"I wanted to put into writing how much your effort, along with all those at James G. Murphy, meant to me in the sale of my equipment at your auction.  After over 44 years in business, the decision to move in another direction was not easy, however your honest evaluation and up front open communication made the difficult process a bit easier to handle. I appreciate the time you all took in making me feel comfortable with whatever decision I came to, assuring me that James G. Murphy would do all that it could to make the sale of my equipment a success. Thanks again to you and all those involved at James G. Murphy for making me feel that you were treating my equipment as if it were your own."
