History of Spokes Auctioneers

Spokes Auctioneers was started in 2007 by Director and Marketing Manager Mr. Siponono “Spokes” Shange. As an experienced entrepreneur he saw a gap in the market and used his expertise to take advantage of this opportunity in order to develop and build one of the few black owned auction houses in South Africa.

Spokes Auctioneers is 100% black owned with a level 1 BEE status. This allows us to provide comprehensive auctioneering services across the country while meeting all compliances and requirements stipulated by the national legislations in place.
