Terms of Business
PLEASE PAY IN CANADIAN CURRENCY, DO THE EXCHANGE ON PAYPAL BEFORE PAYMENT. THANKS.
All details of business terms, prices & descriptions of items offered for sale in this shop are current, subject to change without prior notice & replace any previously advertised details.
There is very little WWII Axis military inventory in this shop, however when it is made available, it is limited to the Axis Armed Forces (Navy, Army and Airforce) and not to the political arms of the three Axis powers. Garrison Militaria does not support the political views of National Socialism or the edicts of Imperial Japan. The military uniforms, medals, insignia and accoutrements of these nations are presented for sale only as historical military artifacts, captured material brought home by Allied soldiers, for militaria collector interest only.
On a sale-by-sale basis we can discuss layaway. If we agree to Layaway, we will require 25% of the asking price as a down payment and the total payment must be received within the negotiated timeframe. If full payment is not received within the agreed timeframe the sale will be considered in default and deposits will be forfeited after the agreed-on date unless further arrangements have been made.
Garrison Militaria is a consignment business providing a service to those dispersing a collection. We welcome consigned authentic military antiques for sale, whether one item or an entire collection. Sooner or later we or our families will be faced with having to sell our collections for various reasons. It can be painfully expensive to your estate if not handled properly. Garrison Militaria with its expertise will make the process seamless. Garrison Militaria will optimize the return on your investment and make the process less burdensome. There is no up-front fee. We will arrange an initial review of the collection, a Consignment Agreement drafted followed by a detailed inventory with your prices expected provided by you to be signed by all parties making the arrangement legally binding. Garrison will be responsible for physical transportation of the collection, research, evaluation and final pricing, writing descriptions, photography and posting of the collection online. If you are out of province and required to ship the items it will be at your expense. Effective June, 2021 Garrison commission structure is:
- Consigned articles with a value less than $2,000. - 20%
- Consigned articles with a value $2,000 or more - 15%
Once your collection items are sold, you will be paid either with cash payment, bank transfer or by company check within 30 days of sale with inventory update. Please allow time for the purchaser 14 day inspection and return privileges. For consignments containing multiple items, payments will be aggregated rather than sent separately. The option to you is to find a retailer who will ask for less than 17% on the item for overhead and the risk of the buy. The auction houses are taking 20 to 25% on the hammer price. We offer a competitive option if you are willing to post your items and wait for the return. If you want instant cash the other two options are the route to take, but you will not realize an optimized return and you have no control of pricing. Consider consignment as the alternative. Our clients to date have been happy with the return.

Sales of Knives & Firearms
The sale of Knives, other Edged Weapons and Firearms are restricted to those aged over 18. Verification of age is required before purchase is concluded.
Due to PAYPAL policy restrictions all firearms and ordinance cannot be purchased using the PAYPAL option. All of this inventory is now marked Price on Request (POR) to avoid the PAYPAL buy option. If you wish to buy the posted antique hand guns or other ordinance you must contact me directly by phone or email and request the price for the item and close the deal by these means until I find an alternative service. All other products are still available using PAYPAL using the buy button. Sorry for the inconvenience.
All Firearms on this site are confirmed and defined legitimate pre 1897 ANTIQUES, meeting all guidelines according to Canadian Law. We also carry legally DEACTIVATED Modern Firearms with paperwork. At this time, due to the changing gun laws within Canada, the US and abroad, Antique and Deactivated Firearms on this site will only be sold within Canadian borders. Garrison does not carry or supply live munitions of any kind. Antique arms are not confirmed safe to fire. It is recommended that if you wish to fire firearms purchased from this site that they be checked by a qualified gunsmith before hand. For all intent and purpose these are sold as antique display items.
- Garrison on occasion will carry inert or deactivated munitions and ordinance. Replica or inert munitions are non-mailable, as well as other devices that simulate explosive devices or munitions, including replica or inert grenades or other simulated military munitions, whether or not such items are for display purposes. Therefore we will only sell such replicas or confirmed deactivated items to local collectors over the age of 18.
Edged weapons will be sold globally. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure the edged weapon ordered is not RESTRICTED within their country. If it is confiscated or turned away at the border we take no responsibility and there will be no refund.
