If you are looking for an honest, efficient, family staffed auction company to handle your sale your best choice would be Mike Peterson's Auction service from Watseka.

My husband and I have used Mike's auction service on 3 different occasions and could not be happier with his service.

He sets the auction up to best display your merchandise.

He offers internet bidding and a wide area of advertising.

We would use him again for our next sale.

Do your homework before you pick an auction company.  I just sold my business tools and all inventory in 2016 including the buildings.

I personally checked with numerous auction companies, even went to their sales.  When comparing various ones I decided on Mike Peterson Auction Co.

Mike was very fair as to the terms - as far as cost goes.  He went over and beyond what I expected of him, promoting my sale with fliers, ads in all papers and on the internet.

He worked with us in helping set up the sale so it would be successful too.

Everything was settled, in full, within only a few days.  If I was ever, again, going to have a sale Mike Peterson and family would be my only choice. 

He's tops in his field!

When we decided to have an auction for our construction company we contacted Mike Peterson Auctioneers.  Mike, his family and his staff were great to work with.  With Mikes expert advice concerning advertising and promotion, and his professional auctioneering ability, our profit from the sale was more than 25% higher than what we expected.  

So when a few years later we wanted to have another equipment auction, of course we called Mike.  Once again we were impressed with the competence and skill of the entire Mike Peterson Auctioneer team, and once again our profits were much higher than we anticipated.  

We would highly recommend Mike Peterson Auctioneers to anyone thinking of having an auction.  Mikes knowledge and integrity provided us with best experience possible.  We feel that we not only had 2 very successful auctions, but that we have gained a friend.

When looking for an auctioneer, my wife and I checked with friends and family.  We spoke with several before we decided on Mike Peterson.   My wife didn't want anyone else, but Mike, to handle the auctions and she was correct.  We used him for 3 auctions.

He treated us with respect, explained everything, took care of advertising, helped us set up, moved items for best viewing, was concerned for safety & security of our items as well as the attendees at the auction, had a great staff to assist, started on time, used internet for sales and advertising, gave us a list of all items sold and price received, gave us our check for sales with itemized receipt, took care of people picking up items, and assisted with clean up.  

If we ever have another auction, it will be without a doubt, MIKE PETERSON AUCTIONEERS.  His honesty and integrity could never be questioned.
