What Our Clients Say

The auctions are always fun and it’s a great crowd. 90%+ of all the items for sale are quality items. It’s nice to go to an auction and not feel like it’s just unsold garage sale items. They always have enough staff working the ring so bids don’t get missed. Sometimes you have to pay up for something you really want, and sometimes you get a screaming deal on something you want. That’s the nature of the auction, but it’s always a fun time for both buyer and seller.
