Before my husband died, he told me if anything happened to him, to have Rick do an auction. What great advice! We had a two day sale of cars, guns, tools and machinery and both doubled my expectations. Who knew you could get car guys and farmers to the same sale! The advertisment was widespread and beautifully done. Rick and Donna and their team do an outstanding job before, during, and after the sale. I highly recommend them and feel honored to have them as friends.
On June 30th we had an auction sale in conjunction with Norma Rauch in the Wolf Point area. We were very satisfied with the results. The buggy, wagons, and miscellaneous all sold above our expectations. The complete sale from advertising, selling, and settling-up was completed in a professional manner. We would strongly recommend R- K AUCTION.

We had attended a number of farm auctions directed by RK Statewide Auction Service, so when we decided to sell our farm and machinery at auction, we contacted Rick. They sure take all the work out of the process and make it a pleasure and a rewarding experience. Thanks so much Rick, Donna & your team.

Our sincere thanks for all the effort that went into our very successful Farm Auction on Mar. 15, 2008. Every aspect of the sale from initial contact, photography, inventory listings, concessions, Porta Potties, helped in setting up…and the actual sale went without any hitches. Both auctioneers were very professional in bringing in good prices. Rick’s pleasant mannerisms and reputation were why we chose him initially. His professional execution of the sale certainly stands out in our minds reaffirming we made the right choice. His kind comments as he started the sale were very gracious. The advertising was thorough and effective. Yes, it is an upfront cost, but having active, interested bidders there is what we wanted and got. The telephone calls from five states, in response to the advertising were impressive. There were many calls every day as soon as the advertising came out. The clerking, and follow-up documentation has been outstanding. Several callers commented positively on the website. The fellows working at sorting on the trailers did a good job bunching things to makes sales. Rick was always available on his cell phone, irrespective of where he was. For us, this was a once in a lifetime event and it went extremely well.

We could have said ‘NO’ During the fall of 2002 we were named the executors of a large ranch estate. We met with Rick about selling the personal effects of the deceased. Afterwards he approached us about selling the ranch itself at an auction rather than through a realtor. This was such a new idea that at first we were skeptical and could have said NO but what a mistake that would have been. We were impressed by Rick’s enthusiasm and energy. We appreciated his professionalism and attention to detail leaving no stone (or prospect) unturned. The auction netted over twice what we anticipated benefiting the heirs and numerous charities.

…Rick has an abundance of energy, enthusiasm, he is entertaining, loves what he does and has the gift of gab. He is definitely in the right line of work! R-K Auction handled all the details of the sale and made prompt payment of the proceeds, with an explanation of all the expenses. We were very satisfied and would recommend R-K Auction Service.

This past year we hired R-K Statewide Auction Company to conduct a farm equipment dispersion auction for us in June of 2005. From the planning stage through the execution of the sale, we received conscientious, courteous attention and guidance. R-K Auction Company handled all of the advertising and promotional details. Promptly after the auction, we received a check for the net proceeds along with a detailed, complete account of every item sold. We can enthusiastically recommend the services of Rick and his associates to anyone contemplating an auction. Their expertise is an invaluable component of a successful auction.

Thank you Rick, Donna and your lovely daughters for your generosity in donating your services for our recent benefit auction to help rebuild Hell Creek Marina. We had a tight time slot during the M.O.R.E show and you went through the large number of donated items with 2 minutes to spare! So many people gave fantastic items and our efforts were rewarded greatly, but it wouldn’t have happened without you! You were very professional and fun…you have a great team! We really appreciate the sale flyers that you created and distributed all over Montana and Wyoming. It really helped spread the news about our auction. If I ever personally need Auction Services you are the only company I will be calling. You are greatly appreciated!
