Erkelens & Olson are the very best at what they do.  Not only are they kind and efficient to work with-they also operate a fair, highly knowledgeable and long standing family owned business.  The entire company emanates a level of professionalism that only decades of experience can provide.

Erkelens and Olson are great to work with.  They are professional and prompt.  We had a houseful of furniture that needed to be liquidated quickly.  David responded almost immediately to our inquiry and did the evaluation a few days later.  The communication and follow through were impressive.  We were delighted with the results of the auction.  We highly recommend their services!

This was a great first time auction experience. David Olson was there for me from the beginning to the end of the process. He responded to my endless emails promptly and patiently. He sent me not one, but several photographs from various angles of each item, with dimensions, so that I could check the condition of the equipment. David kindly sat by me during the bidding process, guiding me and giving me moral support. Even after the auction David helped with shipping recommendations and packing miscellaneous items so that they wouldn’t go astray.  The entire experience was far beyond expectations.

E&O Auctions were extremely helpful in liquidating excess inventory and equipment at our building.  We found them to be reliable, on point, and communicated well through the entire process.  They served our company well, being inexperienced in the event and are certain it would be the same no matter how seasoned.

I’d like to congratulate you on a very successful auction. The professionalism and organizational skills of your team are second to none.  Rob, your sons and staff members are so impressive. It’s no wonder your name and reputation is so well established. You’ve earned it. Well done!

My lucky day was when I found Erkelens & Olson Auctioneers on the Internet.  I had a metal fabrication shop I was closing. I had all kinds of equipment from heavy duty to hand tools some over eighty years old to just a few years.  I had no idea what they were worth or how to go about selling them.  Erkekens & Olson came in took pictures put them on the Internet set up for a auction. The day of the auction from start to finish was about four and a half hours & every thing was gone. They made sure everything was picked up and paid for.  Thank you Rob and Dave you are number one in my book.

It was great to have you back. You were excellent! I was so happy you remembered everything we discussed. I couldn’t believe how you used what we had discussed and turned it into a funny statement or quick talking point that raised more money. We loved having your Dad and brother. You say we keep it simple, but we had a brand new untried idea with our 3 ‘Raise the Paddles,’ and you executed perfectly.  We had many many comments about your performance. Our audience really enjoyed it. It really was a magical night.

When we decided to close our construction company, we decided that it would be better to liquidate then to try and sell everything ourselves. We used Rob’s company because one of our subcontractors had used them when they sold out.  They were very pleased with the outcome of their sale. We were also very pleased with the sale we had too.  Rob and all his people did an excellent job of marketing the sale before hand. They were all very professional, friendly and accommodating before, during and after the sale. I would highly recommend Erkelens and Olson to anyone in need of their services.

While representing creditors that need to liquidate collateral to maximize their recovery, I have used Erkelens and Olson Auctioneers on many occasions. Rob has the best understanding that I have encountered concerning the liquidation values of all types of personal property. Their ability to identify the relevant market base for the collateral, advertise the sale and get people to the sale has consistently produced results that I am confident would not have been achieved had my clients chosen other ways to liquidate their collateral.

I am so glad that Erkelens and Olson were there, when I needed them to auction my house. The whole experience from the time I met David and Rob, was professional and comforting to know that with their experience, I was in the best situation possible, to sell my house in Midway, Utah. I would work with them again, if it weren’t for the fact that I am going back to Philadelphia,PA., because this efficient process of auctioning off my house, makes that a quick sale and closing, and knowing just when I can be out of my house in an “as is” condition, is a good deal, when you consider the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge, of a good successful sale and closing.

We hired Erkelens & Olson to liquidate via the Auction method of marketing our Sandy Utah store. They did in two days what most auction companies would of completed in two weeks. We were thoroughly happy with how the auction set up went including their marketing, the lotting of the different items, preview and the successful auction of our merchandise. We would not hesitate for one minute in recommending this company to take care of your Auction needs.

After attending nearly a hundred auction with other auction companies… I was incredibly impressed with your setup, management, and presentation at the auction.  The pace was quick, the bidding was straight forward, and I felt you did a great job serving the interests of the professional buyers, and of course the seller.

Robert Caldwell

That was the most well run auction I’ve ever attended.

This was the most successful auction we’ve had in 60 years!

Erkelens & Olson are marketing machines!….I sincerely appreciate all your help and professionalism.  You have certainly made my life easier and I believe the estate is benefitting enormously from your expertise.

I had Rob Olson and his auction staff liquidate everything in our Reuel’s warehouse than we decided to have him auction off the real estate. I had an offer of $1.9 Million and through the auction I received $2.4 Million. I was impressed with their professionalism and how they handled the situation and got top dollar for my property. I would not hesitate to recommend Erkelens & Olson
