What our customers say...

“As a Controller, I was, at the outset of our relationship with Black Star, concerned that reporting wouldn’t be adequate or timely, integrity of the information would be lacking, and the handling of auction monies would not be totally transparent. But, Black Star exceeded what I was hoping for in these matters. They did an awesome job of timely reporting with accurate information. Everyone I dealt with was professional, courteous and easily accessible. I highly recommend these folks for assistance in the sales of excess equipment. Thank you, Black Star.”

"As a past buyer at a Black Star auction – and being very pleased that the equipment I purchased was as described -  I trusted that selling with them would get me the results I wanted. As a first time auction seller, Black Star represented my equipment well with a detailed online description and photos. I got what I needed out of the sale and I will definitely refer them and be a repeat customer in both buying and selling..”
