We pride ourselves on making auctions a seamless experience for both buyers & sellers. See what our customers are saying about us here and on our Google page:

I have attended numerous auctions that The Ruckman Group has put on. They are very well organized and flow well. Recently I have bid on and purchased items through some of their online auctions and their platform is very easy to use. I cannot recommend them enough whether you are purchasing or selling.

B. Douglas- Fredericktown, OH

I referred a client to John Ruckman and his team. They handled the client's parent's estate professionally. The client was thrilled with their services. I highly recommend the Ruckman Group for any auction needs you may have.

B. Stoecker- Epic Auctions, Leslie MI

I have seen John at multiple auctions and he is always working to get the highest dollar for the seller. He helps out at the Jr Fair Livestock sales at the county fairs and works to get the kids the best price.

B. Durbin- Mt. Vernon, OH

John Ruckman is an honest auctioneer with impeccable integrity, great humor, knowledge beyond his years and a fun and helpful auction staff! His auctions are always fun and worth my time!
