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.
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 turnkey 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.
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.
Eric, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for a fantastic job with the Casale Industries auction. I have to tell you, everything you did exceeded my expectations. Not only that, but from the first time we sat down, I was shocked at your knowledge of each and every one of my machines. I had other auction companies in here and each one was in and out of my facility within an hour, but you came in and spent nearly 6 hours out in the shop going over every detail and every piece of machinery and equipment we had out there. I also want to mention what a thorough job Bill, along with the rest of the boys, did in all the prep work leading up to the auction. You guys really know what you’re doing and I couldn’t be happier with my choice of choosing Quaker City.
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!
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 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 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.
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.
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!
