How does it work?

Canberra's Biggest Garage Sale asks for pre-loved goods to be donated and auctioned online with proceeds given to Canberra's most vulnerable through the Hands Across Canberra Foundation or directly to the nominated associated charity.

Getting involved is simple and listing your item is easy:

  1. Register with ALLBIDS and create your account
  2. Validate your account
  3. Post your item

Once the auction concludes:

  1. Your item is sold and paid for by highest bidder
  2. ALLBIDS introduces both parties to complete pick-up of sold item
  3. Both parties agree on a mutually acceptable time to collect the item
  4. Buyer notifies ALLBIDS about the successful collection of item from seller
  5. The proceeds are donated directly to Hands Across Canberra or nominated charity
