Sellers Comments
Due to several early career onsite auctions, I had always thought "an auction would be my very last avenue. But when the pandemic interrupted my retirement plans, my options seemed limited, so I asked my local machine dealer what he would suggest I do. He introduced me to the Liebgotts and IRS, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the entire experience. The staff, process, communication, deadlines and deliverables -they all exceeded my expectations, as did the outcome of the auction. I would strongly recommend that anyone seeking to maximize the value of her/his company assets give the Liebgotts a call.

“Due to my retirement I needed a reputable company that provided online auction services that specialized in industrial machinery. I was recommended to Industrial Recovery Services because of their reputation as being the best in the nation and they truly did not disappoint! They were very accommodating meeting all my needs with excellent communication. They took detailed pictures and accurately priced and itemized everything that was to be sold in the auction. The entire process from start to finish was flawless and completely stress-free. The overall service was absolutely first-class and far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend anyone needing top-notch auction services to use Industrial Recovery Services!"

"The folks at IRS auctions did an excellent job helping us organize the machinery and equipment at our Custom Cabinet shop ahead of the actual auction. From their office staff to field support they were beyond helpful, professional and quick to respond. Their huge internet following, plus their direct mail efforts resulted in a quick sale of our assets at prices well above my expectations. I was truly blown away by their services and results achieved and I would recommend them to any business considering the sale of their assets."

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for all IRS Auctions did to help us have a successful auction. I recognize that IRS Auctions put in a tremendous amount of time and effort to work with me to get the cooperation of the SBA, and it was very much appreciated. I feel like we did well at the auction, and so the final outcome was positive. Once again, thanks so much!

“I’m smiling because we just completed the sale and removal of equipment through IRS Auctions of the facility we closed in Batesville Indiana. Not only did we receive at least 35% more for equipment than we were expecting, working with your staff was very professional and painless, before and after the sale, and payment was very prompt. Should we ever need to sell any equipment the future, we know to call our friends at IRS Auctions.”
Jasper Group
"It was a pleasure working with Daniel Kruzhilin and IRS Auctions. The process from start to finish went much easier than expected. Daniel took care of all our questions, concerns, and worries."
Eisenhardt Mills, Inc.
"I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the results of my equipment sale and the service that IRS gave. I feel so blessed that I found you, by simple word of mouth. When I initially spoke to you I gave you a real challenge; a factory FULL of equipment and little time to get it removed before I was in violation of the terms of my building sale. You immediately put me at ease explaining your expertise and reach to potential buyers. You did not embellish, I came to realize. You immediately had someone at my place to inspect, catalog, photograph and CLEAN the equipment. You gave me an estimation within 48 hours of how much I should be able to recoup from your auction. I was very happy with the range you gave me. I even downplayed it to my partners, just in case. The auction went off just as you said it would. EVERYTHING was sold. And for slightly more than the high range limit you had given me! My partners and I were thrilled. Your team scheduled everything and was in constant contact with me. The service , response time and accessibility of your team was so comforting. To cap it off, IRS wired me my proceeds the same day that the last piece was picked up! And your fee was more than reasonable. I had honestly expected to well take it in the shorts on this deal, but instead I came out great, all thanks to your team."

“I wanted to thank you and everyone at IRS Auctions for the incredible job you did for Bomboy Incorporated. Everyone at your company performed at the highest level of professionalism. The entire process was achieved without a single problem. More important, the auction brought in TRIPLE the amount that was originally estimated. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone. Again, please pass on my thanks to your entire team.”
Bomboy Incorporated
“Thank you for managing the sale in a professional way. Closing a company is a difficult and upsetting process. Your part in auctioning the equipment helped us recover maximum of its value. Please extend my thanks to your entire team.”
Berg Furniture
“The online auction of our Alabama facility far exceeded our expectations. We were shocked to see the auction revenue almost double our projected outcome. The setup of the sale was done with professionalism and strict attention to detail. IRS certainly knows machinery and how to maximize dollars for its clients."
JELD-WEN Engineering, Inc.
"The online auctions of our Bassett, VA and Mr. Airy, NC plants were well administered and meticulously organized. Your advertising efforts were well thought out and extremely effective. The IRS marketing team did a great job finding additional buyers from our area and from different industries. Thank you for a job well done."
Bassett Furniture, Inc.
Now that the dust (sawdust?) has settled, I just wanted to thank you and your team for all you did to make ours a successful auction. Everyone we dealt with was professional and courteous. A special thanks to Todd. Todd, organized, categorized, cleaned, polished and photographed everything to it's best advantage. His work made everything else we had to do to pack up the shop go so much smoother. Thank you Todd! Thank you IRS

