We really made the right decision to work with Leist Auctioneers to sell off our farm equipment, guns, and household items that we no longer needed in an absolute auction. The only thing we worried about was getting fair value for our things. At the end of the day we were very satisfied with the results and could never have managed to sell all of our things as independent items and still make our move date.
We have recently sold our house and had two months to relocate out of state. We decided after meeting with Wade of Leist Auctioneers, that instead of paying high moving and storage fees ($20,000+), an auction would better serve us. After considering the pros and cons, we decided to go with them to auction our things.
The auction went better than we could have hoped for. We took their advice and did an absolute auction, and while we were a bit uncertain, it worked out far better than we hoped it would. Almost everything was sold.
The set up was flawless and fast the teardown was the same. So much pressure was taken off of us because they handed everything. The decision to do the auction instead of having a moving company move everything saved us $20,000 and on top of that it earned us enough to replace the things that we will need once we are moved.
Leist Auction, and it’s representatives, did a phenomenal job of marketing and generating interest in our auction – and the results proved that out. (Our state representative was even here).
We can’t thank Leist and Co. Enough for all that they did. Lastly, we also want to thank everyone that came out and supported our auction and helped make our move so much easier.
