highest bidder at midnight on the 7th day is declared the winner. The auctions lists items ranging from antiques to china, crystal, electronics, glassware, furniture, and more. Unlike other consignment stores and auctions, Transition Squad offers a 7 day exchange policy, even on auction items.

“As long as the item is brought back in the same condition as when it was sold, we are happy to offer the buyer a future credit to use on anything in the store,” says Viraf Baliwalla, President of Transition Squad. “Sometimes, you just don’t know what it will look like in your home until you try it out. We want to make buying a used item as risk-free as possible for our customers”.

“I started buying collectables about the same time as Transition Squad was getting ready to open their consignment store,” says Linda Robertson, a buyer client of Transition Squad. “I bought my first item from them before the store even opened. And I’ve been a repeat customer ever since”.

Viewing auction items and bidding online are free. Bidders must first set up an account. Then, bids can be placed with a credit card or items can be bought right away at their BUY NOW price. Winners can pick up their items at the store after the auction, or delivery can be arranged. Transition Squad serves the Greater Toronto Area however has had interest from as far away as British Columbia.
