What is said about us?
“After 30 years in business I made the decision to close down and liquidate the assets of my company. I contacted QCA and met with Eric Merback. After meeting with Eric, I was very pleased with his knowledge and expertise. I had them to do the auction and it was a smooth transition from beginning to end. I would highly recommend QCA for any auction requirements.” Craig Weatherholtz, President, Ellis Wood Collection, Ltd. (Oct 2016)
“The purpose of this letter is to introduce and recommend Mr. Eric Merback and his company Quaker City. In 2015 we decided to close our structural steel fabrication comany after 50+ years of operation. After meeting and discussing our plans with Eric we decided that he was the right man for this job. He was articulate in answering all of our questions and concerns and provided a turn key process that worked perfectly for our needs. From the day we signed our agreement Eric took care of every detail of marketing and preparing our equipment for sale. After the sale he expedited the removal, loading and shipping of everything in our plant. Eric and Quaker City provided exemplary service to our company. They are competitive, dependable and cooperative and we give them our highest recommendation.” Patrick M. Dorn, Vice President, Jarvis Steel & Lumber Company, LLC
“After having close to a twenty year small business partnership, my business associate and myself decided to liquidate the assets of our company and go in a new direction. After speaking with multiple dealers and auctioneers over the phone, only Eric Merback, the President and Owner of Quaker City Auctioneers, was willing to come to our facility and inspect all our assets before offering a proposal of any kind. Being intimately involved in every aspect of the building of our business, this was important to us. Upon inspection of all the contents in our facility, Eric quickly helped us assess what was needed for a successful liquidation and he was able to put a schedule into motion that benefited all involved. Once we agreed upon terms, his experienced staff made a complete written, pictorial and video inventory of all the items to be sold. They arranged the various lots throughout our building in an organized way which they felt would bring the best prices. In the process of doing so areas vacated where broom swept and loose debris were disposed of. During the entire process, Eric and his staff kept in close contact with us and were readily available to handle any questions or concerns that came up. Auction day went very well with a nice group of enthusiastic buyers in person and online bidding for our assets. All that was required of me was to answer questions regarding some technical and historical aspects of our equipment during the inspection period of the auction. Across the board this was a painless success and we are very happy with our decision to work with QCA.We would like to thank Quaker City Auctioneers professional efforts and would recommend their services to anyone who may inquire. Eric and staff, your personal yet professional touch and swift action was greatly appreciated.” Richard W Robins, SMI
“I’ve been coming to Quaker City Auctioneers auctions for about a decade. This is truly a class act organization. They treat their customers with integrity and respect. Eric and Brandt are true professionals and make sure the auction process goes smoothly. When it comes to setting up an auction, Bill is one of the best in the business, always ready to answer any question and assist in any way necessary. The back office staff is always helpful and polite.” Vlad Mashkevich, BJV Enterprices.
“Eric, I just wanted to drop you this note to express my thanks for the great auction you and your staff conducted on our premises last month. Your people spent all the time necessary to get all of the equipment into lots in preparation for auction day. Preview day and auction day went very smoothly and the customers were handled very courteously. The contract we signed was clear and concise and you fulfilled your end to a tee. I was particularly impressed with the way the internet sales were handled. All in all, I was very pleased with the way everything was handled and also pleased with the amount received for the equipment even down to the final accounting and timeliness of the payments. I would highly recommend Quaker City to anyone desiring to go through the auction process.” Bob Cone, President & Owner, ITNAC Corporation.
“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your help in auctioning my company’s equipment and materials. From the very beginning I feel you were honest in your assessment of the worth of what we had. You explained to me how you would handle everything that had to be done and spelled it out in your contract. You were reasonable about any changes that needed to be made. The auction went off on schedule and was handled from beginning to end in a professional matter. When all was said and done it was very successful. I feel you were the reason for this. I would like to thank you for all your help. I would recommend your company to anyone who is in the situation they need a company like yours.” Rick Dove, Dove’s Industries, Inc.
“We had the pleasure of working with Quaker City Auctioneers for the liquidation of our Patriotic Ventures steel fabrication and machine shop equipment. They made the whole process professional and stress-free. From start to finish there were no issues and everything was handled in a first class manor. They did what they said they would do, and they did it when they said they would do it. We happily recommend Quaker City and their organization should you need their services. They make it easy!” Joseph Ford, COO, American Asphalt Company
“With all the remembering being done about September 11, 2001, I can’t help but think about our first auction. I had come to you with my first Trustee auction, a metal fabricator in South Jersey. It was a national-level auction, and, as luck would have it, we scheduled it for 2 weeks after September 11. By the time we all stopped reeling from the shock, you and I were faced with a discussion about what to do since there was the possibility that the “right” people may not get on a plane to attend this auction. I feel like that was the first time that we faced a tough decision together and worked through it. I trusted your instinct to go forward as planned and the auction was successful beyond our expectation. Since then I have come to consider you one of my most trusted resources in my Trustee practice. You constantly give me invaluable, reliable advice as to values, methods of liquidation and industry norms in the most esoteric of situations. I can count that you will do whatever it takes to maximize the value for me and the constituents to whom I answer.” Andrea Dobin, Bankruptcy Trustee, Sterns & Weinroth, Counsellors at Law
“I wanted to thank you and the staff at Quaker City Auctioneers for an outstanding job on the Icon Identity Solutions auction. The results of the sale were fantastic. The return exceeded budget by 50%! Your team was very organized and professional and the equipment was presented well for the sale. Marketing efforts paid off in great attendance, despite more than a foot of snow the night before the auction. I would strongly recommend QCA to anyone considering a sale. Thank you again!” Steven Derrah, VP of Operations, Icon Identity Solutions
“The rumors are everywhere—this is not the time to have an auction as prices are so low, etc., etc. You convinced me that it is the age of the machinery that counts. Most of our machines are in great condition… I took your advice and your men went to work shining up the machines… for the ‘Big Day.’ I would like to thank your staff for a great presentation… very professional, and of course the bottom line was better than I expected. To sum it up, it was a great day and you called it.” Dudley Cannon, President, Superior Industrial Valve Repair, Inc.
“I’m pleased that we partnered with QCA. Their experience in handling the auction process and familiarity with the local area proved to eliminate any apprehension awarding the project. Their experience and professionalism was evident and resulted in a successful auction. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eric and Quaker City Auctioneers and would certainly keep them in mind for future opportunities.” Miros deWit, Key Plastics, Inc.
