I was equally impressed with your auction house on my recent visit. You have a very clean, well organized yard. I am sure this added to the success we realized from the auction. I also appreciated your knowledge of appraised values of our equipment, and how accurately you estimated what we should expect to receive at the auction. This knowledge is a great help in allowing us to make decisions on what length of effort we should go to in retrieving our equipmentHoyt Alexander First Farmers Bank & Trust
I have been dealing with Don Smock Auctions for 23 years now. On both the buy and sell sides, I’ve never been disappointed. They are very professional, personable and will always give you good honest numbers of value. I learned a lesson many years ago and dealt with ‘two other top industrial auction companies’ one time because of auction timing issues and never again. I have been spoiled dealing with Nic and the guys and value the relationship that 23 years have brought us to.Kent Dickerson Global Constructors Co., Inc.

The DSA team is courteous and professional to buyers and sellers alike, and we’ve had firsthand experience in both capacities.

I’ve done a lot of business with DSA over the years. I started working with Don Smock back in the early 2000’s. My experience with DSA was always enjoyable and the outcome of our business together was always fair. I appreciated Don’s interest in my success, and his willingness to always try to help, even in times when he couldn’t. I miss him, he was a great man.
I’ve dealt with Nic for many years, and the outcome has been equally as enjoyable. Nic is extremely passionate about his business, his customers, his community, and his faith. He has taken DSA to the next level, and I know Don would be very proud.
I personally recommend you call DSA for any auction needs, if for nothing more than to learn what it is like to do business with this family.
I just wanted to let you know that we have enjoyed working with your company for many years now. I can remember our fathers working together many years ago with you father Don first started your business. We have purchased and sold many items at your auctions through the years and have always been very pleased with the process. When selling items at your sales, your office does an excellent job communicating the information that we need as well as processing our payment in a timely manner.Daniel L. Liotti Midwest Mole, Inc.
First off I would like to say thank you. Thank you and your staff for running a well organized auction. You guys did a wonderful job for Berns Construction. I know that we had used you in the past for auctioning off equipment, but this was my first experience and all I have to say is thank you for educating me from beginning to end on the whole process.
For this being my first experience and having approximately 40 pieces to sell I was a bit nervous, but you and your staff went out of the way to meet me several times at my office and for lunch to discuss details. I never once felt like there was anything that you were hiding from me. The whole appraisal process was painless to me and I felt like those were numbers you were going to work hard to get for us. Once I signed the contract, your staff did a great job of marketing our equipment and preparing us for the auction. Pictures and advertising helped get our equipment out of the masses to review and see before the auction which I believed help make our equipment sale a success.
Although I could not attend the auction, I did have a couple of representatives of Berns there and they were impressed at how streamlined and organized the auction was. We were very satisfied with the sale and the excitement of knowing that a couple of our pieces went overseas just adds to the satisfaction.
I was pleased with the follow up meeting after the auction when you personally delivered our proceeds and we discussed what went well and not so well and what we could do better in the future.
As I have said, I was thoroughly pleased with my learning experience as my first auction and very pleased with you and your staff’s professionalism. I will be doing business with Don Smock Auction Co., Inc. again in the near future.
