“Your logistics team was top notch. They were fast, efficient and hardworking. Setup and staging all went flawlessly. They took pictures, assimilated lots and wrote descriptions. We had over 360 lots of large items from our business, spread over several acres. The online sale experience was painless and exciting. Once again, you were fast and, professional, answering any questions during the process. Alderfer Auction took the stress of retiring from our business away from us and made it look easy although it was anything but." – Business Liquidation Customer
