Steve Vaughan, Vaughan Construction “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.”


Frank P. Zebell, Tonyan Bros. Inc. “When our efforts at liquidating our equipment had stalled, we consigned with Black Star for one of their upcoming auctions and the results were fantastic. Mike’s team assessed our equipment’s value, organized photography, wrote detailed product descriptions, and handled all the marketing. We couldn’t have done this ourselves and we were beyond happy with the results. A few of our pieces are being shipped to overseas buyers — Black Star’s reach is pretty impressive. Everything sold at prices we were happy with, so we highly recommend!”


Rick Noe, President – Curran Contracting “In dealing with Mike, Andrew and crew is a Great experience. You get true personal service with people who get to know your business and fit the solution to your needs. WE Appreciate what they do!”


Molly Kelley, Owner – ABC Rental Centre “You guys did it all for us, and you did it really well.”


Dave Sustar - Controller “As the Controller for McConnell Excavating, I was, at the outset of our relationship with Black Star ACA, 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 including Mike, Jim, Lynn, Brandi and Belle were professional, courteous and easily accessible. I highly recommend these folks for assistance in the sales of excess equipment. Thank you, Black Star!”


Alex Peacock – Buyer “Purchased a truck through Black Star this month, let me tell you, I do business with many auctions and the guys over at Black Star knocked it out of the park! Mike Nigro was awesome to work with, answering all my questions and getting everything figured out! I also have to give a hand to the folks who do their title work! I got a tracking number like 2 days after the auction which is almost unheard of, and the title was here in a matter of a few days! I will definitely use these guys in the future! Highly recommend!” Page 1 of 4

Garrett Howard – United States of Freight GH

“Truly could not ask for a better company to do business with. Whether you're looking to buy, sell or auction off equipment, Black Star is the only company I'll ever recommend. We've been doing business together for a few years now and no one comes close to the service they provide. They make themselves available to you 24/7 and that's honestly a very rare thing to find these days.”
