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!

What is said about us?
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.
…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 out 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.
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.
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!
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.
I just wanted to let you know that I was very impressed on the way you conduct your auctions. I have been to many auctions in my lifetime and I have to say you are the most organized one yet. I just wanted to let you know what I thought of your company.
Eric, I wanted to thank you and your whole crew for what you did for us recently. I called you on a Friday and told you my situation and you came up to Reading and met me on a Saturday morning. Having never been through something such as this, there were a few anxious moments but the bottom line was that we came out ahead of what I expected. You continued this performance after the auction with assisting on getting the items correctly and safely removed from the facility. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and while I hope to never need your service again, should I ever find myself in this situation again, you will be my first call.
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.
Eric, I greatly appreciate your firm’s excellent work in the Accu-Grade Contractors’ case and for bringing in great results from the auction! I hope to work with you in the near future on other matters!
