Prior to working with PPL we had never done an auction. We interviewed several companies to perform our equipment auction and selected PPL because of their professionalism and straight forward way of doing business. PPL exceeded every expectation we had. They did exactly what they told us on the timeline they gave us. My biggest concern related to the parties removing the equipment they purchased at the auction. Joel’s team was on site the entire time during the equipment removal and managed the process proactively.
Most importantly, Joel and his team were always available to speak if we had any questions. They listened to our questions and addressed them immediately. We were completely satisfied with PPL and would highly recommend their services.

Just a brief note of thanks to everyone on your team. Both Mike and I agree that the most difficult part of the entire transaction was deciding it was time for us to liquidate our business of 20 years. Once we made the decision, the process thanks to PPL Group was painless. As you know, ours was not a fire sale, necessitated by a poor economy. To allow us to change our lifestyle, we knew we had to close the doors on everything we had been doing for the past two decades. However, we had current business obligations that had to be satisfied prior to any dissolution. Your set up operations allowed us to continue manufacturing and complete production up to three days before the auction. It was amazing!
Then auction day was a true experience. The exposure your marketing materials and on-line bidding afforded allowed Tietz Plastics to truly maximize our asset sale. Payments from PPL Group were prompt and fully itemized. The closing package we received was most professional, and continued the pattern of excellence we found throughout the entire process with PPL Group. Thank you to everyone for exceeding our expectations. We will certainly recommend your company in the future as the opportunity arises.

I am frequently afraid to deal with the large national liquidators as from my experience I see them overcharging and providing little service. I was pleasantly surprised when I dealt with PPL Group, as they changed my perspective of large firms. PPL Group came into a litigation morass and worked to make a deal work for everyone involved. I found them to be professional, accommodating and extremely cooperative –doing whatever necessary to get the deal done. After everything was finished – I followed up several months later for a minor item, PPL Group was right there providing what I needed quickly and efficiently.

We had never done an auction before, and when it came down to choosing an auction company to assist us, we chose PPL Group due to their reputation in the industry. Not only did they meet our expectations, they exceeded them! PPL can be trusted to handle an auction from start to finish with the utmost integrity and professionalism and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them. Bottom line…they hit the ball out of the park and we were extremely satisfied with the results!

With respect to asset disposition and loss recovery, it is very rare these days to engage a service provider such as PPL Group that seems to consistently meet our extraordinary high standards with respect to initiating, monitoring, and completing a public sale or other form of asset disposition. PPL Group not only meets our expectations, they often exceed them. I have found their services to be dependable, friendly, and totally transparent. Their attention to detail, particularly in the proper and orderly exit of a third party facility upon completion of a project and their willingness to listen to my needs is extremely important to the conduct of my business and essential to maintaining continuing relationships with my referral sources.

I have known and worked with Joel Bersh of PPL Group, LLC for the past ten years on over 15 different projects. Some have been small, single machine inquiries and others have been $1M auctions. I continue to call Joel and PPL as they are extremely knowledgeable concerning a vast array of equipment and I have always been pleased with the outcome. Joel has been very easy to work with - responsive and on-the-mark concerning his estimates. I have recommended Joel and the PPL Group several times over the past 10 years and would not hesitate to do so
in the future.
