An auction with integrity and ethics
by J & K Postal , 03/27/2015
The Brunks Auction and the family in particular run an ethical and quality auction. We have had all positive experiences in everything we have purchased and the buying process itself. They have gone out of their way to connect us with buyers of items after sold to assist us with special items when our daughter became disabled. They do a gret job and run a great auction and always have unique and special items. It is a favorite thing to do on Sundays.

When my Dad was placed in Hospice and my 85 year old Mother could not handle the house any longer, I contacted Auction Ron Brunk on a referral from a fiduciary to complete an estate sale. The whole transaction went well, When Eric and the guys came to the house to start packing they took great care to remove items without damaging the house. I thank Richard, Eric and the guys for making this as smooth a transition as possible for Mom and I.

TO LlOYD FROM LET DOWN

Thank you Mr. Lloyd for telling us all that your an auction NUT for 50 years. That would make you past 70 then and therefore declared senile! Most people go to auctions to get a fair deal on a item! Why waste your time at an auction when you can go somewhere and pay wholesale anywhere! I would hardly say your getting a deal waiting on a dealer to run an item up to wholesale and then bid over that! There's a Walmart on every corner! But gee, what do I know. I have only attended auctions for two or three years! Maybe you have more dollars then sense! (Maybe you should attend church and throw your money in the collection plate!) Also, most auctions I attend have signs or state on there website that they have absentee bidding! Don't see any signs at Mr. Brunks do you?
Missing or Absentee Bids
by Lloyd , 03/06/2015
I have been an auction nut for 50 plus years and I don't recall an auction service that did not have a list of phone bids. I set a maximum dollar amount on items I am interested in. If someone outbids me, by phone or in person, then so what. The item just doesn't end up in my personal collection. As for dealers, they usually bid up to what they feel is the maximum wholesale value of an item. If I bid one more time and win the item, then the dealer has done me a favor and helped me to purchase an item at a competitive price. THANK YOU DEALERS ! Now, on to the "porch items". Experience has taught me that normally the porch sale takes 2 or 3 hours. If I want to bid on the high end items only in one of the buildings I just show up 2 or 3 hours later. I do feel that if it is logistically possible it would be nice if they arranged the picture groups by category. One group for porch items and other groups for items selling in the buildings. Just like they do for vehicles. Anyway, thanks Auction Ron Brunk for a fair and honest sale.

We have found that every week some number's pop up during the bidding process! Yes numbers that are bidders who are not present or chose not to attend and bid with the rest of us! As stated in another review, there are so many dealers at Brunks and now even some of them no longer have to attend to bid, such as #28 or #51 to name a couple! maybe we missed the sign somewhere there telling us all we could make an on-line bid or just stay home-look at the pictures-call the office and bid! Both those #'s are dealers! I wonder if the rest of us were all dealers or favorites we could bid from home also! Nay, probably not since its not allowed! So if the auctioneer has to look at a list of bids from a sheet of paper before starting, don't look around to see who your bidding against-There not there! Then you might want to ask for a open account to charge and pay for whatever you wish, right Jimmy Hoarder and others! Or maybe just attend another auction where even you have a fair chance to win a item!
To Tony V
by LET DOWN , 01/23/2015
Yes indeed Tony V, There should be two auctions at Brunks! One for dealers such as yourself and the other for the public as a public auction should be! Dealers should be buying wholesale! Brunks is a long ways from a public auction!
Dear Let Down...
by Tonyv , 01/10/2015
There's plenty of stuff for everybody...so you got eucured out of something you wanted by a dealer...that's the nature of auctions. If you're there recreationally then appreciate tht some people are their to make a living. Quite telling that one even wants to begrudge other people we share the planet with of importing nice things to make their own lives better. Lol. Golly....all because you missed out on a chatchki!!! My only request for the Brunks would be to have 2 weekly auctions. One for the household items of lower value and the other for the finer stuff. That way they will get the target crowd for each demo and better focus and less rush during the auction itself.
NO PUBLIC AUCTION
by LET DOWN , 12/16/2014
This auction has turned into a distribution house for dealers and non documented Mexicans (who will run off with the stuff you purchased). Usually 4-5 of them there buying everything and reselling it in Mexico-(DEALERS right). And most the staff knows them by name! Then you have the local Dealers who are bidding against each other and driving the cost of the items way past what its worth! They have there little rented shops all over the valley and of coarse they have, Prescott, Flag, el Paso, Tucson, and other towns all driving up there prices and at the same time shutting out the public from winning any bids! If you attend auctions for something to do, then you will find Brunks very entertaining as the boys all cater to and call the dealers by name! We have going there for a few years now and they don't have a clue what our names are, nor do they care! The dealers keep them operating and the public gets to buy what the dealers leave behind! A year or so ago, I could have left a lot better rating!
