The first time I heard about Burns & Co was by word of mouth when one of my father’s friends recommended I take a look at Burns & Co. Selling our cars has been a bit of an emotional decision but the service has been very good. Everyone has been friendly and helpful. Anton has been amazing with his advice and assistance.

David MillarBayswater, June 2024.

I love the set up here, it is amazing. It’s intimate, not too big but not too small. I found the Burns and Co staff very good to deal with. They provided good service, great advice and were honest in their assessment of my car. The presentation and the description of my car was spot on.
I would totally recommend Burns & Co, especially for selling muscle cars.

Andrew ShannonBayswater, May 2024

I was considering selling my car and heard about the upcoming Holden Museum Auction and that Burns & Co were handling that. So I looked up the business and went from there. The whole set up was brilliant, and everything was spotless right down to the floors. The marketing was great. The Video of the car with the music was great, and the photos were beautiful. I watched the auction all day. when the car came up the whole family gathered around to watch. The auctioneering was brilliant. I was a bit worried at first how things would go given this was the first time I have sold at auction. The staff were really good. Debbie was great at front office, she explained everything I needed to know, and made it all very smooth for me. I am glad I went through Burns & Co as this is the easiest way to do it, and I now wouldn’t sell any other way. I would recommend Burns & Co to others no doubt. In fact I have another car I am now considering selling, and I am also looking at a few bikes I might like to buy in the upcoming Burns & Co motorcycle auction.

The way Burns & Co operate is like one big family and I believe that's why they are so successful. We had 40 odd legendary cars all with low miles and I believe Burns & Co went above and beyond to get the best price for every car. I couldn't recommend Burns & Co highly enough!...

Ezio D'AlbertoEchucha, April 2018

I found out about Burns & Co through the Just Cars magazine, I thought they only auctioned old vehicles, but I rang up and they said they would help me sell my vehicle. Burns & Co helped me with transportation and I was very grateful as I didn’t want to take the car myself to Melbourne. I was quite amazed at how professional the cars were presented and how the auction day was. The auctioneer didn’t go quick and truly gave the buyer as much time as they needed. The online bidding was great and easy to understand which made the process so easy. I would definitely recommend Burns & Co.

Don CunninghamBayswater, February 2024

There’s no words that I could find to express exactly how pleased I am. The whole weekend went off so smoothly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashley and his team to do an auction. It was smooth, and it was fun. I thought I’d keep away from it and it wasn’t a matter of I couldn’t help myself, it was just entertaining to be a part of. His auctioneering is magic, he’s almost hypnotic...

Dr Peter BurgessBathurst, June 2017

The whole company and the selling process was very professional, the process was very smooth, and nothing was a problem. When I called, I could easily get to speak to the same person. Where can you find that these days? I deal with a lot of different types of companies, and you can’t.

Steve WartonBayswater, February 2024

I had a great and pleasant experience, I would absolutely purchase through Burns and Co again or recommend you to others.

Troy SummersBayswater, February 2024

I sold my Mustang with Burns & Co and I actually prefer this method of buying and selling over a public sale. Burns & Co do all the work, collect the money, and make everything nice and easy. It’s all done for you, and you don’t have to put up with timewasters.

John PhilpBayswater January, 2024

I found out about Burns & Co through their website after looking at some cars they had available for auction. I was able to meet Dave and work with him as my main point of contact. Dave has helped me buy multiple cars and gave me advice on which cars would suit me best. It's so good that you can trust someone like that to steer you in the right direction. Burns & Co has made life easy as I can come in and pay with multiple methods and even when the bank is down, they try their best to make a hard process go nice and quick.

Goran KristicBayswater December, 2023

I found Burns and Co on the internet and sent Ashley an email. He responded within a day and was inspecting my cars the following day. Something none of the other companies could do despite me having a significant collection.
Everyone I met associated with Burns and Co was exceptional. The presentation of the business is great with very modern facilities. My vehicles were presented exceptionally and with care. The photos and videos along with printed catalogues were top-notch.

Rod GlueBayswater September 2023

"Everyone, all the staff is amazing, I am so impressed with the work, even the office lady rang me for accounts and money while other auction places don’t care, I will be taking future cars there for auctions and told all my friends”.

Harry NauBayswater, June 2023

Others fell over, it was too overwhelming. To Ashley it was a challenge, within 40 minutes of our first conversation we had the job done. I think he's the best Auctioneer in the country, he commands the stage and takes control of the room. I believe he's the best in the business and his team by far the best in the business, they have exceeded my expectations.

Glen JenningsNewcastle, October 2018

Pleasure to deal with and particularly as a first time seller I was very impressed with your professionalism, guidance and consideration given to me throughout the whole process.

Bill SuraceBayswater, August 2022

His nation-wide ability to advertise my sale items was indeed impressive and created huge interest. Ashley and his Burns and Co staffs experience at knowing what the items were, how well they would sell and indeed how to sell them added immensely to the sale and the dollar outcome. Burns and Co are one of the few auction company's who will go through an absolute mess of memorabilia, parts and other miscellaneous items including cars, clean them, put them into saleable lots, photograph them, detail the description of the item, put them onto the internet Burns and Co site, advertise them everywhere and carry out the auction exceptionally and even sweep and clean up after them. Ashley's demeanor, efficiency and just plain auctioning ability made the two days an absolute joy to experience the sale...

Tony AberlineWest Wyalong, October 2020

"... Ashley did everything he said he was going to do and more. It was organised like an Army camp. The staff are fantastic, Ashley knows where he’s going, he’s focused, and I’d highly recommend him to anyone.
I didn’t think he could improve on day one and then he did!
He’s just that far from anybody else.
