Why do I need to start thinking about Christmas now?

With 12 weeks to go, we breakdown everything you need to consider, when and how we can help!

Christmas is coming…. In 12 weeks in fact. You may love to hear that… or you may hate it. 

But either way, it will still be upon us in no time and you probably need to start thinking about preparing for it. 

We have started our 12 weeks of Christmas campaign to help get you prepared and ready for the silly season, with minimal stress on you or your wallet.

Starting with tools! 

Now is the perfect time to start cleaning the house up and getting ready for friends and family that are coming to stay. 

There is nothing worse than trying to arrange the house and making sure it is fully functional all while trying to buy presents and food at the same time.

Don’t leave it until the last minute… Christmas prep starts today!


Workshop Auction

Keep an eye out for our Workshop Auctions in Queensland and New South Wales. They feature lots of handy things to help make your DIY easier! 

You can finally hang those pictures or shelves that have been lying around or easily put together the extra furniture.

Brand new tape measures, digital door locks, hole saw arbours and full 19pc HSS toughened drill sets, all to make your home safer and in perfect working order for your guests.


New Modular Racking

Storage is a key word for any homeowner. Do you find yourself running out places to put your Christmas decorations, tools, camping gear or luggage?

With no bolts required, and each level able to handle 500kgs, this modular racking in your garage or shed is the ultimate storage solution! 

Store away general household items to make room for your Christmas decorations, tidy up the spare room and make it more usable or clear out the wardrobes to make the perfect hiding spots for Christmas gifts.

New Bins- Industrial and Domestic

When it comes to the outside of your house, a brand new wheelie bin is the answer to your Christmas prep prayers!

Trim the hedges and gather up the junk to clear room for backyard cricket with the nieces and nephews. Or maybe lawn bowls is more your scene?

These bins come in a huge range of sizes from 8L buckets to 1100L industrial sized wheelie bins. 

So, you can rest assured there is something capable of holding all those empty beer cans and wine bottles when your recycling bin overflows this silly season!


Workshop, Camping & Leisure Clearance

Our Workshop, Camping and Leisure Clearances are a great place to pick up a range of items mentioned before, all in one place.

But amongst the modular racking and the wheelie bins, you will find items to help you tick off the bigger jobs on your to-do list! 

Get yourself an electric high pressure washer to blast the house and create a clean canvas for the Christmas lights.

There are workbenches in all shapes and sizes to help organise your tools and car products and keep them out of reach of the smallest family members. 

You can even pick up remote controlled cars to stash away as early Christmas presents!

Hardware and Tools

Hardware and Tools is a weekly auction on a Monday night and features larger tools such as spray guns, jig saws and garden tools. 

This is the auction to browse when you have a big job to tackle and you see yourself as a confident DIYer. 

Even if you need tools for the job site or the business workshop, getting them through auction can save you money, leaving more in the budget for Christmas presents!

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for a chainsaw to help you chop down that perfect Christmas tree. There is nothing better than a real one!

If you’re ready to deck the halls then sign up for our email alerts that will send our latest tools auctions straight into your inbox.