"In regards to the equipment liquidation at Steelcase's Fletcher North Caroline Plant, I personally wanted to thank you and your company for the very professional and complete job that was done. Your company did what you said it could do and exceeded expectations. If in the future I needed to liquidate a plant and its equipment I would without hesitation use you company again."
Steelcase, Inc.
“I am so glad I chose IRS Auctions to auction all the machinery and other contents of our woodworking plant. The IRS Auction staff did a great job documenting, photographing and advertising the auction items. The auction presentation was both perfectional and impressive. I was so happy to see that the auction results were way more than I could have ever expected. Thank you IRS!”
Woodline Works Corporation
"It has been a pleasure working with you. You and your staff are professionals, who do "walk the talk". If the need for asset liquidation should come again, you can trust that you will be the first person we will call for assistance."
"Industrial Recovery Services did a great job selling our surplus machinery. All of the equipment was removed in several weeks and the plant was converted into a distribution center. Great job IRS!"
Vaughan Furniture
Smooth process and frequent communication along the way. The auction did better than we expected. Great experience and we plan to do another auction again soon!
"We could not have been more pleased with the results achieved by Larry Liebgott and the entire team at IRS Auctions. The results to the bank were better than our optimistic projections. I would welcome inquiries from any financial institution interested in using the services of IRS Auctions."
National Bank of Commerce
"You and your team were truly wonderful in getting maximum results for the manufacturing assets. The whole process, from start to finish was completed to everyone’s satisfaction. Most importantly, when the sale was over I received a timely detailed settlement and a larger check than expected."
“Being a family business ourselves, it certainly was a pleasure dealing with people who really cared enough to take the time to do things right.Through the experience and professionalism of your staff, Mid-States Container was able to maximize our return beyond our expectations on the day of the sale. If we ever have another need for your services, we wouldn’t even consider anyone else.”

Auctions Online
Pioneered by IRS, the IRS "auction online" system is a marvel of engineering that combines proven, old-world auctioning concepts with today's technology. The result is a unified, highly competitive and intuitive environment for global auction buyers to compete. This unique system allows buyers to participate in real-time without leaving their office. The IRS online system works great for complete plants, and is also an effective tool for quickly turning surplus assets into cash.
On Location & Web-Cast Auctions
IRS has several highly-skilled auctioneers all of which consider auctioning an art form. IRS "on location" auctions are best known for their high-energy and enthusiastic environment. Our auctioneer’s familiarity with industrial equipment is evident to our buyers and attributes to the overall synergy on the auction floor. Many IRS on location auctions are supported by a simultaneous web-cast. This allows bidders from around the world to participate in real-time against the bidders on the premises.
Repossessions & Remarketing
IRS is a powerful ally for many financial institutions requiring equipment repossession and remarketing. IRS has the know-how and industry alliances to properly remove and transport industrial equipment. IRS also coordinates trucks and offers warehousing. Over the years we have learned to effectively negotiate difficult situations with landlords and tenants. Depending on the circumstance, IRS can often sell the repossessed equipment before it needs to be removed.
Our industrial evaluators have decades of experience in examining and determining the approximate value of industrial machinery, equipment and other plant assets—from an entire plant all the way down to the smallest of items. IRS evaluators have been trained to factor in current market conditions, asset location, plant environment and many other important factors that determine value.
Auction Setup
IRS setup professionals take asset presentation and lot ordering very seriously. Large quantities of photos, meticulously written specifications and operational videos allow our buyers to make informed decisions. It has been our experience that informed buyers bid more aggressively. We pride ourselves in making your assets a first-class showcase.
Marketing & Advertising
Let IRS put our time-tested, international database - consisting of thousands of diverse, repeat IRS buyers - to work for you. We’ll send hardcopy mailers and/or interactive e-mailers to a large list of buyers seeking your specific types of machinery. As your mail campaign and print media are launched, knowledgeable representatives from IRS will be available to answer questions and assist prospective buyers on the bidding process and use of IRS bidding software.
