A Caring, Supportive and Customer Oriented Auction House.
Merkel's took great pains to ensure I was pleased with my purchase and I am truly appreciative. They display excellent customer service from the bidding process to shipping to items arrival. I have absolutely no issues or concerns related to my auction experience (this being my first with this auction house). Communication between the auction house and myself was personable and displayed great respect for the bidder. I am most pleased by the care and attention to packing and shipping. This issue may be overlooked in other reviews but I feel needs to be mentioned. Merkel's took great pain to pack all my train items securely and ensure their safe arrival. Bravo Merkel's!!!! I will continue to follow your train auctions knowing the compassion, empathy and support your provide. Thank you again!

Exceptional experience and service
My recent auction experience was outstanding. The registration process was easy. The bidding on my phone was very convenient. Payment was simple to arrange. And, finally, the packaging my items was the best I've ever encountered from an auction house. I could not be more pleased with my experience with Merkel's Auction Specialists, Inc.

Great to work with
My whole experience with Merkle's was very positive, from bidding (I submitted a highest bid and had them bid for me) to shipping everything was fast, easy and no problems with anything. I am looking forward to finding another treasure at one of their auctions and know it will be a positive experience all around. They shipped my item and it arrived promptly for a reasonable shipping fee.
